          === Colorado upends No. 8 Louisville to remain unbeaten ===
 
 Boulder,  CO (Sports Network) - Chucky Jeffery poured in a game-high 22 points
 to  go  with seven rebounds,  as Colorado upended  No. 8 Louisville, 70-66, on
 Friday night at Coors Events Center.
 
 Arielle  Roberson donated 13 points, while Brittany Wilson and Jen Reese added
 11  points  apiece for the  Buffaloes (9-0), who improved  to 6-0 at home this
 season.
 
 The  victory was  Colorado's first over a top-10 team since knocking off then-
 No. 5 Stanford in the 2002 Sweet 16.
 
 Antonita  Slaughter  paced Louisville  (9-2) with 19  points and Shawnta' Dyer
 followed  with  14 points in the  setback, the Cardinals' second in their last
 three games after opening the season with eight straight victories.
 
 Louisville  trailed by  just two, 50-48, with just under seven minutes left in
 the contest after a pair of Slaughter free throws, but the Buffaloes responded
 with a 14-3 run to take a 13-point advantage with two minutes left.
 
 The  Cardinals  countered with the next  10 points to pull within three before
 four straight Colorado free throws found the margin at 68-61 with 1:06 left.
 
 Slaughter  then knocked down a 3-pointer, came up with a steal, and finished a
 layup off an offensive rebound to make it a two-point game.
 
 Wilson  then missed  a pair  at the  line to  leave the  door open,  but Reese
 corralled the rebound and finished a layup to seal the victory.
 
 Earlier  in the game,  the Buffaloes used an 11-0 run midway through the first
 half to help build a 36-30 edge at halftime.
