Washington Stays on Top in Pac-12, Beats Colorado 95-83
SEATTLE (AP) — Andrew Andrews scored 25 of his 33 points in the second half, Marquese Chriss added 17 points, and Washington stayed on top of the Pac-12 Conference standings with a 95-83 win over Colorado on Wednesday night.
The Huskies (13-5, 5-1) used a big first half run to take control and they built a large enough lead early in the second half to hold off Colorado's furious late charge.
Washington led by 14 at halftime and pushed it to 22 early in the second half as Andrews, the Pac-12 leader in scoring, got going. Colorado cut the lead to 10 with less than 4 minutes remaining and pulled within 87-80 on George King's basket with 1:32 left, but that was as close at the Buffaloes would get.
Dominique Collier led Colorado (14-5, 3-3) with a career-high 21 points.
