SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Hanna Zavecz hit a jumper at the buzzer, and No. 22 Wyoming overcame terrible shooting for a 53-51 victory over San Francisco on Thursday night.
Justina Podziemska scored 19 points and hit a key 3-pointer with 1:02 left, while Zavecz finished with 16 points for the Cowgirls (12-1), who appeared rusty in their return from a 15-day holiday break.
Aubrey Vandiver had eight points and eight rebounds as Wyoming made just 34.7 percent of its shots, including an 0-for-8 performance by senior Jodi Bolerjack.
The Cowgirls' struggles allowed the outmanned Dons (9-6) to stay close. Podziemska's third 3-pointer put the Cowgirls up 51-47, but San Francisco tied it with layups by Necolia Simmons and Jordan Kuzma before Zavecz's winning shot.
