Rirjeswv088rqyietmnr
FRESNO, Calif. - Andre Roberson scored 17 points and grabbed 20 rebounds as Colorado beat Fresno State 50-43 on Wednesday night for its first road win.
Askia Booker added 14 points and Josh Scott had 11 points and eight rebounds for the Buffaloes (8-2), who were coming off a 36-point loss at No. 9 Kansas.
Colorado nearly squandered a nine-point lead in the final 7:26, letting the Bulldogs get to within 45-43, before Roberson made consecutive free throws with 17.2 seconds left.
"If you look up winning ugly in the dictionary or look it up on YouTube, you might see this one," Buffaloes head coach Tad Boyle said during his post-game interview on KKZN radio. "You have to find a way to win when you don't play your best and we obviously didn't play our best but we found a way.
"Before the game we wanted to see progress in our defensive field-goal percentage and our rebounding and we were plus-seven on the boards and we held them to under 30 percent [shooting], our best defensive performance all season so that is progress."
Kevin Foster led Fresno State (5-5) with eight points and eight rebounds.
Additional notes:
It was Colorado's first true road victory of the season. The Buffaloes are 8-2 to start the season for the first time since the 2001-2002 season.
Boyle's squad held the Bulldogs to 26 less points than the Buffaloes' football squad yielded in a 69-14 loss to Fresno State this fall.
Roberson's 20 rebounds were a career-high. It was the first time since 2002 that a CU player had 20 rebounds in a game, and the first time in 51 years a Buffs player managed the feat in a road game.
