The defending Pac-12 Tournament champion Colorado Buffaloes started their European trip with an 86-73 loss to the AMW France Elite "Pro A" All-Stars in an exhibition game on Tuesday.
Xavier Johnson finished with nine points and seven boards in his first game for the Buffaloes. Josh Scott had 12 points in his debut.
AMW France has also beaten Kansas and Virginia in recent exhibition games.
The Buffs are playing five games in 10 days and will have a chance for revenge against that same All-Star team on Thursday at 12:30 p.m. MT. After that, they will travel to Belgium for two games on Saturday and Sunday and then to the Netherlands for a game on Monday.
