A dominant start and a strong second half powered the University of Wyoming women's basketball team to a convincing 60-49 victory over rival Colorado State at Moby Arena in Fort Collins.
The Cowgirls held Colorado State to just 25 percent (6-of-24) from the floor in the first half as the Rams managed just 14 first-half points.
Wyoming (14-5, 7-3 Mountain West) was able to maintain its lead throughout the second half. Senior forward Marta Gomez led the Cowgirls with 20 points with classmate Bailee Cotton adding 12 points and seven rebounds. Freshman point guard Karla Erjavec tallied nine points, six assists and four rebounds.
Liah Davis led Colorado State (8-14, 2-9 MW) with a game-high 21 points, nine of which came from the free-throw line.
The Cowgirls, who have now won five in a row, host Utah State at the Arena-Auditorium on Wednesday.
