BOULDER, Colo. -- — McKinley Wright IV scored 10 of his 16 points in the final eight-plus minutes, Jeriah Horne hit 3 of 5 from 3-point range and finished with 15 points, and Colorado held on for a 70-58 win over Washington State on Wednesday night.
Wright made 11 of 11 from the free-throw line and finished with seven assists. Evan Battey added 14 points for Colorado (13-4, 7-3 Pac-12).
The Cougars (9-7, 2-7) went scoreless for nearly six minutes as Colorado scored 20 consecutive points — including seven by Horne — to take a 29-11 lead with eight minutes left in the first half.
TJ Bamba scored eight points in a 10-1 run early in the second half and WSU used a 9-0 run to trim its deficit to 49-43 with nine minutes to play, but D'Shawn Schwartz answered with a 3-pointer and the Cougars got no closer.
The Cougars, playing without senior Isaac Bonton — the team's leader in scoring (18.0), assists (3.8) and steals (2.0) due to illness — have lost six games in a row.
