Colorado Basketball 2012: Buffaloes Beat Rotterdam, 96-57

The Colorado Buffaloes finished their European tour on Monday night with a convincing 96-57 win over the Netherlands' Rotterdam Chargers. The Buffs wrapped up the tour with a 2-3 record after forcing Rotterdam into 25 turnovers in front of a sparse crowd of 374 fans.

Freshman forward Josh Scott led Colorado in scoring with 19 points on 8-13 shooting and pulled down five rebounds. Forwards Andre Roberson (18 points, 12 rebounds) and Xavier Johnson (11 points, 10 rebounds) both secured double-doubles in the blowout victory.

The Buffs shot 41-87 (47%) as a team on the night, outpacing Rotterdam to secure a comfortable 57-34 halftime lead. Colorado outrebounded the Chargers 32-13 in the first half, as well.

Colorado is set to leave Europe on Wednesday morning and arrive in Denver late at night. The Buffaloes will open the 2012-13 basketball season on Friday, Nov. 9 at home against Wofford College.
