BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - Arielle Roberson scored 16 points and senior Chucky Jeffery grabbed 13 rebounds in her final regular-season home game, helping No. 20 Colorado hold on for a 68-61 win over Washington on Sunday in front of an energetic crowd that braved blizzard conditions to arrive at Coors Events Center.

The Buffaloes (22-5, 11-5 Pac-12) won their seventh straight game as they took a step closer to securing one of the first-round byes for the conference tournament.

Hours before the tip, Colorado posted a statement on its website imploring fans to be careful on their way to the game. A winter storm swept through the area and was expected to drop nearly a foot of snow.

The Huskies (19-8, 11-5) were led in scoring by Kristi Kingma, who finished with 19 points.
