Colorado 74, Wofford 59

BOULDER, Colo. - Freshman Josh Scott scored 14 points in his first game for Colorado, leading the Buffaloes to a 74-59 victory over Wofford on Friday night in the season opener for both teams.
Askia Booker and Spencer Dinwiddie added 13 points apiece for the Buffaloes, who improved to 30-3 in home openers at the Coors Events Center, including a string of five straight. The school unveiled a banner before the game commemorating last season's Pac-12 tournament championship, when the Buffaloes won four games in four days to advance to the NCAA tournament for the first time in nine years.
Karl Cochran scored 22 points to lead Wofford, playing the first of seven straight games away from home to start the season. Spencer Collins added 16 points for the Terriers, who began the season with seven freshmen on their roster.
Trailing by 11 at the break, Wofford opened the second half with a 3-pointer by Cochran. But Colorado responded with a 13-2 burst that Dinwiddie ignited with a breakaway dunk off a steal.
Scott converted a three-point play and Sabatino Chen drained a fadeaway jumper around Wofford's only points in that span, a jumper by Cochran as Colorado pulled away to a 47-26 lead with 15:01 left to play.
Wofford could not threaten the rest of the way.
Colorado led 34-23 at halftime, regaining a double-digit advantage in the last 1:08 of the period when Eli Stalzer scored on a goal-tended basket and Booker connected on a jumper.
