The Buffaloes crafted a 14-point lead in the first few minutes of the second half but Stanford was able to get the deficit below 10 several times.

Williams followed a layup by Daejon Davis with two of his own to get the Cardinal within 44-36 and forced Colorado to call a timeout. The teams traded layups and Eli Parquet hit a 3-pointer to make it an 11-point game.

Williams and Battey each had a three-point play, and two free throws by da Silva got Stanford within 56-48 with 12:49 left but the Buffaloes pulled away.

Walker scored off of an offensive rebound, Wright hit a floater in the lane and Walker made a layup off a fast break to put Colorado ahead 62-48. Delaire scored for the Cardinal but the Buffaloes went on a 10-0 run to lead 72-50 with 4:16 remaining.

Colorado led by one with 6:21 left in the first half when it went on a game-changing run.

Wright scored on a layup and then fed Maddox Daniels for a 3-pointer before the media timeout. After more than two minutes with neither team scoring, Daniels and Tristan da Silva drained 3-pointers in the final 52 seconds to give the Buffaloes a 40-26 lead at the intermission.
