Colorado Basketball 2012: Buffs Fall To French All-Stars Again

Colorado Buffaloes freshman forward Josh Scott put together a strong showing Thursday scoring a team-best 13 points with 10 rebounds, but the effort wasn't enough as his team fell to the AMW France Elite "Pro A" All-Stars, 91-74. The loss dropped the Buffaloes to 0-2 on their five-game European trip.

Colorado began the game with a 11-2 lead, but AMW used a 26-17 run in the final 10 minutes of the second half to take a 41-32 lead into halftime.

AMW put the game away with solid shooting performance in the third quarter, which featured the French team making 11-of-14 shots from the field, including four 3-pointers.

Freshman Xavier Johnson came off the bench to score 12 points and collect five rebounds, while sophomore Spencer Dinwiddie added seven and four.

Colorado has three games left on its European trip, which will venture into Belgium this weekend for two games and end in the Netherlands on Monday.
