The San José State women’s basketball team fell to the Wyoming Cowgirls 70-56 on Wednesday night in The Event Center.

Wyoming jumped out to a 22-10 lead after one quarter, but in the second the Spartans offense started to get going.

San José State (1-16, 0-6 MW) opened the second period on a 10-0 run. The game was essentially decided in the first four minutes of the third period.  Wyoming opened the quarter with a 10-2 run to take a 12-point lead.

Trailing by 14 points, 47-33 with 4:10 to go in the third, SJSU made a push.  They scored nine straight led by Analyss Benally, who had five of her six points in the game in the run, and was capped by a three-pointer by Benally which got the Spartans to within five at 47-42.

Wyoming responded, outscored SJSU 9-to-2 in the final two minutes of the period, and was never threatened in the last quarter on the way to the 14-point victory.

The Spartans next game is scheduled for Saturday, January 26 at Air Force.  The Falcons and Spartans are scheduled to tip at 1:00 p.m. (MT) in Clune Arena.
