Colorado 76, Loyola Marymount 64

BOULDER, Colo.- D'Shawn Schwartz had a season-high 16 points, including a tiebreaking 3-pointer late, and No. 20 Colorado withstood an upset scare in a 76-64 win over Loyola Marymount.

McKinley Wright IV also scored 16 points and Tyler Bey had 13 points and eight rebounds for the Buffaloes (7-0), who overcame 18 turnovers and a big performance from Lions junior Eli Scott to remain unbeaten.

Scott finished with a career-high 31 points and grabbed 10 rebounds for his second double-double of the season.

The Lions came close to pulling off a surprise but went cold down the stretch. Scott's layup with 4:17 left tied it at 61, but Loyola Marymount didn't make another field goal until Scott's dunk with eight seconds left. They missed nine straight shots from the field and three of four free throws.

Loyola Marymount led by four at halftime and built a 43-34 advantage on a 3 by Scott early in the second half. Colorado rallied to get to 49-47 behind a trio of 3-pointers.

The Buffaloes took the lead on a 3, and the teams were tied at 59 when Wright hit a jumper from the wing. Scott tied it on a layup with 4:17 to go.

Schwartz hit his 3-pointer from the corner with 2:41 left and the Buffaloes used strong defense and hit 16 of their last 18 free throws to seal it.
