Colorado Vs. Airzona Score Update: Buffs Rally For Thrilling Victory

Despite entering the season with limited expectations, the Colorado Buffaloes have shown they are capable of competing for a Pac-12 championship. The path to this goal continued with an impressive 64-63 victory over Arizona, which improved the Buffaloes home record in Pac-12 play to 5-0.

After trailing by four at the half, the Buffs used a strong defensive effort to rally for the victory. CU limited Arizona to just 24 points in the second half and controlled the tempo of the game. Carlon Brown was dominant in the final 20 minutes, scoring 12 of his team-high 19 points in the second half. Spencer Dinwiddie added 13 points, while Austin Dufault was clutch down the stretch and finished with 12 points and six rebounds.

Arizona was led by Jesse Perry, who scored 20 points and grabbed 10 rebounds in a high-energy performance. Kyle Fogg scored 16 points, but shot only 3/12 from the field. Solomon Hill finished with a double-double, scoring 10 points and pulling down 10 rebounds.

Colorado Vs. Arizona Score Update: Buffs Trail By Four At Half

In a key Pac-12 matchup, the Colorado Buffaloes delivered an efficient offensive performance in the opening half, but still trail Arizona, 39-35, after the opening 20 minutes. One area of particular concern for Tad Boyle and his staff will be the effort on the glass, as the Buffs were out-rebounded in the opening half by the undersized Wildcats.

Spencer Dinwiddie was simply excellent in the opening 20 minutes, netting a team-high 11 points and pulling down three rebounds to lead the Buffaloes. Carlon Brown proved to be the other primary scoring option for CU, as he scored seven points. Askia Booker and Sabatino Chen came off the bench and combined to score nine points.

The Buffs could find no answer for Jesse Perry, as the high-energy forward completely dominated the game. Perry scored 12 points and grabbed seven rebounds, using his effort to give Arizona numerous second-chance opportunities. Josiah Turner added nine points and three assists for Arizona.
