Buffaloes Use Bench To Outlast Utah In Rematch, 56-43

Colorado Defeats Utah, Moves To 2-2 in Pac-12 Play

USA TODAY Sports

Colorado women's basketball utilized a balanced attack led by Jen Reese and Arielle Roberson to win their second straight game - both against Utah - by a 56-43 count.

"We're better when we're balanced," head coach Linda Lappe told CUBuffs.com after the game. "You could never see at any point when we subbed that it affected anything, and I think that's what you want when you sub."

Leading the Buffs in scoring was a substitute. Reese came off the bench and scored 11 points, a welcomed breakout game after scoring only ten points in CU's first three Pac-12 games. Arielle Roberson contributed ten points for the Buffs. Freshman Kyleesha Weston subbed in and provided a spark, scoring eight points in only 15 minutes of play.

The win moves Colorado to .500 in Pac-12 play, and an impressive 4-0 on the road this season. The Buffs have picked up wins at Missouri-Kansas City, Illinois, Denver and now, Utah.

Colorado will return home to face Arizona State on Friday for a 7 p.m. tipoff at the Coors Events Center
