ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - Senior forward Dionne Marsh scored 26 points and became the top scorer in New Mexico women's basketball history in her final regular season game in The Pit as the Lobos cruised to a 76-45 victory over Colorado State this afternoon. New Mexico (17-12, 9-7 MWC) led from start to finish, handing 2-27 CSU its 20th consecutive loss and keeping the Rams winless (0-16) in Mountain West Conference play.

Marsh, who entered the game needing 11 points to pass Abby Garchek (1993-97) on the career list, scored 17 in the first half. She poured in 13 of the Lobos' first 27 points and got the record on an inside basket to draw a standing ovation from the crowd of 10,171. The Flower Mound, Texas product finished the game with 1,854 points in her career.

New Mexico jumped out to a 18-4 lead as the nation's No. 7 scoring defense suffocated Colorado State early. The Rams missed 11 of their first 13 shots and trailed 40-13 at halftime.

UNM forced 19 Colorado State turnovers on the day and limited the Rams to 27 percent (15-56) from the floor.

Senior guard Brandi Kimble also had a strong performance in her final regular season home game, finishing with eight points and 11 rebounds.

New Mexico will play BYU in the opening round of Mountain West Conference Tournament. Tip-off is set for Wednesday at 2:30 p.m. MT.
