After opening Pac-12 play with three consecutive wins in Boulder, the Colorado Buffaloes were brought back to reality on their trip to the Bay Area. Following a hard-fought loss to Cal in the opening game of this road trip, the Buffs were dominated in every facet of the game in their 84-64 loss to Stanford.
Prior to this matchup, Colorado had gone 11 straight games without allowing its opponent to reach 70 points. However, the Buffaloes could find no answer for the Stanford offense, which shot 52.9% from the field. Freshman guard Chasson Randle led the way with 18 points on 6/11 shooting, while Josh Huestis came off the bench to score 13 points and block five shots in the win.
Andre Roberson led the way for CU in the loss, scoring 15 points. However, Roberson wasn't productive on the glass, pulling down a season-low four rebounds. Austin Dufault added 14 points, while Spencer Dinwiddie scored 11 points and grabbed six rebounds.
