Colorado vs. Georgia final score: Buffaloes roll at home

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

Josh Scott had a double-double to lead Colorado to a bounce-back win.

No. 21 Colorado bounced back from a close loss to Oklahoma State by beating SEC foe Georgia, 84-70, Saturday night at home.

It was the Buffaloes' 11th win in 12 tries since dropping their season opener to Baylor, while Georgia fell to 6-5 and snapped its five-game winning streak.

Colorado led almost wire to wire and opened up a 15-point lead near the end of the first half. The Buffaloes went into the locker room up 11.

Josh Scott had a double-double (14 points, 13 rebounds) and shot 8-of-8 from the line as one of five Colorado players in double figures. As a team, the Buffaloes were a perfect 26-for-26 from the foul line. Asika Booker shot 7-of-12 to give him 19 points.

Kenny Gaines and Nemanja Djurisic each had 12 points to lead Georgia on a combined 10-for-22 shooting performance.

It was Colorado's final tuneup before Pac-12 play begins on Jan. 2 against Oregon State, while Georgia continues a three-game road trip with a contest at George Washington on Jan. 3.
