Cougars win 9th straight, hand Rams 6th loss in a row

PROVO, Utah (AP) -- Dani Kubik scored 15 points and Ambrosia
Anderson added 14 to lead No. 20 Brigham Young over Colorado State
70-54 Saturday.

The Cougars (17-1, 7-0 Mountain West), who led by as many as 27
points midway through the second half, won their ninth straight
game.

The Rams (7-11, 1-6) lost their sixth straight and never
seriously threatened after a 16-0 run for BYU in the first half.

Anderson, the Cougars' leading scorer at 19.7 points per game,
struggled with her shot all day. She didn't hit her first basket
until midway through the first half and finished just 6-for-25 from
the floor.

BYU held Melissa Dennett to six points -- nearly 10 below her
average.

Sara Hunter led Colorado State with 15 points and Casie Shepherd
added 12 for the Rams.

BYU held a 16-12 lead with 10:27 remaining in the first half
when BYU's Nancy Seljaas hit a jumper, followed by a 3-pointer that
Kubik banked in. Over the next four minutes, the Cougars outscored
the Rams 16-0 as Kubik scored seven points.
