It’s always a great day (or night) to beat CU. Denver women’s hoops took down the visiting Buffs 85-84 at Hamilton Gym Tuesday night. The visitors from Boulder stormed back from a 13 point deficit in the fourth quarter but two late free throws by DU sealed CU’s fate.
It was a DU freshman who delivered the knockout blow. Rowan Hein drew a foul on an in-bounds pass with 3.5 seconds to go with the Pioneers trailing by one point. Hein nailed her two free throws to give the Pioneers a 85-84 lead. CU was unable to get off a final shot as the horn sounded. Denver wins.
Sophomore Ugu Ezeudu scored 13 points, gathered 6 rebounds and added 2 steals. Sophomore guard Megan Boyd led the Pioneers with 29 points in the win.
