BOULDER, Colo. (AP) – Askia Booker and Xavier Johnson each scored 17 points and Colorado set its season high in points scored by routing Northern Arizona 98-51 on Friday night.

Spencer Dinwiddie had 15 points and Josh Scott added 11 for Colorado (9-2), which is off to its best start since opening 9-2 in 1994-95.

The Buffaloes remain unbeaten in four meetings with Northern Arizona (4-6), a member of the Big Sky conference which dropped to 0-3 against Pac-12 teams this season. The Lumberjacks were beaten by Oregon and Arizona earlier this season.
