    BOULDER, Colo. -- Jen Reese and Jamee Swan each scored 16 points as No. 14 Colorado knocked off still-winless South Alabama 94-61 in the opening round of the Omni Hotels Classic on Friday night.

    South Alabama (0-5) was thoroughly outplayed by the Buffaloes who have now scored 80-plus points in their last for games. The Buffaloes (5-0) opened up a 53-27 halftime lead highlighted by a 16-2 run at the end of the period initiated by Reese who knocked down a jumper. The run was capped-off by Brittany Wilson scoring on three layups and a 3-pointer. Colorado landed 52 percent from the field and out-rebounded South Alabama 42-28.

    Rachel Cumbo scored 19 points and Jennifer Johnson had 18 for the Jaguars.

    Colorado will play Rice in the championship game on Saturday, with Samford and South Alabama playing in the consolation round.
