(1090 The Fan) — Colorado avenged an earlier defeat to Washington with a dominating 91-65 victory at home, Sunday.
Xavier Johnson led three 20-point scorers for the Buffaloes with a game-high 27 points and grabbed 10 rebounds. Josh Scott finished with 21 points and eight rebounds and guard Askia Booker had 20 points and seven assists.
Washington (13-11, 5-6), meanwhile, was led by freshman point guard Nigel Williams-Goss who scored 15 points and delivered four assists. Leading-scorer and All-Pac-12 guard C.J. Wilcox was held to just eight points on 2-for-10 shooting from the field, including 0-for-7 from beyond the arc.
Colorado (18-6, 7-4) opened the game on a 20-4 run over the first 5:30 to take command. The team never looked back from there. The Huskies shot just 32 percent from the field and were out-rebounded by Colorado 44-30. The Buffaloes shot 55 percent and led by as many as 30 points in this one.
Washington’s 5-3 Pac-12 conference start is a distant memory now as the team has tumbled from fourth to a tie for seventh in the conference standings with its current 3-game losing streak.
The Huskies will look forward to returning home this week for two games against Stanford and Cal.
