Laramie, WY – The Cowgirls came out strong Saturday at the Arena Auditorium and scored the first 5 points of the game and went on to beat the Idaho Vandals 68-55.
Behind a strong showing from Chaundra Sewell and Aubrey Vandiver the Cowgirls played a complete game and got the result they were looking for. Sewell scored 23 points in her first career start and Vandiver chipped in 21 and pulled down 11 boards.
"Today's game definitely did not disappoint our coaching staff or fan base," said head coach Joe Legerski. For Chaundra to get her first start, play 37 minutes and get 23 points and eight rebounds, she was a force out there on the court. That was also the quietest double-double that I think I've seen from Aubrey Vandiver. We put her in a position that she would be on the perimeter most of the game and just knock down some shots when you have the chance. She really stepped up especially in the second half."
UW led 33-21 at halftime and quickly extended their lead to 15 early in the second half.
For the game the Cowgirls shot 41% from beyond the arc and out rebounded the Vandals 36-29.
Idaho was led in scoring by Derisa Taleni who had 17.
Wyoming’s next game will be December 11th at 2:00 p.m. when they host Westminster Griffins at the AA.
