BOULDER, Colo. (AP) — Jen Reese put the brakes on Colorado's freefall by scoring 22 points to spark the Buffalos past Arizona, 68-47 Friday night.

Colorado (12-6, 2-5 Pac-12), ranked No. 11 in Week Seven, had lost six of its past eight games going into Friday's game — including 10-point losses to unranked Washington State and Washington last week.

Coming into Friday's game Colorado was shooting just 37.1 percent from the field and 63.5 percent from the line. Against the Wildcats the Buffaloes shot 24 of 48 (50 percent) from the field and 13 of 19 from the line (68.4 percent).

Reese shot 8 for 13 from the field and was 6 of 7 from the line. Lauren Huggins added 15 points, Brittany Wilson 12 and Arielle Roberson pulled down 10 rebounds.

Candice Warthen scored 14 points to lead Arizona (4-14, 0-7), which struggled with 20 turnovers while Colorado collected five blocked shots.
