BOULDER, Colo. -- The Arizona State women's basketball team was defeated by No. 21 Colorado 57-43 on Friday night.
ASU was unable to overcome a 24 percent shooting effort that included a 13 percent performance in the second half.
Chucky Jeffery scored 13 of her game-high 19 points in the second half to lead Colorado, which outrebounded ASU 47-31.
The Sun Devils (10-7, 2-3 Pac-12) led 26-22 at the half but were outscored 35-17 by the Buffaloes (14-2, 3-2) in the second 20 minutes.
After trailing by as many as five, Colorado used a 13-0 run to take control of the game midway through the second half.

The Sun Devils would get within 10 on three different occasions but could not get any closer.
Freshman Haley Videckis led ASU with 11 points, which tied her career high. Videckis scored all of her points in the first half as the Sun Devils used a long-range barrage (6 for 13 from 3-point range) to take a four-point lead at the half.
