Colorado Falls To No. 10 Baylor 86-40

Feb 22, 2006

 WACO, Texas - Sophomore Jackie McFarland and freshman Caley Dow each had 12 points, but it was not enough to overcome a strong, No. 10 ranked Baylor Bears team as they lost 86-40 Wednesday night.


            Baylor All-American Sophia Young led the Bears with 20 points, four steals and two rebounds, giving her the all-time Big 12 career rebound record of 1,224 rebounds, in her final game at Baylor's Ferrell Center.  Tricia Abbott added 12 points off the bench while starters Jordan Davie and Chameka Scott both chipped in 11.


            Baylor (20-5, 10-4 Big 12) was hot from the floor all night; they shot 50 percent in the first half and 61.3 percent in the second.  This marked the sixth straight season that the Baylor has reached the 20 win mark, all under head coach, Kim Mulkey-Robertson.


            Colorado (8-19, 2-12 Big 12) fell behind early and never could stage a serious comeback.  Turnovers really hurt the Buffs' as Baylor scored 37 points off 22 CU turnovers.  While CU's shooting did heat up in the second half, the 41-16 halftime deficit was just too large to overcome.  Junior Jasmina Ilic managed to add five points in 15 minutes, as she returned from an injury that kept her out of last Saturday's game against
.  Dow tied McFarland for the team lead with 12 points and led the team in rebounds with seven.


            Colorado will be in action again this Sunday, Feb. 26, when they host Oklahoma State at 2 p.m. MST at the Coors Events Conference Center.
