The University of Wyoming women's basketball team dominated the second and third quarters Wednesday night to overwhelm San Diego State 87-45 at the Arena-Auditorium.

The Cowgirls (9-3, 2-1 Mountain West) led just 18-12 after the first quarter, but outscored the Aztecs 28-12 in the second quarter and 21-9 in the third.

Karla Erjavec scored a game-high 17 points for UW, with Sladjana Rakovic adding 13 and Taylor Rusk 12. Leading scorer Marta Gomez was held to two points, but it didn't matter as 11 different Cowgirls broke into the scoring column. No San Diego State player scored more than eight points.

Wyoming made 10 of 23 3-pointers and shot 54.1 percent for the game.

The Cowgirls continue MW play Saturday when they face Utah State in Logan, Utah.
