Women’s Basketball Falls To Colorado

BOULDER, Colo. – Texas Southern ran into a hot-shooting Colorado squad as they fell 79-47 Tuesday night in a road contest.
 
CU jumped out to a 9-0 lead before TSU scored its first points of the night after a basket from Shalexxus Aaron. TSU would get things going offensively as they cut the deficit to 13-8 but CU went on a 7-0 run to close out the half while TSU missed its next four shots as CU led 20-8 at the end of the quarter.
 
TSU would draw to within seven points twice in the second quarter but CU went on a 7-0 run over a two-minute span to move ahead 29-15 with 6:41 remaining. Back-to-back treys from Aaron and Jada Perry drew the Tigers to within 10 at the 5:45 mark. CU would counter and move up by 14 but Andriana Avent’s trey with 3:47 left kept TSU close as they were down 35-25. CU once again would try and pull away but the Tigers kept fighting as back-to-back baskets from Perry once again kept TSU down by 10. The Buffaloes would score the final five points of the quarter to close the half ahead 44-29.
 
The Tigers narrowed their gap to 12 in the third quarter after a pair of Ataiya Bridges free throws. However, TSU couldn’t capitalize on the momentum as they finished the quarter 1-of-6 while committing six turnovers en route to a 58-39 deficit entering the fourth quarter. CU would continue to pull away in the fourth quarter as TSU would only hit a pair of three-pointers and two free throws.
