By Mike McNeeley published February 24, 2004

The University of Colorado at Colorado Springs (10-16, 7-11 Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference) won its final home game of the season of the Western State Mountaineers (3-23, 2-16) 68-58 Saturday night in the Lionsâ€TM Den.

The Mountain Lions shot a season high 46.2 percent as they dominated the majority of the game, leading by as many as 28 points in the second half.

CU-Colorado Springsâ€TM seniors B.J. McNeally, Meghan McGee, and Elise Hazelwood all excelled on senior night. McNeally had 14 points and four assists. McGee had a game-high 16 points and a game-high 14 rebounds. Hazelwood had eight points and seven boards.

Western State did earn nearly twice as many trips to the free-throw line than did the Mountain Lions. However the Mountaineers shot just 50 percent (16-32) from the charity stripe.

The Mountain Lions will close out the season this Saturday in Grand Junction vs. Mesa State.
