COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) -- Josh Scott scored 16 points, Askia Booker had 13, and Colorado routed Air Force 81-57 Saturday for its seventh win in a row.

Scott also pulled down 13 rebounds, helping Colorado (7-1) dominate the boards, outrebounding Air Force 42-25. Xavier Johnson added 11 points for the Buffaloes.

Up by 10 at the break, Colorado stretched its lead to 51-30 by scoring 17 of the first 23 points opening the second half.

Booker hit his third 3-pointer of the game to open the flurry for the Buffaloes.

The Falcons responded with a layup by Justin Hammonds and a pair of free throws by Zach Moer, but couldn't make a dent in Colorado's lead.

By the time Dustin Thomas banked in a 15-foot jumper with 9:10 remaining, the Buffaloes had opened a 30-point lead and began to empty their bench.

Tre' Coggins scored 18 points to lead the Falcons (3-4).
