Scott, Gordon lead Colorado to 71-54 win over Oregon State
BOULDER, Colo. (AP) Josh Scott and Wesley Gordon combined for 37 points, 26 rebounds and nine blocked shots to help Colorado withstand a career night from Gary Payton II in a 71-54 win over Oregon State on Wednesday.
Scott finished with a season-high 25 points and grabbed 12 rebounds. Fellow big man Gordon was just as effective as he contributed 12 points and 14 boards for the Buffaloes (13-4, 2-2 Pac-12), who bounced back from a demoralizing 56-54 loss to Utah last week on a last-second layup.
Payton had a sensational game for Oregon State (11-4, 2-2) as he scored a career-high 26 points and grabbed a season-best 15 rebounds. He kept the Beavers in this game when not much else was working.
The senior guard has now scored in double figures in 14 of 15 games this season.
