Buffs Battle Past Grand Canyon

LAS VEGAS — Tad Boyle's Colorado Buffaloes used a late surge Tuesday night to propel themselves past Grand Canyon, 74-64, at T-Mobile Arena.

The Buffs improved to 6-1 while the Lopes fell to 4-3.

McKinley Wright IV led the Buffaloes in scoring with 21 points as well as assists with seven. Evan Battey notched 16 points and Jeriah Horne added 12 off the bench.

While Colorado led for most of the game, the Buffs could not put GCU away until the final minutes. After GCU cut Colorado's lead one point with 5:17 left in the contest, the Buffs used a 10-0 surge to take a 70-59 lead and then kept the Lopes at bay down the stretch.
