Chucky Jeffery isn't much of a numbers girl, but certainly understands she's making her mark at Colorado.

During Sunday's 79-36 rout of Arizona, Jeffery grabbed the 800th rebound of her career, making her just the sixth player in program history to hit that milestone.

More impressive is that Jeffery, a senior point guard, is now the first player in CU history with at least 1,400 points, 800 rebounds and 400 assists.

"It's huge," she said. "I don't really too much keep up with records and stuff like that, but to hear that and know that I'm the first person to do that is huge. It means a lot.

"I like to rebound the ball and for me to have some good numbers in points, rebounds and assists, that's good for me."

Jeffery currently sits at 1,434 points, 801 rebounds and 426 assists -- ranking in the top 11 in each of those categories. She also ranks fourth in steals, with 256.

Beating the hometown team

CU freshman Jamee Swan grew up in Tucson, Ariz., and went to nearly every Arizona home game during high school.

She took great pride in not only the Buffs' win, but her individual performance (10 points, eight rebounds, two blocks).

"A lot of my friends go to school there and they all texted me saying I wasn't going to do very well," she said. "So, it's very nice to be able to know that I did my best."


CU's other Arizona recruit, sophomore Lexy Kresl from Paradise Valley, Ariz., also had a big day, with 11 points and seven boards. She was more of an Arizona State follower growing up, but was pleased the Buffs swept both teams over the weekend.

"It's definitely great to know you made the right decision," she said.

Back on track

Junior Ashley Wilson, who missed six games earlier this year after knee surgery and has slowly been working her way back into the groove, had a nice game. In 15 minutes off the bench, she had a season-high six points and a career-high eight rebounds.

"She continues to get more back into the swing of things," head coach Linda Lappe said. "She did a nice job on the glass tonight, rebounding and getting in there, fighting and doing the things that Ashley is known to do."

Shutting 'em down

So far, the Buffs have played five different conference opponents -- Stanford, California, Utah (twice), Arizona State and Arizona. Four of those teams (all but Stanford) posted a season-low point total against CU. Stanford had its third-lowest total of the year against the Buffs.

In the last three games, CU has held Utah to 43, Arizona State to 43 and now Arizona to 36. It's the first time the Buffs have held three consecutive conference opponents below 45 points since Jan. 31-Feb. 7, 1981, when they were in the Intermountain Conference.

Since halftime of their Jan. 8 meeting with Utah, the Buffs have held their opponents to 26.4 percent shooting from the floor (51 of 193). That's over the course of three and a half games.

Arizona's 36 points was the fewest allowed by CU in any conference game since Jan. 16, 2002, when it beat Kansas 70-35.
