No. 7 Colorado 85, Boston University 55

BOULDER, Colo. — Frida Formann scored 22 points and No. 7 Colorado used a 38-3 run starting late in the third quarter to pull away from Boston University.

Trailing 50-47 with 2:27 left in the third, Colorado went on its spurt courtesy of the inside play of Quay Miller and Aaronette Vonleh, the driving of Jaylyn Sherrod and the outside shooting of Formann.

It all added up to a bounce-back win for the Buffaloes (7-1), who lost their first game of the season over the weekend to No. 5 North Carolina State at the Paradise Jam Classic.

Vonleh had 18 points, Miller added 12 and Sherrod finished with 14. Formann’s big night helped her become the 34th Colorado women’s player to eclipse the 1,000-point mark for a career.

Colorado led by as many as 13 points only to see the Terriers (5-2) storm back in the third quarter to take a brief lead. That’s when the Buffaloes focused on going inside — and turned up the defense. The Terriers went 1 for 8 with 10 turnovers in the fourth quarter.

Caitlin Weimar had 16 and 12 rebounds for Boston, while Alex Giannaros added 16. The Terriers fell to 0-6 all-time against teams in the Pac-12.

No. 12 Utah 100, Carroll College 44

SALT LAKE CITY — Alissa Pili scored 20 points, Gianna Kneepkens added 19 points and No. 12 Utah beat NAIA-member Carroll College 100-44 on Tuesday for its 20th straight home win.

Utah (6-1) reached the 100-point mark for the fifth time this season. The Utes also scored 98 points in a 64-point victory against Merrimack College on Friday.

Utah led 75-36 after three quarters. The Utes were shooting 70% from the field entering the fourth, including 12 of 17 from 3-point range. Carroll was 12 of 39 from the field with 13 turnovers. Utah also made its first 3-pointer of the fourth.

The Utes finished at 67% shooting with a 40-18 rebounding advantage.

Kneepkens, in her second season, became the 31st player in program history to reach the 1,000-point club after making 8 of 8 field goals, including three 3-pointers. Pili made 8 of 10 shots and freshman Reese Ross hit 6 of 6 to reach 16 points.

Jenna Johnson added 15 points for Utah (6-1). Kennady McQueen, who made six 3-pointers against Merrimack, had two of Utah’s 14 3-pointers.
