LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) - Jodi Bolerjack scored 17 points and Justyna Podziemska added 16 to lead No. 22 Wyoming to a 70-55 win over New Mexico on Sunday.
Bolerjack made her fifth 3-pointer of the game with 14:20 left to give the Cowgirls (19-3, 7-2 Mountain West Conference) a 54-36 lead, and Podziemska scored six points in the final seven minutes to help seal the win.
Dominique Sisk added 11 points and seven rebounds for Wyoming.
Bolerjack hit three 3-pointers during an 18-2 run to open the game. But New Mexico scored 15 of the next 22 points to pull to 25-17 with 5:07 left in the first half. The teams traded runs for much of the rest of the half until Bolerjack hit her fourth 3 and Hanna Zavecz converted a coast-to-coast layup to push the lead to 37-25 at the break.
The Lobos return to action on Wednesday, Feb. 13 against San Diego State. Fans are encouraged to wear pink at The Pit as the Lobos encourage breast cancer awareness in conjunction with the WBCA's annual THINK PINK campaign. Game time is set for 7 p.m.
