Colorado Fades Down The Stretch, Falls To Georgia 84-74

The Colorado Buffaloes fought back from a 17 point deficit and extremely poor shooting in the first half to tie the Bulldogs at the intermission, but they couldn't hang with Georgia down the stretch. 

The Buffaloes trailed by only two points with 1:32 remaining in the game before clutch free throw shooting allowed Georgia to pull away. Overall, the Bulldogs shot poorly from the line, only hitting 28 of a whopping 43 free throws. Gerald Robinson totaled 21 points to the lead Georgia in a game which most of their front line experienced foul trouble in the second half.

The Buffaloes were paced by another strong game from sophomore sensation Alec Burks, who scored 23 points by constantly putting the ball on the floor and driving into traffic. Cory Higgins, the other half of the Buffaloes scoring duo, finished the game with 15 points despite starting slow.

Colorado heads to San Francisco to take on the Dons this Saturday, a game that will be vital for the Buffs to maintain a strong start.
