Jen Reese scored 15 points and Arielle Roberson added 13, but it wasn't enough to give Colorado a much-needed second conference win, as Washington State walked away winners in Pullman, 70-60.

"The players have got to really come together when this happens," head coach Linda Lappe told AM-760, as her Buffs fell to 1-4 in Pac-12 play. "It's another opportunity to bounce back. I wish we wouldn't have so many opportunities to bounce back but we won't take it for granted and we'll see if we can do it again on Sunday.

Colorado held a 36-35 lead at halftime, but Colorado's inefficiency on the offensive end allowed the Cougars to grab and extend a lead.
