The Colorado Buffaloes have served notice: It won't be easy for a Pac-12 team to beat them in Boulder.

For the first time in their history, the Buffs beat a top 15 team in back-to-back games, defeating #14 Arizona 80-77 Saturday at the Coors Event Center.

The win came two days after the Buffs upset 4th-ranked Arizona State.

The Buffs bolted out to a 45-29 lead at halftime and hung on down the stretch to even their conference record at 2-2. CU is 10-6 overall.

Arizona falls to 12-4, 2-1 in league.

McKinley Wright IV and Namon Wright each scored 19 points for the Buffs. George King had 18 points and nine rebounds. Dominique Collier scored 11 points and added six assists.
