Recap: Colorado vs. Colorado State

Boulder, CO (Sports Network) - Spencer Dinwiddie erupted for a game-high 29 points as the Colorado Buffaloes posted a 70-61 win over the Colorado State Rams in non-conference play at the Coors Events Center.

Dinwiddie finished the meeting 8-of-10 from the floor, including 5-of-7 behind the three-point line for the Buffaloes (7-1) as they rebounded from their first loss of the season. Also having a strong game for the hosts was Andre Roberson who recorded a double-double with 15 points and 14 rebounds.

The Rams (6-1) were led by Colton Iverson with 19 points and 14 boards, followed by Dorian Green with 18 points in the first loss of the campaign.
