Colorado women’s basketball recap: No. 21 Buffs close out regular season with a W
The No. 21 Colorado Buffaloes were determined to stop their first losing streak of the season and they did it with a bang, putting up a season-high 95 points in a 95-69 thrashing of the Cal Bears on Saturday.
Aaronette Vonleh had a monster day, scoring 25 points on 11-of-14 shooting from the field. Frida Formann returned from an illness to add 19 points and Jaylyn Sherrod scored 16 points with six assists. The Buffaloes only held a 43-37 lead after two quarters, but they outscored Cal 52-22 in the second half to secure a 22-7 regular season record.
Colorado will now enter the Pac-12 Women’s Basketball Tournament as the No. 3 seed with a first-round bye. The winner of No. 6 USC-No. 11 Oregon State will face the Buffs in round two on Thursday.
A special shoutout goes to Tayanna Jones, who was honored for senior day.
