BOULDER, Colo. (AP) — Aaronette Vonleh scored 18 points, Jaylyn Sherrod added 16 with nine assists and five steals, and No. 20 Colorado blew a 12-point lead before pulling away in the closing minutes to beat Oklahoma State 86-75. Vonleh made a layup with 5:05 to play that gave the Buffaloes the lead for good and Forman, who had missed each of her seven shot from behind the arc, followed with a 3-pointer. Sherrod converted a three-point play before Wetta made a 3 and then stole the ball and made a layup to cap a 13-3 run that gave Colorado a 79-69 lead with 2 minutes left. Anna Gret Asi led Oklahoma State with 25 points and hit six of the Cowgirls’ program-record 15 3-pointers.

This win put Colorado in the top five of the women's AP Top 25 after a chaotic opening week. South Carolina moved up to No. 1.

Nine of the first 14 teams lost, including previous top choice LSU and second-ranked UConn.

The Gamecocks were sixth in the preseason poll and received 23 first-place votes from the 36-member national media panel. Iowa was second garnering the other 13 first-place ballots. LSU fell to seventh and UConn dropped to eighth. Despite the loss, the Huskies now have been ranked for 566 consecutive weeks, breaking a tie with Tennessee for the longest streak all-time.
