Boulder, Colo. • Southern Cal missed a slew of shots in the early going and No. 21 Colorado never gave the Trojans a chance to recover.
Josh Scott scored 20 points, Askia Booker had 13, and Colorado rebounded from its first home defeat to rout Southern Cal 83-62 on Saturday.
"We were getting every shot we wanted the first five minutes, we weren't making them, and we weren't getting stops on defenses which allowed them to push the lead up," said Southern Cal's Byron Wesley, who had nine points on 3-of-14 shooting from the field. "The first five minutes were the biggest part of the game, they were able to push the lead up to about 20 and we weren't able to bounce back."
