Colorado 71, San Diego 53

BOULDER, Colo. - D'Shawn Schwartz scored 13 of his 15 points in the second half, helping No. 25 Colorado run past scrappy San Diego 71-53 on Saturday night, coach Tad Boyle's 10th winner in 10 home openers.

Tyler Bey added 14 points and two impressive blocked shots on Braun Hartfield, one a thunderous rejection and the other a swipe and steal that was equally athletic.

Lucas Siewert and McKinley Wight IV each chipped in 11 points for the Buffaloes (2-0), who avenged losses to the Toreros (2-3), of the West Coast Conference, in each of the last seasons.

Colorado's superior depth wore down the Tereros, who were playing for the third time in five nights, and the Buffs used an 18-0 run to turn a tight 46-42 game into a blowout.

The Tereros, who had to replace four graduating seniors from a team that advanced to the NIT for the first time in program history, got 10 points each from Noel Coleman and Joey Calcaterra.

San Diego trailed 30-27 at halftime but Marion Humphrey picked up his second and third fouls within 30 seconds and took a seat, and the Buffs were in the bonus with 14:21 remaining.

Schwartz sank four free throws and a 3-pointer to put Colorado ahead 46-37.

Humphrey, the son of former Denver Broncos running back Bobby Humphrey, finished with just four points, six below his average and equal to the number of personal fouls he committed.
