    Letz scores 22 to lead Lobos past Rams

    FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) -- Abbie Letz scored 22 points and grabbed 10 rebounds to lead New Mexico (No. 20 ESPN/USA Today, No. 21 AP) to a 73-57 victory Saturday over Colorado State in a Mountain West Conference game.

    Dionne Marsh scored 15 of her 16 points in the second half, and Katie Montgomery added 15 points for the Lobos (12-3, 2-0 MWC). Jana Francis had 10 points and 11 rebounds for her first career double-double.

    New Mexico led by as much as 19 in the second half as the Lobos limited the Rams' shooting from behind the arc. Colorado State (7-6, 1-1), which had led the conference with 40 percent 3-point shooting, was just 2-for-13 on Saturday.

    Colorado State led 13-3 early as New Mexico missed 9 of 10 field goals, but the Lobos went on a 12-0 run to lead 15-13.

    Melissa Dennett scored 15 points to lead the Rams. Molly Nohr and Lindsay Thomas both added 12, and Vanessa Espinoza had 11.
