Colorado State’s women’s basketball team dropped a heart-breaker Sunday, losing 72-69 to visiting Boise State at Moby Arena.

CSU (5-5, 1-1 Mountain West) trailed by seven points at halftime and by five after three quarters but battled back and took the lead on a bucket by Makenzie Ellis early in the fourth. It was a back-and-forth game the rest of the way, with Boise State going up by one, 69-68, on a three-point play with 1:01 remaining.

The Broncos (6-4, 2-0) added two more points in the final minute while holding the Rams scoreless.

Annie Brady scored 23 points for CSU, and Megan Jacobs had a double-double with 18 points and 10 rebounds. Ellis finished with 14 points and Jamie Bonnarens 12 for the Rams.

A'Shanti Coleman led Boise State with 20 points and eight rebounds.

CSU returns to nonconference play with a road game Wednesday at No. 17 Tennessee (7-1), which suffered its first loss of the season at home Sunday to Texas.

The Rams won’t play another MW game until Jan. 1, when they host Nevada.
