FORT COLLINS, Colo. - The Colorado State women's basketball team (2-15, 0-4 MWC) lost to MWC rival Air Force (7-10, 1-4 MWC), 56-43, Wednesday night at Moby Arena. Colorado State's struggles began early as it fell behind 13-0 after missing its first six attempts.
"At some point, you just have to put the ball in the basket," said Head Coach Jen Warden. "This team just needs to step up and score."
Junior forward Juanise Cornell led the Rams in scoring and rebounding with 12 points and 10 rebounds. This marked Cornell's fourth career double-double and her fifth double-figure rebounding game of the season. Freshman Bonnie Barbee had a career-high scoring night as she contributed 10 points, while Kandy Beemer extend her streak of consecutive games with a 3-pointer, adding two treys to finish with six points. Junior Carine Reimink had two blocks, giving her seven consecutive games with at least one rejection.
The Rams trailed at half by eight, 32-24, but a Cornell layup to start the second half cut the Falcons lead to six. However, this would be as close as the Rams would come. Air Force quickly extended their lead to 12 after scoring six unanswered points to lead 38-26 with 16:30 left to play.
"Everyone is trying their hardest to find a win," said Cornell. "It just hasn't fallen for us yet."
Alecia Steele led the Falcons in scoring and rebounding with 15 points and 10 rebounds. Raimee Beck added 14 points and 4 assists. Twelve of Beck's 14 points came in the first half as the freshman connected on all four of her 3-point attempts to open the game.
Senior Sara Hunter struggled early in the game for Colorado State and played a career-low 11 minutes while being shut out for just the fifth time in her career and the first time in 67 consecutive games dating back to her sophomore season.
Colorado State will continue Mountain West Conference play at home against rival Wyoming this Saturday. Tipoff is set for 2:00 pm MT.
