Colorado Vs. Oregon Recap: Nate Tomlinson Lands Last Second Free Throw, Buffaloes Win 72-71

Senior G Nate Tomlinson only scored 6 points all game, but the final one counted the most as his last-second free throw led to a 72-71 comeback win for the Colorado Buffaloes (16-7, 8-3) over the Oregon Ducks (16-7, 7-4).

At halftime, the Buffaloes were looking for a comeback as the Ducks had slowly built a 37-33 lead. But the steady-shooting Buffs managed a 9-point run early in the second half, putting them up 50-46 with about 12 minutes remaining. From there, the game went back and forth as both teams jockeyed for the lead.

With only seconds remaining, Ducks forward E.J. Singler fouled Tomlinson, who missed his first free throw and nailed his second, securing the Colorado victory. The Buffs were led on offense by G Spencer Dinwiddie (16 pts) and G Askia Booker (17 pts), while F Andre Roberson watched the boards, collecting 11 rebounds.

Oregon Vs. Colorado: Buffs Look To Keep Pace In Pac-12

The Colorado Buffaloes have been one of the true surprises in the unpredictable Pac-12. Despite not having one guy that can really take over the game, the Buffs have taken advantage of great balance and a difficult home court atmosphere. In the final game before a key three-game road trip, the Buffs will look to maintain their unbeaten home record in Pac-12 play when they host the Oregon Ducks.

After splitting in Los Angeles against USC and UCLA, the Buffs returned home and delivered a dominant performance in their 82-60 win over Oregon St. Carlon Brown is the primary offensive option for Colorado, as he is averaging a team-high 13 ppg. Andre Roberson is one of the most versatile athletes in the Pac-12 and has made a huge impact on the boards for Colorado. Roberson is averaging 11.3 ppg and 11.2 rpg and has recorded a double-double in three straight games.

Oregon enters this game having won five of its last six, including a road sweep of the Arizona schools. Devoe Joseph, who transferred into the program from Minnesota,is averaging a team-high 15.7 ppg and is shooting nearly 45% from behind the arc.
