Colorado falls to 1-5 in Pac-12 play

After trailing by 12 to Washington at halftime, Colorado women's basketball stormed back to take a one-point lead with 8:42 remaining, only to drop their fourth straight game, 81-71.

Washington's Kelsey Plum made her living at the free-throw line, scoring a career-high 35 points on 18 free-throws and seven field goals.

Overall, Washington went to the line on 46 occasions, converting 38 times, a record for a CU opponent.

"We put them to the free throw line way too much," head coach Linda Lappe told AM-760. "You have a team shooting 46 free throws, and they only hit 18 field goals."

Arielle Roberson led the Buffs with 20 points. Brittany Wilson added 16 and Jen Reese scored 13 points.

Colorado comes home next weekend to face the Arizona and Arizona State.
