Colorado beats No. 19 Oregon 48-47
COLORADO 48, OREGON 47

EUGENE, Ore. (AP) -- Andre Roberson gave Colorado the second
chance it was looking for and turned it into the game-winning
basket in a victory the Buffaloes desperately needed.



Roberson scored off his own miss with 29 seconds left and
Colorado scored the final eight points of the game to upset No.
19 Oregon 48-47 on Thursday night.



Roberson finished with 10 points and 13 rebounds for the
Buffaloes (15-7, 5-5 Pac-12), who trailed 47-40 with just under
4 minutes to play when they rallied for their lowest-scoring
victory of the season.



"We're just trying to get back on track, trying to get where we
want to be," Roberson said. "This was one step forward."



Carlos Emory and E.J. Singler scored 14 points each to lead the
Ducks (18-5, 7-3), whose third consecutive loss snapped a
20-game home winning streak.



Oregon was without starting point guard Dominic Artis for the
fourth straight game. The freshman is recovering from an
undisclosed foot injury and the Ducks are 1-3 without him.



Singler had a chance to win it for Oregon but his long jumper
was tipped by Spencer Dinwiddie and fell into Roberson's hands
under the basket with 1.1 seconds left.



"Huge win" said Colorado coach Tad Boyle, whose team was coming
off a 58-56 loss to lowly Utah, the Buffaloes' only blemish in
their last five games. "That was a head-scratcher. But when
we're dialed in, we're pretty good."



They were certainly that against Oregon late in the game.



The Ducks led 28-23 at halftime and never trailed until
Roberson's last basket on a possession set up by an offensive
foul called on Singler at the other end, Oregon's fourth
straight turnover.



Roberson took a pass from Dinwiddie under the basket but had his
first attempt blocked from behind by Arsalan Kazemi, who had six
points and 11 rebounds.



"Go get it, go get it," Roberson said he told himself. "If you
want to win this game, put it all on the line."



He got it, and went back up for the basket.



"Andre can get it to the rim awfully quick," Boyle said.



Colorado had 17 second-chance points, including two more by
Roberson with 2:12 to play that made it 47-46.



"Dominic spreads the floor," Oregon coach Dana Altman said. "The
floor has shrunk and it's been hard to drive to the hoop."



Dinwiddie scored seven of the Buffaloes' first 10 points in the
second half as they cut their halftime deficit to 35-33 with
14:19 to play.



Ben Carter answered for Oregon with a jumper from the baseline
and Emory followed with two free throws on the Ducks' first trip
to the foul line and extended the lead to 39-33 with 11:02 to
go.



Oregon's lead grew to 47-40 on a dunk by Emory with 4:26 to
play. But those were the Ducks' final points as they went 0 for
3 from the field the rest of the way.



"I definitely sensed a little panic when we started making a
little comeback," Roberson said. "You could definitely sense
they were feeling pressure to score the ball."



Oregon shot 36.2 percent from the field and had seven of its 12
turnovers over the final 7:39.



Colorado had 12 turnovers and shot 36.5 percent, but the
Buffaloes got hot at the end of the game, going 3 for 5 from the
field over the final 4 minutes.



"I'm more disappointed with our defense than our offense,"
Altman said. "We didn't get stops and gave up too many
second-chance points."



The Ducks broke an early tie with a 10-2 run to take a 15-7 lead
by the 10:58 mark of the first half. Emory had four points
during that stretch while Colorado's only points came off a
monster two-handed slam of a rebound by Roberson over Kazemi.



Kazemi got his revenge on the Ducks' ensuing possession,
spinning to the basket for a one-handed dunk off a rebound. The
typically subdued Kazemi then flexed his biceps as the Oregon
student section erupted.
