Buffs Defense Stifles Arizona State For Key Road Win

Tad Boyle‘s No. 20 Colorado Buffaloes backed that saying up Thursday night by throttling Arizona State in the second half to collect a 68-61 win over the Sun Devils at Desert Financial Arena.

Colorado improved to 14-3 overall and 3-1 in Pac-12 play while the Sun Devils fell to 10-7, 1-3. The victory ended a six-game losing streak for the Buffs on ASU’s home floor, as CU held Arizona State to just 34.3 percent shooting for the game (24-for-70), including just 12-for-40 in the decisive second half.

Colorado struggled on the offensive end early and trailed by nine just a few minutes into the game, but came back to tie it up, 28-28, by halftime. CU then took control early in the second half, using an 11-0 run to take a 44-32 lead with 10:35 remaining and the Sun Devils never came closer than five again.
