Iowa State fell 66-60 to Colorado on Saturday in a contest that stretched into overtime.

Colorado (10-6, 1-2 in Big 12) point guard Brittany Wilson, playing in place of injured starter Chucky Jeffery, put up a career-best 19 points to lead the attack. She had help from forward Brittany Spears, who scored 18 points and grabbed eight rebounds.

It was the senior’s 28th career double-double.

Senior shooting guard Kelsey Bolte led the Cyclones (13-4, 1-2) offensively with 26 points and three rebounds. She didn’t have much help as no other Cyclone managed to reach double figures.

Sophomore forward Chelsea Poppens was the next leading scorer with nine points, but totaled 13 rebounds.

The Cyclones will host Texas A&M Saturday, Jan. 22 in their next contest.
