PUEBLO, Colo. – Wayland Baptist couldn't hold onto an early lead as the No. 22 Flying Queens suffered their first loss here Saturday evening to NCAA Division II's 17th-ranked Colorado State-Pueblo, 78-63.

It was the final tune-up prior to the start of Sooner Athletic Conference play for Wayland (4-1). CSU-Pueblo improved to 6-0.

WBU led 18-12 late in the first quarter and was up 27-25 when CSU-Pueblo scored nine straight points to take a seven-point lead. The Flying Queens, who shot just 19 percent (3-of-16) from the floor in the second quarter (3-of-10 3-pointers), cut it to 34-29 at the half, but the ThunderWolves started the second half on a 9-2 run to take a 43-31 advantage.

But the Flying Queens battled back, and a 3-pointer by Shayla Monreal to open the fourth quarter got Wayland to within 52-49. However, CSU-Pueblo knocked down a pair of 3-pointers and another field goal as part of an 8-0 spurt that again made the deficit 12, 68-56, midway through the fourth.

That sealed WBU's fate.

The 15-point final margin was the ThunderWolves' largest lead.

Maci Merket's 11 points led Wayland's scorers, while Jade Jones and Shawna Monreal added 10 each. Deborah VanDijk and Gabby Gonzales added nine points apiece.

Jones produced a double-double with 11 rebounds.

The ThunderWolves were paced by 23 points and 10 rebounds from Molly Rohrer. Four others scored in double figures.

Wayland shot 35 percent from both the field (22-of-63) and 3-point range (9-of-26). The Queens made 10-of-13 foul shots (77 percent).

CSU-Pueblo hit 46 percent (30-of-65) from the field, including 6-of-16 (38 percent) from beyond the 3-point arc, and hit 12-of-17 (71 percent) free throws.

WBU turned it over 21 times, eight more than CSU-Pueblo.

The Flying Queens start conference play at 6 p.m. Thursday in Bethany, Okla., against Southwestern Christian (7-2), which has won five in a row.
