BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - Josh Scott scored a season-high 26 points and Colorado overcame his two late turnovers to beat No. 9 Arizona 75-72 on Wednesday night.
George King added 14 points and Josh Fortune had 13 for Colorado (20-9, 9-7 Pac-12), which snapped a six-game losing streak to Arizona (22-6, 10-5) while securing its ninth 20-win season and fifth in six years.
Ryan Anderson had 19 points to lead Arizona, which had its six-game winning streak snapped. Allonzo Trier added 15 points.
Colorado had the 75-72 edge with 26 seconds left when Scott lost the ball driving in traffic. Arizona turned the ball back over, but then with 9 seconds left, Scott was called for traveling under defensive pressure.
Trier tried a 3-pointer at the buzzer but hit the back of the rim and missed.
