BOULDER, Colo. -- Ashleigh Fontenette scored 13 points, Cokie Reed added 12, and Texas (No. 19 ESPN/USA Today, No. 14 AP) routed mistake-prone Colorado 74-50 on Wednesday night for its fourth consecutive win.

Kathleen Nash and Brittainey Raven added 10 points each for the Longhorns (17-6, 6-3 Big 12). Texas beat Colorado for the 10th time in 11 meetings in continuing its strong play since starting the conference season with consecutive losses.

Chucky Jeffery had 12 points to lead Colorado (12-10, 2-7), which lost its 15th in a row to a ranked opponent. Alyssa Fressle added 11.

Capitalizing on 11 first-half turnovers by Colorado, Texas got its transition game going, scoring one easy basket after another on fastbreaks en route to a 41-21 lead at halftime.

Texas had extended its lead to 64-34 with 8:05 left when Lauren Flores banked in a fastbreak layup following yet another Colorado turnover. The Buffaloes had 22 turnovers overall leading to 39 points for the Longhorns.

That's the way it went throughout for Colorado, which fell behind 14-0 in the game's first five minutes before Bianca Smith hit a 3-pointer for the Buffaloes' first basket.
