Recap


Colorado 70, Colorado State 61:
Spencer Dinwiddie scored a career-high 29 points and the host Buffaloes led by 25 in the first half before holding off a fierce rally by the Rams.

Andre Roberson had 15 points and 14 rebounds - his fourth consecutive double-double - for Colorado (7-1), which shot 59.3 percent from the field before intermission. Dinwiddie, a 6-6 sophomore guard who is averaging 25.7 points in his last three games, made his first five shots, including three 3-pointers, and finished 8-for-10 from the floor with five 3s.

Colton Iverson had 19 points and 14 rebounds - his fifth straight double-double - and Dorian Green scored 18 for the Rams (6-1). Colorado State closed to within three in the second half before coming up short in its bid for the first 7-0 start in school history.

It didn't take Colorado long to whip the sellout crowd into a frenzy as it scored the game's first nine points and 15 of the first 17. Green's 3-pointer capped an 8-0 run and brought Colorado State to within 15-10 before the Buffaloes exploded on a 25-7 burst - with 13 points from Dinwiddie - before settling for a 42-22 halftime lead.

The Rams scored the first six points of the second half and a 7-0 run - capped by a Green jumper - made it 49-39 with 13:22 remaining. After Colorado State whittled the deficit down to 54-51 with 6:44 left, Colorado got key baskets from guards Askia Booker and Sabatino Chen while surviving 12-of-25 foul shooting in the second half.
