CORVALLIS, Ore. -- The Buffs were partying like it was 1955 on Sunday night in the visitors locker at Gill Coliseum.

Colorado followed up its 48-47 victory at No. 19 Oregon with a 72-68 comeback win over Oregon State.

It was the program's first wins in Eugene and Corvallis since H.B. Lee's Buffs opened the 1955-56 season with road victories over Oregon State (63-53 on Dec. 3, 1955) and Oregon (68-49 on Dec. 5, 1955).

"I think it's a major accomplishment for this program, first time in the Pac-12," Andre Roberson said of CU's first two-game road sweep in its new conference. "To do it against two good teams is a great accomplishment for this team."

CU finished 11-10 overall and 7-5 in the Big Seven Conference 58 years ago. The Buffs' 75-67 victory over Kansas in Boulder on March 3, 1956, was the final game for Lee and legendary Jayhawks coach Dr. Forrest "Phog" Allen.

Coincidentally, Boyle (64 wins) entered Sunday's game tied with Lee for seventh place on CU's all-time wins list. Lee was 63-74 in six seasons (1950-56).

Roberson milestone

Roberson grabbed 10 rebounds and moved into third place on the CU all-time list with 965, passing Shaun Vandiver (962, 1988-91).

The 6-7 junior is six boards away from tying Cliff Meely (1968-71, 971).

Roberson also had a career-high five steals, including one when the game was tied 63-63 that led to a slam dunk by Xavier Johnson to give CU the lead for good.


Roberson now has 147 steals for his career and passed Randy Robinson (143, 1988-93) for second in program history behind Jay Humphries (309, 1980-84).

Series update

CU leads 7-3 with a 2-3 record in Corvallis. The Buffs, who are 6-0 against Oregon State in Boulder, host the Beavers in the regular-season finale on March 9 at the Coors Events Center.
