BOULDER, CO – The last time Colorado beat Kansas at storied Allen Fieldhouse, Buffaloes 56-year-old head coach Tad Boyle was playing for the Jayhawks. Boyle's Buffs are off to their first 7-0 start since 1982-83, which is the last time Colorado won in Lawrence, 75-74 on Feb. 10 of that season.

Holding leading scorer Tyler Bey scoreless from the field through the first half, Kansas used a 9-0 run to build a 19-9 lead. Colorado (7-1) shot 26.9% from the field in the first half and that allowed the Jayhawks to take a 34-22 lead at halftime.

With Bey and D'Shawn Schwartz quieted, Evan Battey lead the way for the Buffaloes, scoring 14 points on a 5-for-8 shooting.

Schwartz picked up a technical foul on a dunk that temporarily quieted the raucous Kansas crowd, and Agbaji knocked down four 3-point baskets in the second half to keep the Buffaloes at a distance.

Colorado forced 21 Kansas turnovers, but the Jayhawks shot 52.9% to outlast the Buffaloes.

BIG PICTURE
