BOULDER, Colo. — Tyler Bey scored a career-high 26 points, Shane Gatling had 17 and the Colorado Buffaloes routed short-handed Washington State 92-60 Thursday night for its first conference win of the season.
Bey added 10 rebounds for his seventh career double-double. D’Shawn Schwartz added 16 points and McKinley Wright IV had 10 for Colorado (10-5, 1-2 Pac-12), which had opened conference play last week with losses at Arizona and Arizona State.
It was the fifth straight loss for Washington State, which was held to a season low in points and remained winless away from home this season, dropping to 0-7. Washington State (7-8, 0-2) also was without its leading scorer, Robert Franks Jr., who missed a fourth game due to a hip contusion.
Marvin Cannon had 14 points to lead the Cougars, who have yet to win in eight trips to Boulder. Jeff Pollard and Isaiah Wade added 12 points apiece.
