BOULDER, Colo. (AP) Xavier Johnson scored a career-high 27 points and grabbed 12 rebounds, and Wesley Gordon had 10 points and nine boards, leading Colorado to a 75-60 win over Wofford on Sunday.

George King scored all 10 of his points in the second half for the Buffaloes (5-1), who overcame a lackluster start to win their 12th straight at home. The junior didn't attempt a shot in the first half.

King hit all four shots from the field in the second and helped Colorado push its lead to 11. Johnson had a quick seven points as part of a 12-6 burst to extend the lead to 69-55 with 2:30 remaining.

Fletcher Magee led Wofford (1-5) with 15 points, while Cameron Jackson and Ryan Sawvell each had 10. The Terriers have lost four straight.

Early on, Wofford looked like the more energized team and trailed by just one point at the half.
