BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - Freshman Aaron Gordon scored 21 of his season-best 23 points in the second half and Nick Johnson added 20 points as fourth-ranked Arizona won at Colorado for the first time since 1973, routing the Buffaloes 88-61 Saturday night.

It was a rare breather for the Wildcats (25-2, 12-2 Pac-12), who scrapped their way through a series of close games since beating Colorado by 12 in Tempe, Ariz., on Jan. 23. They since had a two-point loss at Cal and a three-point loss in double-overtime at archrival Arizona State.

The Wildcats needed overtime to win at Utah in their previous game and they led this one by just four points early in the second half before running away with it.

Coming off an emotionally draining win over the Sun Devils on Wednesday night that burnished their NCAA tournament credentials, the Buffaloes (20-8, 9-6) came out ice cold, missing their first 14 shots.
