STANFORD, Calif. -- Andre Roberson scored a career-high 24 points and helped spark an 18-2 second-half run to help Colorado beat Stanford 65-63 on Wednesday night.
Roberson, the leading rebounder in the country going into the night, had eight boards and finished 9 of 13 from the floor while helping the Buffaloes (19-8, 9-6 Pac-12) complete a season sweep of the Cardinal after five straight losses in the series between the two schools.
Powell nearly pushed the game into overtime after driving around Roberson and dunking the ball on the game's final play, but officials reviewed television replays and ruled that time expired before Powell's bucket.
