Huskies Get Blown Out in Boulder
Xavier Johnson scored a career-high 27 points, tops among three Colorado players with at least 20 points, as the Buffaloes routed Washington 91-65 last night.
Josh Scott tied his career best with 21 points and Askia Booker added 20, giving Colorado (18-6, 7-4 Pac-12) its first trio of 20-point scorers in the same game since Feb. 3, 2007.
The win was the third straight for Colorado and avenged a 71-54 loss at Washington on Jan. 12 in which the Buffaloes lost star point guard Spencer Dinwiddie to a season-ending knee injury.
C.J. Wilcox, the Pac 12's second leading scorer, was off target and finished with just eight points, on 2-of-10 shooting, including 0 for 7 from 3-point range.
It was the third consecutive loss for Washington (13-11, 5-6), which was led by Nigel Williams-Goss with 15 points.
