FORT COLLINS, Colo.—The Colorado State women’s basketball team won, 73-35, against Maryville-St. Louis on Sunday afternoon at Moby Arena. Four players registered career highs.
It was the first time that a Colorado State (3-7) opponent scored 35 points or less since Nov. 16, 2001 vs. Sacramento State. Also it was the first time since an opponent was 25 percent or less from the field since Dec. 18, 2007 at Idaho. It was also the biggest winning margin under Head Coach Kristen Holt with 38.
“It’s nice to have a game like this,” said Holt.
Senior Kelly Hartig had a career-high 16 points, doubling her previous tally of eight points in 2007 when she played for Virginia. Freshman Kara Spotton had a career-high nine points for the game. She also ended up with six rebounds and two steals playing 23 minutes.
“It was great to see Kelly scoring like that,” said Holt.
Senior Kim Mestdagh shot 5-for-7 beyond the arc and 6-for-6 for free throws. Mestdagh moved up two spots to sixth in the all-time record book for career points at CSU with 1,401.
Junior transfer Ashley Wiens and freshman Carlyn Chavez had a career-high four points each. Sophomore Hayley Thompson collected eight rebounds along with recording seven points, four assists and two steals.
Colorado State had 26 points in the paint along with 15 second-chance points and 27 points off of Maryville’s (2-5) 22 turnovers.
“I’m happy that we got our third (win of the season),” said Holt.
The Rams will head to Cancun, Mexico for the Triple Crown Caribbean Classic Tournament to play Michigan State on Dec. 20 and Indiana on Dec. 21. Colorado State will then head home for the holidays.
