BOULDER, Colo. (AP) -- Askia Booker led seven Colorado players in double figures with 15 points and the Buffaloes pulled away in the second half for a 94-70 victory over Jackson State on Saturday in the first meeting between the schools.

Up by 11 at halftime, the Buffaloes opened the second half with 10-4 burst that extended their lead to 56-39.
