Buffaloes Comeback To Top Arizona State, 71-63

USA TODAY Sports

Colorado nabs their 20th win of the season

Down by as many as 12 points, Colorado women’s basketball came from behind on the road to defeat a gritty Arizona State team, 71-63.

“We were competitors tonight,” head coach Linda Lappe told CUBuffs.com. “It was really fun to see everyone step up. Our bench stepped up, became a lot more energetic, our players on the floor stepped up and knocked down great shots.”

The win marks a number of milestones for Lappe’s team. The defeat of ASU, paired with Friday night’s toppling of Arizona marks the first time Colorado has swept a pair of opponents on the road in the Pac-12. Colorado also reached the 20-win mark, the first time CU has reached that milestone during the regular season since 2003-04, under the guidance of the legendary Ceal Barry.

For the second straight game Jen Reese led the way for the Buffs. With Arizona State in a 2-3 zone for much of the night, Reese was able to find gaps in the defense to fire off her signature turn-around jump shot, scoring a career-high 22 points for the Buffaloes. Arielle Roberson found her stroke from beyond the three-point line, finishing with 16 points. Chucky Jeffery chipped in with a double-double, with 12 points and 10 rebounds.

Colorado now sits at 20-5 and 9-5 in the Pac-12. Up next for the Buffs is a Friday night matchup in Boulder against Washington State.
