BOULDER, Colo. -- Carlon Brown scored 18 points and Colorado used balanced scoring to defeat Washington 87-69 on Thursday night.
Spencer Dinwiddie and Austin Dufault had 13 points each Colorado (10-4, 2-0 Pac-12), which had five players in double figures. Askia Booker added 12 and Nate Tomlinson 11 for the Buffaloes, who won their fifth straight.
Washington has dropped all three of its road games this season.
The Huskies made a minor dent in a 10-point halftime deficit when Ross made two layups in the first two minutes to cut the lead to 42-36. The Buffaloes regained a double-digit edge, 48-37, on a fast-break basket by Tomlinson and a free throw by Dinwiddie with 16:46 left, and Washington never threatened again.
