Arizona State pulls away to beat Colorado 65-56By BOB BAUM, AP Sports Writer Sunday, Jan 6, 2013
TEMPE, Ariz. (AP)—Carrick Felix scored 20 points, Jordan Bachynski had 16 points and nine blocked shots, and Arizona State pulled away from cold-shooting Colorado down the stretch to beat the Buffaloes 65-56 on Sunday night.
Jonathan Gilling added 12 points and 10 rebounds for the Sun Devils (13-2, 2-0 Pac-12), who started their conference season 2-0 for the first time in five years.
Spencer Dinwiddie led the Buffaloes with 19 points. Askia Booker added 13.
Colorado (10-4, 0-2) led 20-7 early and 33-30 at the half but fell apart over an eight-minute second-half stretch three nights after they appeared to have beaten No. 3 Arizona on Sabatino Chen’s 3-point bank shot at the buzzer, only to have officials wave off the basket after a video review. The call has been second-guessed across the country.
