NCAA Game Summary - Oregon State at Colorado



(Thursday, January 2nd)

Final Score: (20) Colorado 64, Oregon State 58

Boulder, CO (SportsNetwork.com) - Josh Scott had 13 points and 10 rebounds to help No. 20 Colorado edge Oregon State in a 64-58 victory at the Coors Events Center in the Pac-12 opener for both teams.

Askia Booker and Jaron Hopkins each contributed with 13 as well for the Buffaloes (12-2, 1-0), who have a flawless 10-0 record at home.

The Pac-12 leading scorer, Roberto Nelson, tallied a game-high 23 points for the Beavers (8-5, 0-1), who haven't defeated a Top-25 team on the road since Jan. 5, 1985 when they upset No. 15 Washington.

Despite committing 12 first half turnovers, Oregon State trailed just 28-23 at the break. Colorado finished the half on a 10-5 spurt.

Colorado extended its advantage to 10 but a Langston Morris-Walker 3 from the corner and four straight free throws tied the game at 40 with just under 10 minutes to play.

The Buffaloes answered with a 9-0 run to regain control and led by nine with 3:30 left. Malcolm Duvivier hit a wide open 3 from the corner to cut it to 60-56 at the 2:10 mark.

Booker threw up a prayer as the shot clock expired with 49 seconds remaining but Colorado grabbed the offensive rebound and made 3-of-4 free throws down the stretch to secure the win.

Game Notes

Colorado plays Oregon on Sunday ... Oregon State plays at Utah on Saturday ... Beavers guard Eric Moreland returned from a 12-game team suspension and grabbed a team-high 10 boards off the bench ... Colorado leads the series 10-4 all-time.
