Justyna Podziemska scored 13 points and Hanna Zavecz added nine points and 14 rebounds to help lead No. 22 Wyoming to a 60-32 win over Air Force on Saturday.

The Cowgirls (20-4, 8-3 Mountain West Conference) outscored the Falcons (8-15, 2-9) 25-4 over a 14-minute stretch in the second half to put the game out of reach.

Jodi Bolerjack had 10 points for Wyoming.

Kim Kreke and Alecia Steele each scored six points for the Falcons.

The Cowgirls held Air Force scoreless for more than 10 minutes in the first half as they built a 17-4 lead. Zavecz scored six of the next nine Wyoming points to help push the advantage to 26-9, and the Cowgirls took a 33-16 lead into the break.


"It was a tremendous team effort today on both ends of the court," said UW head coach Joe Legerski. "I thought Dominique did a great job defensively and Hanna had a great game on the boards with 14. Overall, the effort from this senior group was great."

Wyoming shot 21-51 (.412) from the field, while out rebounding the Falcons 40-31.
