Pac-12 women’s basketball report: Colorado beats Washington State, ties Stanford for first place

USC’s win over Stanford was the headliner on Friday night in Pac-12 women’s basketball, but other big results emerged in the league. Colorado defeated Washington State on the road in Pullman. That result, combined with Stanford’s loss, puts CU and Stanford at 8-2 in the Pac-12, 1.5 games ahead of third-place UCLA and Oregon State. Colorado would be the top seed in the Pac-12 Women’s Tournament if the season ended today, due to a head-to-head win over Stanford.

Buffaloes Wire has more on CU’s 63-57 win at Wazzu:

“Most of CU’s offensive output came from two players: Frida Formann and Aaronette Vonleh. Formann tied a career-high with 27 points while going 6-for-9 from the 3-point line. Vonleh complimented Formann’s outside shooting by outworking the Cougars in the paint, finishing with 20 points and eight rebounds. The rest of the Buffs went a combined 8-for-33 from the field.”

Elsewhere in the Pac-12 on Friday, UCLA handled Cal in Berkeley. USC faces Cal on Sunday. Utah went to Seattle and defeated Washington.
