By  | 

BOULDER, Colo. (AP) -- Spencer Dinwiddie scored 12 of his 15 points in the second half, including four free throws down the stretch, and Askia Booker added 14, helping Colorado hold off Wyoming 63-58 on Wednesday night to halt a six-game skid against the Cowboys.

Josh Scott added 12 points and nine rebounds as the Buffaloes (2-1) beat the Cowboys (1-1) for the first time since 1996. Colorado was ranked last season heading into this game in Laramie, Wyo., only to lose and fall out of the top 25. The Buffaloes never made it back into the polls.

Dinwiddie came up big down the stretch, stealing a pass with 32 seconds remaining and hitting two free throws to seal the win.

Josh Adams had 15 points for the Cowboys and Larry Nance Jr. contributed 10 before fouling out of a game that featured 48 fouls.
