Cowgirls win by 14 points over CSU

Mar 7, 2013 - The Associated Press

FORT COLLINS, Colo. -- Seven minutes remained on the Moby Arena clock and the Colorado State Rams were the closest they've been all game with the University of Wyoming, trailing by seven points.

UW senior Chaundra Sewell was sitting on the bench, aching to get back into the game.

UW coach Joe Legerski obliged, and his senior thanked him by dominating the last four minutes to lead the Cowgirls to a 65-51 win Wednesday.

Wyoming ends the regular season at 23-6 and 12-4 Mountain West. The 23 wins are the second-most regular season victories in UW history, as are the 12 conference victories.

UW will begin play in the Mountain West tournament next Thursday at 9:30 p.m. in Las Vegas as the No. 3 seed.

So they'll have the whole weekend to enjoy a regular-season sweep of the Rams for the fifth time in the last six years. And Sewell was the main reason why. The Broomfield, Colo., native scored 22 points and tied a career high with 17 rebounds.

The double-double was her league-leading 11th of the season and the 23rd of her career. Sewell's 17 rebounds moved her into No. 10 all-time in UW history in rebounds with 757 boards in her career.
