FINAL: Arizona falls to Colorado 77 - 80 in Boulder

"I'm gonna take all the responsibility".

"I did a bad job of having them ready". But we're not playing Drake or Mercer.

It's the second straight game in which the Buffaloes (10-6, 2-2 Pac-12) have knocked off a ranked team.

Combined with the Buffs' win Thursday night against No. 4 Arizona State, it is the first time since January 2011 that CU has defeated ranked opponents in consecutive games.

While Arizona's loss at Colorado was closer than those in the Bahamas, especially its 89-64 loss to Purdue, Miller said he found it similar to all of them. Even with the sizable lead, anyone who is familiar with the Arizona Basketball program knew the Buffs were not out of the woods just yet.

Dallas Walton was sandwiched near the center of a second court storming in less than 48 hours on the hardwood at the Coors Events Center, and when the mob finally relented, the Colorado Buffaloes' 7-foot freshman from Arvada West was the last player remaining on the court.

Arizona put up 13 threes in the the first half, compared to seven from Colorado.

UA's problems were rooted in some early defensive struggles that were obvious shortly after tipoff.

Arizona fell to 3-9 all-time in Boulder. Teammate and fellow future NBA Draft pick, Allonzo Trier entered Saturday's game second in the Pac-12 in scoring at just over 21 points per game.

Colorado went up by 20 in the first half only to see the Wildcats (12-4, 2-1) pull within three.

UA also left alone another light scorer, D'Shawn Schwartz, alone in the right corner and he hit a 3-pointer with 3:33 left in the first half to give the Buffs a 42-22 lead, their biggest of the game. What he did elaborate on was himself, his team, and the contrast to what the Buffs were doing. That's not them. That's me. "We have to make those decisions pretty quickly because if you get too far down the line, you're wasting a lot of time with a kid that's not going to end up at Colorado".

"The key with talented teams is that you want to keep them off balance", said Boyle, who celebrated his 55th birthday Saturday.

Miller was asked what he meant by that statement, so he elaborated some more. Because we turned the ball over twice in the first half and we turned it over 13 times in the second half, which allowed them to get out in transition.

"With our team, it's really hard to get our guys to run as fast as they can".

The Wildcats did come out of halftime with a strong effort, however. McKinley Wright posted his third double-double of the season with a team-leading 16 points and 10 assists, though his seven second-half turnovers opened the door for Arizona's rally. The Devils started the game on an 11-0 run, and held an 18-7 lead through the first eight minutes of the game. Rebounds - Arizona 31 (Ristic 11), Colorado 32 (King 11). Walton shot 5-for-5 from the floor and 1-for-1 from deep.
