Wyoming head coach Joe Legerski said in a release from the university,
“We had a great night from Liv (Roberts). She shot 50 percent from the field, perfect from the line and finished with 18 points. We need a greater effort from everyone and find more consistency with our scoring.”
After Roberts, Dent scored 14 points, while Natalie Baker grabbed ten rebounds. UW committed 17 turnovers.
