Milwaukee, WI — In Wednesday’s Pac-12 and Big East matchup, the Colorado Buffalos took down the Golden Eagles 71-48 — handing them their first loss at home this season.

Colorado’s defensive dominance held Marquette to a season low 48 points. Marquette entered the locker room at half with just 13 points on the board, making it a
tough comeback in the second half.

“I’m just disappointed in how we came out, we never really fixed it or got it together,” said Duffy on her team’s uncharacteristic effort. “We were back on our heels the entire game and tried all different rotations and defenses, it just wasn’t our night.”

Jordan King led the team in scoring with 10 points, on 4-of-9 shooting from the floor, while Mackenzie Hare added nine points for the Golden Eagles, and Chloe Marotta finished off with eight points.

Where Marquette lacked, Colorado took every opportunity to capitalize on this matchup, which was the last nonconference game before both teams begin conference play.

The Buffalos had four players in double digit scoring and Colorado displayed how a team’s defense became their offense in today’s game. Most impressively, Jaylyn Sherrod had nearly a double-double, finishing the game with 15 points and eight assists. Quay Miller led the Buffalos with 17 points and seven rebounds. The scoring didn’t stop there as sophomore Aaronette Vonleh finished with 16 points, Frida
Formann added 13 points on shooting 3-for-6 from three.

“Just a great job by Colorado, I thought the team was tremendous,” said Duffy.  Playing their game tough, defensively they were very good, and shot the ball extremely well.”

Colorado as a team shot nearly 60% from the field, 43.8% from three, out rebounded Marquette 33-18 on the defensive glass, and outscored them in the paint 44-24.

With Wednesday afternoon’s victory, the Buffalo’s head into PAC-12 play with a record of 10-3. The team will head up to Seattle to play Washington on Dec.30 in its next game.

“We will go back to the drawing board, take a few days off for Christmas, and get geared up for Big East play,” expressed Duffy.

Marquette will host Villanova on Dec. 28.
