Colorado women's basketball survived a tough quarterfinal test from home-standing Washington to advance to the semifinals of the Pac-12 tournament, winning by a 70-59 margin.
The Huskies, playing at the Key Arena, located about ten minutes from the University of Washington campus, raced out to an 11-6 six lead after Heather Corral three-pointer. The Buffs struggled to find any sort of rhythm, as CU's first seven field goals were made by seven different players.
This would be the story of the evening. All eleven Colorado players who saw minutes also recorded points. Chucky Jeffery spearheaded the Colorado rally with her 18 points and five rebounds. Jamee Swan made a significant impact off the bench, tallying a double-double, with 15 points and 10 rebounds. Arielle Roberson had an off-night from the field, but she didn't let it affect her rebounding, as she totaled nine boards on the evening.
Colorado doesn't have much time to enjoy their 25th win of the season, as a Saturday night semifinal date with No. 4 Stanford awaits. Tipoff is scheduled for 8:30 mountain time.
