The CSU women’s basketball team set a program record for the most consecutive losses in one season Wednesday night in Provo, Utah, losing to Brigham Young, 59-44.

The 14th defeat in a row ties a school record for most consecutive losses ever, originally set during the program’s third year of existence in 1977.

After a 9-0 run to start the second half, the Rams (2-21,0-10) pulled to within three, at 40-37, but coach Jen Warden’s team never managed to get any closer.

“It feels great to come here and battle,” Warden said. “… I think we played one of our best games here tonight.”

Ram senior guard Sarah Hunter scored a team-high 10 points on 4-19 shooting, including 2-10 on 3-pointers. Three Cougars scored in double figures, led by forward Shawnee Slade with 14. CSU shot 25 percent from the field as a team.

Rams Junior forward Amaka Uzomah grabbed 12 rebounds in 27 minutes.

CSU has six more chances to earn its first conference win of the season, starting with a home game next Wednesday against Texas Christian.

KCSU’s Lance Moorman contributed to this report.
