Guard Alba Sanchez Ramos scored a career-best 27 points, but it wasn’t enough for the University of Wyoming women’s basketball team during an 83-80 overtime loss to visiting Fresno State on Monday night at the Arena-Auditorium in Laramie.

Sanchez Ramos went 9 for 18 from the field, including a 5 for 8 mark from behind the 3-point arc.

The Cowgirls (4-3 overall, 2-2 Mountain West) led 20-9 after the first quarter and 34-32 at halftime. They led by as much as eight points during the second half before Fresno (4-4, 2-2) rallied to force the game into overtime.

“I think (Fresno) made some tough plays, they made some extra plays,” Cowgirls coach Gerald Mattinson said in a news release. “They kept attacking the basket, and tried everything buy we let them get too deep, too close too often and that’s what they do. They’re a good team.”

Junior Quinn Weidemann added 16 points for UW, while senior Jaye Johnson chipped in with 12 points. Weidemann also grabbed six rebounds.
