It took another hero shot from an opponent, but Kansas University's No. 6-ranked men's basketball team, playing its first road game of the season, lost for the second time in three games, 75-72, at Colorado Saturday afternoon.
Buffaloes guard Askia Booker drained a running three-pointer from the left wing just as time expired to snap CU's 19-game losing streak to the Jayhawks.
"It felt great," Booker said of the shot, in a post-game ESPN interview, while CU fans wildly celebrated feet away from him on the court.
Two games ago, it was Villanova guard Ryan Arcidiacono, who beat KU (6-2) with a late-game three-pointer, but Colorado (9-1) did much more damage in the paint and at the free-throw line against Kansas to pull off the upset.
Buffs guard Spencer Dinwidie went 8-for-10 at the foul line and Colorado made 22 of its 37 free-throw tries, getting to the line 17 more times than Kansas.
KU freshman Andrew Wiggins scored 17 of his game-high 22 points in the second half in a losing effort.
Jayhawks sophomore forward Perry Ellis (10 points, eight rebounds) drove in for a game-tying layup with four seconds left before Booker won the game at the buzzer.
Kansas has another difficult road test on Tuesday, at No. 15 Florida.
