The Wyoming women's basketball team put together one of the top shooting performances in program history Wednesday to defeat Air Force 80-60 at the Arena-Auditorium.

The Cowgirls (13-5, 6-3 Mountain West) were 35 of 56 (62.5 percent) from the field in winning their fourth consecutive game.

Bailee Cotton led the way with 19 points and 10 rebounds, but she had plenty of company as five Cowgirls scored in double figures. Marta Gomez added 15 points, Sladjana Rakovic 13, Taylor Rusk 11 and Tereza Vitulova 10. Karla Erjavek had a career-high 10 assists.

Wyoming made 12 of 16 shots in the first quarter to take a 26-14 lead and was 20 of 32 (62.5 percent) in building a 46-29 halftime lead.

The Cowgirls face rival Colorado State on Saturday in Fort Collins, Colorado.
