College basketball roundup: Colorado sinks No. 6 Kansas

Askia Booker grabbed an inbounds pass, dribbled twice, took two long steps, then drained a 3-pointer that gave Colorado a 75-72 victory over sixth-ranked Kansas on Saturday in Boulder, Colo.

It was the Buffaloes’ first win over the Jayhawks (6-2) in their last 20 tries — a stretch dating to 2003.


Colorado (9-1) squandered a 6-point lead over the final 1:44 — a comeback capped when Kansas forward Perry Ellis hit a shot to tie it at 72 with four seconds left.

Booker then sank his winning 30-footer after a timeout.
