The Colorado Buffaloes followed up a big road win over Auburn with a dominant second half against Portland in the home opener to lead to a 85-63 win. Four Buffaloes finished in double digits, with George King scoring 18 points, Tre'shaun Fletcher and Josh Fortune putting up 17, and Josh Scott finishing with 13 on 5-for-6 shooting. Fortune added 14 rebounds and six assists and Fletcher played one of his best games in a Colorado uniform.

For Portland, D'Marques Tyson had 12 points, all 3's. No other Pilots player scored in double figures.

After a first half that saw the score see-saw between a small spread and a single-digit lead the Buffaloes pulled away with a 43-28 second half. Thomas Akyazili even came on late in the game and looked very confident and in control for a freshman, finishing with five points and two assists.

Up next for the Buffaloes is Omaha at home on Sunday.
