BOULDER, Colo. (AP)
Colorado (1-1) dominated its smaller guests, outscoring them 44-10 within the lane and limiting them to 35 percent shooting.
Tennessee-Martin led 24-21 after a Justin Childs 10-foot jumper, but the team went cold the rest of the half. Xavier Johnson started a 24-11 run over the final 8:22 of the first half and the Buffaloes took a 45-35 lead into intermission.
Johnson helped maintain a double-digit lead for the Buffaloes with a 3-pointer and two free throws in the early going of the second half. Oldham's back-to-back treys with 12:51 remaining, momentarily got Tennessee-Martin below the 10-point deficit, but Scott's two free throws and a layup by Jaron Hopkins got the lead back to 60-49.
Askia Booker accounted for six points in a late 28-12 run by the Buffaloes to close out the game.
