Alec Burks came off his 29-point, 15 rebound performance against Iowa State to register 24 points and six boards, but it was Cory Higgins who led the Buffs in a 28-point effort. Andre Roberson played huge, grabbing 14 rebounds, helping the Buffs outrebound the bigger Wildcats 33-27.
CU, who was down two at half, used 50 second half points to put away the streaking Wildcats. K-State had won six in a row heading into today's game, with their last loss coming in to the Buffs in Boulder.
CU used hot shooting, going 29-50 (58 percent) from the field while hitting six of nine three point attempts. K-State shot a pedestrian 42.4 percent from the floor and was 7-23 from behind the arc.
Much to the disappointment of the Kansas City crowd, there won't be an intrastate match-up in the Final Four of the Big 12 Tournament. Instead, CU will take on the Kansas Jayhawks at 6:00 p.m. Friday at the Sprint Center.
