BOULDER, Colo. -- Chasson Randle scored 20 points and led Stanford to a 74-50 rout of cold-shooting Colorado on Thursday night, handing the Buffaloes their first home loss in Pac-12 play.The Cardinal (19-9, 9-7) swept the season series against the Buffaloes, whom they beat 84-64 in Palo Alto, Calif., before losing six of nine.
It was Randle's third 20-plus-point performance of the year, and his second in Stanford's last three games.
The Buffs (18-9, 10-5) had gone 7-2 since that blowout and were the only unbeaten team at home (7-0) in Pac-12 play. But they were embarrassed before a sellout crowd that streamed to the exits midway through the second half.The Cardinal, who also got 11 points from John Gage, held the Buffs to 29 percent shooting, outrebounded them 50-26 and led by as many as 29 points early in the second half.
The 50 rebounds are the most by Stanford in regulation since 2008.
Askia Booker led the Buffaloes with 12 points, and Andre Roberson had 11 boards and nine points but missed eight off 11 free throws.
