Al­ford’s 37 pro­pel UCLA at Colorado

San Francisco Chronicle Late Edition - - PAGE 2 -

Bryce Al­ford scored a ca­reer­high 37 points, hit­ting nine of UCLA’s 19 three-point­ers, and the fourth-ranked Bru­ins beat host Colorado 104-89 on Thurs­day night.

It was the most three-point­ers for the Bru­ins (17-1, 4-1 Pac-12) this sea­son, sur­pass­ing the 18 they hit in the sea­son opener against Pa­cific.

Al­ford went 11-for-18 from the field, in­clud­ing 9-for-14 from three-point range. He was pushed farther and farther out by the Buf­faloes’ de­fense, but kept hit­ting deeper and deeper shots.

Xavier John­son had 21 points for the Buf­faloes (10-7, 0-4), who have dropped four straight to open con­fer­ence play for the first time since 2008-09, when they were in the Big 12.
