The Buffaloes were close but no cigar on Thursday as they fell 61-58 to the Southern California Trojans. One thing holding Colorado back was the mediocre play of guard Keeshawn Barthelemy, who did not have his best game: he finished with only nine points on 3-for-11 shooting in his 26 minutes on the court.
Meanwhile, even if it wasn’t a dominant performance, UCLA beat the Utah Utes 63-58 on Thursday. Guard Johnny Juzang took over for UCLA, finishing with 28 points (a whopping 44% of their total).
