BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - Lexi Bando and Jillian Alleyne, who had her 84th double-double, scored 14 points apiece to lead Oregon to a 59-46 over Colorado on Friday night.

Maite Cazorla added 11 points for the Ducks (13-5, 2-5 Pac 12) and Alleyne, the league’s all-time leading rebounder, had 15 boards.

Zoe Beard-Fails had back-to-back baskets that helped Colorado (5-13, 0-7) to an 18-10 lead in the second quarter. Bando and Jordan Loera hit 3-pointers and Kat Cooper tied it with a layup at 4:28. Bando had a 3 in a 7-1 closing run to give Oregon a 28-22 lead at the half.

The Ducks pushed the lead to 10 in the third quarter before Colorado cut it to four but two baskets by Cazorla in the final minute put Oregon up 45-35.

The Buffaloes had three free throws to start the four quarter but Lexi Petersen erased that with a trey and Oregon steadily built the lead up to 15 with less than four minutes left.
