STANFORD, Calif. -- — McKinley Wright scored 14 points with nine rebounds and nine assists and Colorado held Stanford to a season low in scoring, beating the Cardinal 69-51 on Thursday night.
Eli Parquet added 10 points for the Buffaloes (16-5, 10-4 Pacific-12 Conference) while four other players added at least eight.
Oscar da Silva poured in a game-high 22 points with three blocked shots for Stanford (12-8, 8-6). It was da Silva's third straight 20-point game, and he was the only Cardinal in double figures. Spencer Jones added eight points for Stanford, which had previously scored a low of 56 points at Oregon on Jan. 2.
Colorado ended a streaky first half — each team went on extended scoring runs — with an 11-point lead and kept it through the first eight minutes of the second half.
Stanford came as close as 49-43 on a Jones 3-pointer before the Buffs broke away for good.
After the consecutive 3-pointers, Colorado's Evan Battey stole a Jones pass, which led to Horne's dunk on the fast break and a Stanford timeout. Stanford missed twice when play resumed and Battey added a hook shot to keep Colorado's streak going.
Wright scored back-to-back layups around a Daniels steal and Colorado cruised the last four minutes.
The Buffs continue their road swing with hopes of a season sweep at Cal on Saturday. Stanford plays host to Utah on Saturday, a rematch of January’s 14-point Utah victory.
