PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) — Tia Presley and Lia Galdeira each had 17 points on Friday night as Washington State beat No. 21 Colorado 70-60.

Brittany Wilson's 3-pointer for Colorado ended the drought and sparked a 9-4 run that brought the Buffalos within 64-59 with 2:27 to play.

The Cougars stopped Colorado's next three possessions as Presley and Galdeira each had steals and WSU made 6 of 8 free throws in the final minute to close the game out.

Jen Reese led the Buffaloes (11-5, 1-4) with 15 points and Arielle Roberson chipped in 13.
