BOULDER, Colo. (AP) – Lauren Huggins scored 16 points and hit five 3-pointers as No. 17 Colorado rolled past Alcorn State 83-33 Friday night.

The Buffaloes (2-0), who shot 45.3 percent from the field, held Alcorn State to just six points in the first 10 minutes of play, coasting out to a 42-14 advantage at the break.

Colorado also hit eight 3-pointers and combined for 19 assists and 12 steals. Huggins’ only field goal attempts came from beyond the arc as she finished 5 of 10 and added a free throw.

Jasmine Sborov scored 10 points with 4-for-4 free throw shooting, and Jen Reese and Lexy Kresl each had nine points for the Buffaloes.

The Braves (1-2) were held to just 10 of 50 shooting and could only hit one of their 15 3-point attempts. They were led by Tierro Frost, who scored 12 points and hauled in a game-high eight rebounds.
