After several of CU's Pac-12 wins, the question posed to Tad Boyle was ‘how do you take this on the road?'
With the exception of Colorado's late January triple overtime victory over USC, the Buffs have had no answer for that question.
Boyle's answer has always been defense and rebounding, and that's how CU defeated Washington, 64-47.
CU held Washington to a measly 26% from the field in the first half, taking a 30-17 lead into halftime.
Josh Scott returned to form Thursday night, scoring 21 points, and grabbing nine boards. His 21 points is his most since a 23-point output against Hawai'i at the Diamond Head Classic.
The Colorado bench stepped up in a major way, as Xavier Johnson scored 11 points and Xavier Talton added 10 points.
Tre'shaun Fletcher returned home and had another solid night, with eight points and five boards.
CU currently sits in a tie for eighth place with California, with a sixth-place finish still possible.
The Buffs will wrap up the regular season on Saturday afternoon at Washington State.
