SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Richard Roby scored 22 points, and teammate Jermyl Jackson-Wilson made a free throw with 2.1 seconds remaining to lift Colorado to a 60-59 victory over Utah Tuesday night.
Jackson-Wilson missed his second of two free throws, and the Utes rebounded and called timeout with 1.8 seconds left. But Lawrence Borhas desperation three-pointer missed badly as time expired.
The victory was the first for the Buffaloes (2-2) after back-to-back blowout losses, while the Utes fell to a 0-3 start for the first time since 1970.
But the Utes committed two crucial turnover in the final minute, with the game tied 59-59.
The first came on a bad pass after Utah's Shaun Green drew a charging foul on Roby, and the second came when the Utes lost the ball on a fast break following a blocked shot by Nevill. Borha fouled Jackson-Wilson in the ensuing scramble to set up the winning free throws.
Kalvin Bay scored 11 points and Jackson-Wilson added 10 for the Buffaloes, who forced 17 turnovers and held the Utes to 43.6 percent shooting.
The Buffs led 26-22 at halftime.
The teams combined for 17 turnovers in the first half, and the Utes made 6-of-22 shots. Neither team led by more than six points.
