No. 9 Arizona vs. Colorado final score: Buffaloes upset Wildcats, 71-58

Casey Sapio-USA TODAY Sports

Colorado routed Arizona on Thursday to get payback for the controversial ending of the previous meeting between the two schools.

Spencer Dinwiddie scored 21 points and dished out seven assists to help the Colorado Buffaloes to a 71-58 upset victory over the No. 9 Arizona Wildcats on Thursday evening at Coors Events Center in Boulder, Colo.

Askia Booker's three-pointer with 4:14 remaining in the first half kickstarted a 15-2 run that spanned seven minutes across both halves. By the time Arizona's Mark Lyons hit a three-pointer with 16:58 left in the game, the Buffaloes held a 38-26 advantage. The Wildcats never got closer than nine points the rest of the way en route to their fourth loss, a number that could have been larger.

Colorado (17-7, 7-5 Pac-12) nearly beat Arizona on the road earlier this season, but a questionable call from the officials at the end of regulation disallowed what would have been a game-winning shot, and the Buffaloes went on to lose in overtime.

Solomon Hill scored 12 points and grabbed seven rebounds for the Wildcats (20-4, 8-4 Pac-12) in the losing effort.
