Cowgirls Find First Conference Road Victory

Jerrad Anderson/Townsquare Media

After four unsuccessful attempts, the Wyoming Cowgirls finally got their first win on the road in Mountain West Conference play Wednesday night against San Diego State (69-60).

Kaitlyn Mileto scored 20 points, Kayla Woodward chipped in 17 and Fallon Lewis added 15 points and 9 rebounds in the victory.

Wyoming (16-6, 7-4) built a 20-point lead, at 50-30, with 10:47 left, but had to hold on after the Aztecs rallied within five points, at 63-58, with only 1:42 remaining. The Cowgirls survived eight of their 11 second half turnovers that occurred during the SDSU comeback. It was back-to-back lay-ups by Kayla Woodward and Marquelle Dent that gave UW a nine-point cushion with just over a minute left.

The Cowgirls shot 42.6 percent (23-54) from the field, which included 9-27 (33.3%) from 3-point range and knocked down 14-18 (77.8%) free throws. They also out-rebounded the Aztecs 36-34.

San Diego State (8-13, 5-6) was led by Cierra Warren with 14 points. They were held to 36.5 percent (23-63) shooting by the Cowgirls zone defense. The Aztecs were 4-17 (23.5%) from deep and 10-15 (66.7%) at the line.

The Wyoming Cowgirls will try for their fourth straight win Saturday, February 15, when they host San Jose State at the Arena-Auditorium in Laramie. The game will start at 2 p.m.
