Cowgirls Beat up on Boise State
Four Cowgirls scored in double figures led by Natalie Baker’s 19 points, and Wyoming rolled past Boise State Saturday, 82-58, in Laramie.
The Cowgirls jumped out to an 11-0 lead and never trailed. They led 35-22 at half. UW added a 25-7 run in the third quarter and built their edge to as much as 33 points in the fourth.
Wyoming head coach Joe Legerski said in a university release,
“We set the tone early in today’s game. Natalie Baker came out aggressive; we knew that we had to get her out on the perimeter to play and she did a tremendous job. I think you could see our confidence growing as the game progressed.”
