Lobos, Bulldogs and Cowgirls all move on to semifinals

[smartslider3 slider=”87″]
The Colorado State women’s basketball team drew the late card during the quarterfinal round of the Air Force Reserve Mountain West Championships. Prior to the Rams, there were three battles that decided who would move on to the semi-final round and who would see their season ended early. 


No. 1 University of New Mexico versus No. 9 United States Air Force Academy 

The United States Air Force Academy Falcons had a quick and daunting turnaround ahead of them after they beat San Diego State University yesterday. The University of New Mexico Lobos quickly proved to be a threat worthy of the No. 1 seed in the tournament. Sharing the wealth, UNM had four players finish the game with double-digit points. Coming off the bench, LaTascya Duff lead the Lobos with a team-high 14 points. Despite losing, AFA’s Riley Snyder finished with an impressive 23 points against the regular-season champs. 

No. 4 California State University, Fresno versus No. 5 University of Nevada, Reno

Despite a somewhat competitive first half, the California State University, Fresno Bulldogs blew the doors open against University of Nevada, Reno to close out the second quarterfinal. The trio of Fresno State guards were largely responsible for the 70-46 Bulldog win. Twins Haley and Hanna Cavinder combined for 30 points, and senior Aly Gamez piled it on adding another 14. Scoring 15 points apiece, Amaya West and Nia Alexander were the lone bright spots for the Wolfpack.

No. 2 University of Nevada, Las Vegas versus No. 7 University of Wyoming 

Surprising everyone in the Thomas & Mack Center, the University of Wyoming Cowgirls came out firing. Wyoming led 32-21 going into the half, but their deep-threat theatrics would continue well into the second half. Behind dominating performances from Tommi Olson and Quinn Weidemann, both with four 3-pointers on the game, the Cowgirls would win 72-56, shocking the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. Wyoming’s offense was not limited to their starters either, as McKinley Bradshaw totaled 15 points off the bench

Should the Colorado State Rams win later tonight against Boise State University, they will be playing an explosive Wyoming team come tomorrow’s semifinal round.

About the Contributor
Devin Cornelius, Digital Managing Editor
Devin Cornelius is the digital managing editor for The Collegian. He is a fifth-year computer science major from Austin, Texas. He moved to Colorado State University and started working for The Collegian in 2017 as a photographer. His passion for photography began in high school, so finding a photography job in college was one of his top priorities. He primarily takes sports photos, volleyball being his favorite to shoot. Having been on The Collegian staff for 4 1/2 years, he's watched the paper evolve from a daily to a weekly paper, and being involved in this transition is interesting and exciting. Although Cornelius is a computer science major, his time at The Collegian has been the most fulfilling experience in his college career — he has loved every second. From working 12-hour days to taking photos in Las Vegas for the Mountain West Conference, he cannot think of a better place to work. Working as a photographer for The Collegian pushed him outside of his comfort zone, taking him places that he never expected and making him the photographer he is today. As the digital managing editor, Cornelius oversees the photos, graphics and social media of The Collegian along with other small tech things. Working on the editorial staff with Katrina Leibee and Serena Bettis has been super fun and extremely rewarding, and together they have been pushing The Collegian toward being an alt-weekly. Outside of The Collegian, he enjoys playing volleyball, rugby, tumbling and a variety of video games. When in Austin, you can find him out on the lake, wake surfing, wake boarding and tubing. You can expect that Cornelius and the rest of The Collegian staff will do their best to provide you with interesting and exciting content.
