LEADERS: Colorado — A Charlie Rudy, Jr. (44 goals, four assists); A Sadie Grozier, Sr. (30 goals, 12 assists); A Zoe Lawless, Sr. (25 goals, three assists); GK Julia Lisella, Sr. (.488 save percentage, 10.70 goals-against average).

NOTES: CU topped Denver 14-7 in the Pioneers’ season opener on Feb. 28, but DU has rolled to 12 consecutive wins since. That result marked DU’s lowest scoring total of the season, and the Pioneers enter Thursday’s regular season finale averaging 15.2 goals per game…Grozier paced the Buffs in that win with four goals, while Rudy and Lawless added three goals apiece… Grozier needs two goals to become the seventh CU player to score 100 in her career…The Buffs have won four consecutive games, but after having last week’s match at Oregon canceled due to coronavirus issues with the Ducks program, CU has been idle since an April 11 win at Cal…DU leads the all-time series between the state rivals 4-3…Next for the Buffs is the Pac-12 Conference tournament, which begins Wednesday at Stanford.
