COL BKB: Colorado 48, Oregon 47

Feb. 8, 2013 at 12:29 AM

EUGENE, Ore., Feb. 8 (UPI) -- Andre Roberson rebounded his own missed shot and scored on a layup with 26 seconds left Thursday to bring Colorado a 48-47 upset of No. 19 Oregon.

The Ducks took a seven-point lead on Carlos Emory's dunk with 4:31 to play and they did not score again. They missed five shots and turned the ball over four times while collapsing down the stretch.

Oregon won its first seven Pacific-12 Conference games this season, but has now lost three in a row to Stanford, California and the Buffaloes.

Roberson had a layup attempt blocked by Arsalan Kazemi with time running down, but grabbed the rebound and laid it in to put Colorado in front. Oregon's E.J. Singler missed a turnaround jumper with 4 seconds remaining.

Roberson, with 10 points, was the only Colorado player in double figures during the defensive struggle. Oregon scored just 19 second-half points, both sides shot 36 percent from the field and the teams combined to make 7-of-27 shots from 3-point range.

The Buffaloes improved to 15-7 and are 5-5 in Pac-12 play. Singler and Emory both scored 14 points for the Ducks (18-5, 7-3).
