Arizona Vs. Colorado Score Update: Buffs Lead 30-28

It was an entertaining opening 20 minutes at the Staples Center, as the Colorado Buffaloes and Arizona Wildcats have gone back-and-forth in the fight for a spot in the NCAA Tournament. With neither team shooting the ball particularly well, the Buffs hold a 30-28 lead at the half.

Freshman guard Spencer Dinwiddie was exceptional in the first half, scoring a team-high nine points. Dinwiddie hit all three of this shots from behind the arc and also grabbed three rebounds. Andre Roberson proved to be a tough matchup for the undersized Wildcats, as he scored six points, grabbed five rebounds and blocked two shots.

Arizona was able to stay in the game because of some timely shooting from behind the three-point line. The Wildcats made 5/12 from behind the arc as a team, with Kyle Fogg and Brendon Lavender each hitting two. Fogg led the way offensively, netting a game-high 10 points in the opening half.
