Colorado 92, UW Huskies 69: Box score

Walton was 6-for-7 shooting and made all 10 free throws for Colorado (5-1) to notch the first 20-point game of his career and reached double figures for the third straight game.

Though both teams compete in the Pac-12 Conference, Sunday’s game did not count in conference standings.

Jeriah Horne added 16 points, D’Shawn Schwartz 13, Keeshawn Barthelmy and Maddox Daniels 10 each. The Buffs took a 52-30 lead at halftime, the most points in a first half since 57 against Northern Arizona in 2012.

Colorado shot 60% in the first half, finishing the game at 48%, making 29 of 60 field goals with 21 assists.

Riley Sorn led the Huskies with 16 points, Nate Pryor scored 15, Marcus Tsohonis added 14 and Quade Green 12. Washington (1-6) shot 43% (27 of 63).

Colorado put together an 11-1 run just past the halfway point of the second half, extending its lead to 36 points, 88-52.

This is a breakout season for Walton, who has scored 46 points in Colorado’s last 3 games. He scored 45 in 28 games last season.

Colorado faces Grand Canyon Tuesday in the Far West Classic. Washington meets San Francisco.
