PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) -- Spencer Dinwiddie scored 16 points and had eight rebounds as Colorado came up with a great defensive performance to beat Washington State 58-49 Saturday night.

Two freshmen contributed with double figures for the night as Xavier Johnson added 14 points and Josh Scott chipped in 11 as Colorado (12-6, 2-4 Pac-12) rebounded from a loss Wednesday night against Washington.

Colorado led 23-19 at halftime. The Cougars erased the deficit by going on a 12-4 run to start the second half, taking a 31-27 lead near the 15-minute mark. The teams traded baskets until 6:08 when Dinwiddie hit Colorado's only three of the night to take a 47-42 lead. Colorado would then go on a run to put the game out of reach at 54-46 with under a minute to play.

Brock Motum and Mike Ladd had 13 points apiece for Washington State (10-8, 1-4). Motum also had seven rebounds.
