After a tough loss to Cal in the opening game of its first Pac-12 road trip, the Colorado Buffaloes knew they had to find a way to bounce back against Stanford. Despite an efficient effort on the offensive end, the Buffs trail 39-33 after the opening 20 minutes in Palo Alto.
Andre Roberson, who has the quickness and length to succeed against the Stanford frontcourt, led the way with 13 points and two rebounds in the opening half. Roberson hit 6/8 shots from the field and also grabbed two rebounds. Austin Dufault was the only other player to score in double-figures, as he netted 10 points on 4/6 shooting.
Freshman guard Chasson Randle led the way for Stanford, scoring 11 points in the opening half. Josh Huestis came off the bench to have a huge impact, as he scored eight points, grabbed three rebounds and blocked four shots.
