Ram Women Win Border War

All 10 active players on the Colorado State women's basketball roster helped in the 57-49 victory over Wyoming in front of 3,718 fans in Moby Arena this evening by scoring at least two points. With the win, the Rams move to a perfect 5-0 in Mountain West Conference play and a 16-3 overall record. The Cowgirls fall to 9-8 overall and 2-3 in league action.

Colorado State had three players in double figures in scoring, led by Lisa Narkiewicz with 13. Angie Gorton and Katie Borton also each chipped in 10 points. Ashley Augspurger led all players with nine rebounds, including a season-high five on the offensive end of the floor. The Rams had seven blocked shots -- one shy of a season high -- including one by Borton with 27 seconds left in the game. If the shot would have gone down for Wyoming, it would have brought the Cowgirls within four points.

"We made enough plays down the stretch to win tonight," said Head Coach Tom Collen. "Katie Borton made some clutch three's and had a big block at the end. I thought she played very well tonight. I think we did what we needed to to get a big win."

Wyoming was led by Carrie Bacon with 17 points. She and Darci Arsene also tied for team-highs with seven rebounds each. The Cowgirls went 0-for-12 from the three-point line and the Rams have held the last two teams to no three-pointers in the contest, after UNLV went 0-for-12 last Saturday afternoon.

"Our defense has been pretty solid lately," Collen added. "Being 5-0 is a great place to be in and I like going into ‘The Pit' (New Mexico on Thursday) in this situation."

Colorado State will travel and play New Mexico on Thursday evening and then face Air Force at the Academy on Saturday. The game Thursday is scheduled to tip at 7:00 p.m., while the game against the Falcons should begin at 2:00 p.m.
