The Colorado Buffaloes won its third consecutive Pac-12 men’s basketball game Sunday at Coors Events Center in Boulder, Colo., as they defeated the Stanford Cardinal 64-56.

Lucas Siewert led Colorado (15-10 overall, 7-6 Pac-12) with 17 points, which included two key 3-pointers in the closing minutes. George King and McKinley Wright scored 11 and 10 points, respectively, for the Buffs, who defeated the Cardinal for the ninth consecutive time.

Dorian Pickens topped the Stanford scoring column with 18 points, followed by Reid Travis with 10. The Cardinal evened their overall record at 13-13, 7-6 in league play.

Stanford trailed by 11 at halftime and gradually cut its deficit to 45-42 when Isaac White and Pickens hit consecutive 3s at 9:01 of the second half. Pickens connected on another 3-pointer to pull the Cardinal within one point at the 6:35 mark.

At that point, the Buffaloes forged a 12-3 run, punctuated by two Siewert 3-pointers and two baskets by Tyler Bey, allowing Colorado to build a 10-point lead with 1:07 to play.

Colorado built a 31-20 lead at the break with the help of four 3-pointers in the last 3:55 of the half.

It was a tough afternoon of shooting for the Cardinal, which made 35.7 percent of its field goal attempts. Three days earlier, Stanford made 35.8 percent of its shots at Utah. The Cardinal was 7-of-21 from 3-point range and 9-of-15 on free throws.

The Buffaloes outrebounded Stanford 42-38. King was the top rebounder for Colorado with nine, while Travis led the Cardinal with six.

Next Sunday, the Cardinal travels to Berkeley to face the Golden Bears.
