Colorado women’s basketball Pac-12 Tournament recap: No. 3 seed Buffs hold off Oregon State

Upsets were the theme of the first two rounds of the Pac-12 Women’s Basketball Tournament as Utah, USC and Arizona had all fallen to lower seeds. Through the majority of the first half, it looked like No. 3 seed Colorado might be added to that list.

Oregon State played really well in the first half, at one point holding a nine-point lead over CU built mostly on the back of hot shooting from beyond the 3-point line. The Buffs were able to tie the game at the half thanks to a 9-2 run late in the second quarter.

CU had a trio of double-digit scorers in Frida Formann, Jaylyn Sherrod and Aaronette Vonleh, accounting for 16, 12 and 15 points, respectively. Quay Miller had a rare off-night, scoring two points and missing all nine of her field goal attempts.

Colorado will be right back at it as they take on another upset-minded squad in No. 7 seed Washington State on Friday at 9:30 p.m. MT in the semifinals. The Cougars are responsible for ending No. 2 seed Utah’s tournament run.
