Buffs best Sun Devils by 14

TEMPE, Ariz. - Spencer Dinwiddie and the Colorado Buffaloes were going to enjoy a rare happy flight home.

Dinwiddie scored all of his 15 points in the second half and Colorado routed Arizona State 63-49 on Saturday, the Buffaloes' second conference road win.

"The ride home after a win is great," Dinwiddie said. "When we lose, the coaches don't talk to you and it's just quiet. This is going to be a fun ride after this win."

Andre Roberson and Austin Dufault added 12 points apiece for the Buffaloes (17-8, 9-4 Pac 12), who won their third straight game against the Sun Devils (8-17, 4-9) and have won three of four overall.

Jonathan Gilling scored 11 points and Trent Lockett added 10 for Arizona State, which has lost three of four and eight of its last 11.

Gilling hit a 3-pointer and Ruslan Pateev added a layup as the Sun Devils trimmed a seven-point halftime deficit to 31-26 with 17:34 remaining.

But Dinwiddie hit the second of his three 3-pointers and Nate Tomlinson added a 3-pointer over the Sun Devils' zone defense to spark an 8-0 run that gave Colorado a 39-26 lead with 14:45 remaining.

The Buffaloes led by as many as 19 in the second half.

"We really wanted to play inside-out against that zone and show some patience," said Colorado coach Tad Boyle. "I think we did a good job of that."

Arizona State slowed the tempo early in a choppy first half and rode Gilling's eight points to a 17-13 lead with 6:57 left before halftime.

Then the Buffaloes started to click offensively, outscoring the Sun Devils 15-4 over the remainder of the half including a 7-0 run to close the first.

"We started to get really open," Dinwiddie said.

Colorado held the Sun Devils to 34.8 percent shooting in the first half and forced 12 turnovers en route to 18 turnovers for the game.

"You can make this as complicated and analytical as you want, look at a lot of different things and turn it upside down and turn it all around," said Arizona State coach Herb Sendek. "This was a microcosm of the entire season. We turn the ball over too much."

The Buffaloes finished shooting 45.7 percent for the game to Arizona State's 35.8 percent.
