TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -- Jahii Carson had 18 points and Jonathan Gilling added 12, leading Arizona State to a 72-51 rout over Colorado Saturday night.

Arizona State (15-5, 4-3 Pac-12) picked up a big win over Utah in its last game and rolled past Colorado after struggling with turnovers early. The Sun Devils led by 11 in the first half and turned it into a blowout in the opening minutes of the second behind a barrage of 3-pointers.

Gilling hit all four of his 3-point attempts and Carson became the second player -- with Bobby Lazor in 1997-99 -- to eclipse 1,000 career points in his first two years.

After playing top-ranked Arizona relatively close Thursday night, Colorado (15-6, 4-4) labored on offense, plagued by turnovers in the first half and poor perimeter shooting all night.

Xavier Johnson had 12 points and Josh Scott added 11 for the Buffaloes.
