BOULDER, Colo. – The Oregon State women's basketball team dropped its final game of the regular season Saturday afternoon, as Colorado took a 60-45 win in Boulder.
"I really liked our defensive effort in the second half," said Oregon State head coach Scott Rueck. "This team doesn't quit, they keep battling. We've been learning a lot of tough lessons lately. Colorado is a veteran team and they're having a great year. Give them a lot of credit."

As a team, the Beavers held Colorado to 37 percent shooting.
The Beavers used an early 7-0 run to go in front 9-4. The Buffaloes answered with seven unanswered points to take the lead late in the first quarter. Colorado headed to the second quarter up 22-16.
Oregon State battled back to take the lead on a Mitrovic runner, but Colorado went in front 30-25 mid-way through the second. The Buffaloes ultimately scored 15-straight points on their way to a 42-26 halftime lead.
The Beavers cut the deficit to single-digits five minutes into the second half, but the Buffaloes led 51-38 after three periods of play. Colorado took the win by 15.
