George King and Josh Fortune combined to hit 10 of Colorado’s 13 three-pointers to help the Buffaloes beat Stanford 91-75 Wednesday.
BOULDER, Colo. — Colorado big man and leading scorer Josh Scott was under the weather. On top of that, he was under constant watch.
Hardly a worry, though. Not with the way the Buffaloes were shooting from long range.
George King and Josh Fortune combined to hit 10 of Colorado’s 13 three-pointers to help the Buffaloes beat Stanford 91-75 Wednesday night.
King finished with 23 points and Fortune added a season-high 21 as Colorado (16-5, 5-3 Pac-12) knocked off Stanford (11-8, 4-4) for the sixth straight time.

“This team has a chance to be really, really good offensively if we continue to play like that,” Colorado coach Tad Boyle said. “We’ve got very capable shooters as you saw tonight.”
Scott just wasn’t his usual dominating self in the paint. At halftime, Boyle asked him if anything was wrong. Scott confessed that he wasn’t feeling all that great.
It didn’t show in his numbers as Scott still contributed 14 points and eight rebounds. More than anything, he was the reason the perimeter was so wide open, with Stanford congesting the lane to limit his production. Colorado was more accurate from three-point range (13 of 19) than from inside the line (14 of 36).
Stanford’s Rosco Allen tied a career high with 25 points.
At Utah 73, California 64
Jakob Poeltl had 21 points and nine rebounds to power Utah past California.
Brandon Taylor and Kyle Kuzma added 15 points apiece for the Utes (16-5, 5-3), who have won four straight games.
Jaylen Brown matched his career high with 27 points and Ivan Rabb had 12 points and 12 rebounds for the Bears (14-7, 4-4), who again struggled on the road — falling to 1-5 away from home.
