Fast break

What went right: CU was solid on the boards and played scrappy most of the night and put itself in striking distance of the Sun Devils early in the fourth quarter.

What went wrong: Poor shooting – from the field, from 3-point range and from the free throw line – were costly, as were turnovers in crucial moments.

Star of the game: Sila Finau. The freshman had just six points for the Buffs, but also a season-high six assists and five rebounds.

What’s next: The Buffs play at Arizona on Sunday at noon MT.

TEMPE, Ariz. — After snapping its long losing streak on Sunday, the Colorado women’s basketball team was aiming to make it two in a row on Friday night.

The Buffaloes, however, fell behind early and never really threatened 19th-ranked Arizona State in a 66-49 loss at Wells Fargo Arena.

Senior Alexis Robinson scored 13 points for CU (11-13, 1-12 Pac-12), but the Buffs had a rough night offensively against the Sun Devils (17-6, 8-4).

The Buffs made just 34.7 percent of their shots (17-of-49), including 15.4 percent from 3-point range (2-for-13). They also struggled at the free throws line, hitting just 50 percent (13-for-26).

Arizona State was led by Kianna Ibis, who had 18 points and nine rebounds, and Courtney Ekmark, who posted 14 points.

CU scored the first bucket of the game, but that would be the Buffs’ only lead. ASU went on a 13-3 run to establish an eight-point lead just 6 minutes into the game and led by at least seven points the rest of the way.

Down by 19 in the third, CU cut the deficit to 11 points midway through the fourth, but ASU responded with an 11-0 run to open its biggest lead of the game, 66-44.

Quinessa Caylao-Do added nine points for the Buffs, while freshman point guard Sila Finau added six points, a season-high six assists and five rebounds.

The Sun Devils swept the season series and are now 10-0 against the Buffs in the past six years.

CU played its 10th consecutive game without senior point guard Kennedy Leonard, who is out with a foot injury. She is on the trip, however, and could play for a few minutes against Arizona on Sunday.
