CORVALLIS, Ore. — This time around, the Colorado Buffaloes took care of business down the stretch against Oregon State.
The Buffaloes built a nine-point by the half, expanded it to 20 with under eight minutes to play and then protected the cushion the rest of the way to collect a 69-47 win Saturday at Gill Coliseum.
The Buffs improved to 20-6 overall and 8-4 in Pac-12 play, and guaranteed themselves of at least a share of the conference lead heading into next week. The Beavers fell to 15-10, 5-8.
The victory also gave the Buffs their 11th 20-win season in program history, with CU coach Tad Boyle now owning seven of them in his 10 years in Boulder.
