BOULDER, Colo. -- Cory Higgins scored 15 of his 18 points in the second half as Colorado outgunned Longwood 104-59 on Sunday.
The five-game winning streak is the longest since the 2005-06 campaign. The Buffaloes are 7-0 at home and have won 19 straight nonconference home games.
Longwood played without guard Durann Neil, who suffered a hamstring injury in Friday's loss at New Mexico.
Colorado State graduate transfer John Gillon has chosen Syracuse, giving the Orange a potential starter at point guard entering the 2016-17 season.
DeSean Murray, who averaged 20.2 points as a sophomore at Presbyterian, will transfer to Auburn to play for coach Bruce Pearl.
Former Kentucky guard Ed Davender, the only Wildcat with at least 1,500 points and 400 assists, has died. He was 49.
