LARAMIE, Wyo. — Jamee Swan had a career night on Monday.
Unfortunately for the senior, it came on a night she and the Colorado women's basketball would like to forget.
Swan tied her career high with 28 points and added 13 rebounds, but CU had an abysmal middle two quarters to fall to host Wyoming, 77-68 at Arena-Auditorium.
The Buffaloes (5-6) finished nonconference play with a losing record for the first time in 10 years and had a five-game winning streak against the Cowgirls (7-3) snapped.
CU led by as many as nine early and took an eight-point lead into the second quarter. The Buffs were outscored 65-48 during the final 30 minutes, though.
Swan, who recorded her 13th career double-double and second in a row, did her best to keep the Buffs in it.
She had 14 of CU's 17 points in the first seven minutes of the third quarter, to pull the Buffs within five, 51-46.
Wyoming then went on a back-breaking 11-0 run to bury the Buffs, 62-46, late in the third. Back-to-back 3-pointers by Skyler Snodgrass and Marta Gomez to cap that run served as daggers.
The Buffs did rally early in the fourth. Kennedy Leonard drained a 3 to spark a 9-0 run that pulled CU within seven, 66-59, with 6:31 to play.
Wyoming responded, however, with a 6-0 surge and never looked back.
Leonard finished with 18 points for the Buffs, but made just 36 percent of their shots (26 of 72).
Despite a season-high 20 offensive rebounds, the Buffs had just eight second-chance points.
