Colorado takes down Fort Lewis behind a big second half

The Buffaloes took care of the Skyhawks 95-71.

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

Yes, wins are always nice, but there wasn't a lot to be happy about in the Buffaloes 95-71 victory over Fort Lewis College on Wednesday night. In a weird scheduling circumstance that meant the game counted on the Buffs schedule but was only an exhibition for the Skyhawks, Colorado struggled defensively and only lead by two points after the first half before finally pulling away.

Josh Scott tied a season-high with 24 points and became the third player in team history to rack up 1,300 points, 700 rebounds and 100 blocks. Cliff Meely and David Harrison are the others. Scott had a double-double in the first half and finished with 15 rebounds.

Josh Fortune had 17 points and Tre'Shaun Fletcher added 13 for Colorado, which won its sixth in a row since the season-opening loss at Iowa State.

Joshua Blaylock led the Skyhawks with 13 points. Kofi Josephs added 11 points for Fort Lewis, a Division II school based in Durango, Colorado. The game was considered an exhibition for the Skyhawks.

While they ended up winning by 20+ points, this game showed that these Buffaloes have a lot to work on on the defensive side of the ball, starting this Sunday at Colorado State.
