CU Women off to 8-0 start after win over Denver

By  | 

Colorado is off to an 8-0 start for the fourth time in team history. CU won its first 12 last season and also had starts of 12-0 in 1980-81 and 15-0 in 1992-93.
Colorado claims its 21st consecutive nonconference regular season win. The Buffaloes have also won 28 of 32 such contests dating back to the 2010-11 season.
Colorado improved its series lead over Denver to 6-2 and records its first win in Magness Arena in three tries. The Buffaloes improve to 2-2 all-time against DU on the road.
Colorado’s 83 points are a season high and the most in a true road contest since scoring 83 in a 3-point loss at Colorado State on Nov. 30, 2005.
Colorado had exactly 50 rebounds, hitting the 50 mark for the second straight game (59 vs. CSU) for the first time since grabbing 50 against UC Irvine and 52 against Illinois-Chicago in the first two games of the 2009-10 season.
Chucky Jeffery (14 points, 11 rebounds, 5 assists, 2 steals) recorded her 22nd career double-double, tying Sandy Bean (1978-82) for fifth all-time at CU. Her 11 rebounds also vaulted her from 10th to a tie for 7th with Bridget Turner (1985-89) on CU’s all-time rebounds list with 725. It was also her 70th double-figure scoring game and 24th double-figure rebounding game. Jeffery has double-figure rebounds in three of her last four games, averaging 10.3 per game in that span.
Brittany Wilson (19 points, 7-of-12 FG, 3-of-6 3FG) scored a season-high 19 points, leading the Buffaloes in scoring for the second straight game and third time this season. She became the 13th player in CU history to reach 80 career 3-pointers (80). She has shot 12-of-22 from the field over the past two games including 6-of-11 from 3-point range.
Arielle Roberson (11 points, 6 rebounds) recorded her eighth straight double-figure scoring game to begin her career, the second best mark in team history.
