Xavier Johnson chipped in 14 points on 5-of-7 shooting off the bench for Colorado (12-6, 2-4 Pac-12), while Josh Scott scored 11 points. Andre Roberson grabbed seven rebounds as the Buffaloes ended their brief two-game losing streak.

Brock Motum and Mike Ladd tallied 13 points apiece for WSU (10-8, 1-4) as it fell for the fourth time in five games.
