Kresl's 20 Points Lead Colorado over New Mexico

USA TODAY Sports

Colorado finishes the non-conference schedule undefeated

For the second straight season, Colorado women's basketball finished their non-conference schedule at a perfect 11-0, culminating in a 84-39 annihilation of New Mexico.

"That was a great team win," said head coach Linda Lappe, after being honored for her 100th career victory. "We played as complete of a game as we have played this year."

Leading the 23rd-ranked Buffs in scoring was Lexy Kresl, who hit all five thee-pointers she attempted, finishing with 20 points. Freshman Arielle Roberson contributed 18 points and seven rebounds in her 11th straight game with 10 or more points. Chucky Jeffery and Jen Reese both scored in double figures, with 11 and 10, respectively.

Kresl hit 63 three pointers in her freshman year and averaged nine points per game. Early on this season however, Kresl had struggled to find her shot, converting on under 25 percent of her three point attempts coming into Saturday afternoon. Kresl decided to focus less on her offensive struggle and just focus on shutting down New Mexico's leading scorer.

"Once I put aside me worries it kind of just came to me," said Kresl.

The Buffs will open conference play on Friday against Stanford, who will almost certainly lose their top ranking after losing by 26 to Connecticut.
