CU head coach Tad Boyle couldn't have scripted a better result in the Pac 12 opener for his program, as the Buffaloes dominated every facet of the game in their 73-33 victory over the reeling Utah Utes.
The performance on the defensive end of the court was the story for the Buffaloes, as they never allowed Utah to get comfortable on offense. The Utes hit just 12/53 of their shot attempts and turned the ball over 12 times in the loss. Utah was particularly poor from behind the arc, as it hit only 2/23 attempts. Colorado also dominated on the glass, outrebounding Utah by 21.
On the offensive end of the court, the Buffs received a balanced performance, with four guys scoring in double-figures. Spencer Dinwiddie led the way with a game-high 19 points on 6/12 shooting. Andre Roberson delivered an absolutely dominant performance, scoring 17 points and grabbing 17 boards for the double-double. Askia Booker finished with 14 points off the bench, while Carlon Brown added 10 points in the win.
