Ugly loss at CSU-Pueblo

By Mike McNeeley published February 7, 2004

This was one rough weekend for the Mountain Lions.

One night after blowing a 19 point second half lead to New Mexico Highlands, CU-Colorado Springs was blown out by CSU-Pueblo Saturday night in Pueblo.

The University of Colorado at Colorado Springs (8-12, 6-7 Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference) was absolutely manhandled by the Colorado State-Pueblo Thunderwolves (14-7, 10-3), 82-44.

Very little went right for CU-Colorado Springs. They were outshot by the Thunderwolves 51.7 percent to 22.8 percent. They were outrebounded 43-36. The Mountain Lions also committed more turnovers, 16-11.

The Thunderwolves jumped out to an early 11-4 lead over the gameâ€TMs first two minutes. The Mountain Lions fought back and cut it to 11-8 on a pair of McNeally free throws. Three points is as close as CU-Colorado Springs would be for the rest of the night.

Southern Colorado led by 18 at halftime and by the midway point of the second half, it was just plain ugly.

The Thunderwolves opened the half scoring 29 of the first 34 points to extend their lead to 42 points, 71-29.

Nadia Fercha led four Thunderwolves in double figures with 18 points on 8-of-11 shooting. Jennine Sauter added eight points and seven rebounds for the Mountain Lions. Julie Richards and Meghan McGee each had seven points, while Michele Kipp added a career-high five points.
