SEATTLE — It took until Colorado nearly reached the finish line of its tenure in the Pac-12 Conference for the CU men’s basketball team to accomplish it hadn’t done since joining the league in 2011.
For the first time, the Buffaloes own a two-game, regular-season sweep of the Washington Huskies.
CU picked up its first road win of the season and managed to bid farewell to what has been a difficult venue in victorious fashion, defeating Washington 98-81 on Wednesday night at Alaska Airlines Arena.
The Buffs improved to just 2-9 in Seattle since joining the Pac-12 and posted their first road win against the Huskies since March 5, 2015.
Five players scored in double figures for the Buffs, who finished 26-for-28 at the free throw line. CU (15-5, 6-43 Pac-12) led 50-41 at halftime and blew the game open with a 10-0 run in the second half.
J’Vonne Hadley returned to the starting lineup after missing one game due to a sore knee and led a number of stellar individual performances for the Buffs, going 8-for-10 from the field and 7-for-8 at the free throw line while finishing with a CU career-high 22 points.
