Rams rally to defeat Cornell

Following a disappointing home lose loss to Northern Colorado, Colorado State women’s basketball (2-2) rallied in the fourth quarter to defeat Cornell, 56-53 at Moby Arena Sunday.

The Rams trailed for the vast majority of the game, but outscored the Bears 35-31 in the second half to secure the non conference victory. In the game, CSU played excellent team defense as the Rams held Cornell to 35 percent shooting from the floor and 25 percent shooting from 3-point territory.

"It was fun to watch our kids battle and scrap all night,” head coach Ryun Williams told reporters postgame.

“It was going to be a close basketball game. I think you have two teams that kind of struggle scoring the ball (so far this season). We knew that going in, so it was a possession game and I was really happy how we made some plays late, both offensively and defensively. This group just needed to feel a victory. This is a whole new team, and for them to learn how to win and learn to win in a close game, I'm proud of them."

In the victory, CSU was once again paced by Lore Devos, who led the Rams with 14 points. Tatum Neubert also finished the afternoon in double-digit figures with 12 points.

The Rams will hit the road for the second time in non conference play on Nov. 28 when CSU faces Gonzaga in Spokane, Wash.
