Colorado State overcame a 5-minute scoring drought to start the fourth quarter, and the first-place Rams held off Boise State 60-53 in a Mountain West women’s basketball game Wednesday at Taco Bell Arena.
The Broncos (15-6, 5-5) went more than 7 minutes without a point in the first half, which allowed CSU to make a 16-0 run and take the lead for good. BSU had a 12-point streak and closed the deficit to one on a Jordan Woodvine free throw with 6:29 remaining, but she missed the game-tying attempt, and the Rams scored 11 of the next 13.
Joyce Harrell had career bests of 13 points and eight rebounds to lead BSU in her second collegiate start.
