Colorado 55, Utah 48
Andre Roberson had 12 points and 15 rebounds and Austin Dufault
added 11 points as Colorado defeated Utah 55-48 Saturday.
The win was the second this season over the Utes, who lost 73-33
to the Buffaloes (17-8, 9-4 Pac-12) on New Year’s Eve in the Pac-12
debut for both teams.
Colorado guard Carlon Brown suffered through a miserable
shooting performance – going 2 for 12 – and finished with five
points in his return to Salt Lake City, where he played three
seasons for Utah.
Jason Washburn led Utah (5-20, 2-11) with 16 points and 10
rebounds. Chris Hines added 12 points on four 3-pointers.
The Utes trailed by as many as nine points in the second half,
but tied the score at 44 with 4:23 remaining. Colorado then went on
a 6-0 run, Dufault got a late block and the Buffs sank key free
throws down the stretch to secure the win.
