BOULDER, Colo. -- Cory Higgins scored 14 of his 18 points in the second half, and Colorado withstood a late rally to beat Oklahoma 77-67 on Wednesday night.
The loss was Oklahoma's third straight and fourth in five games. The Sooners were outshot 50 percent to 43.6 percent in losing for the fourth straight time in Colorado.

Former Kentucky guard Ed Davender, the only Wildcat with at least 1,500 points and 400 assists, has died. He was 49.
Guard Naz Mitrou-Long, whose 2015-16 season ended in December due to hip problems, has been granted a hardship waiver for the coming season, Iowa State said.
As the Sooners look to life without superstar Buddy Hield and his sidekicks, it's clear their unseasoned players will need to grow up fast.
