Aggies eke out victory over Colorado

BOULDER, Colo. —Nathan Walkup scored 18 points and B.J. Holmes added 13, including a three-pointer with 1.9 seconds remaining to send the game into overtime, as No. 22 Texas A&M rallied for a 73-70 victory over Colorado on Wednesday night.

The Aggies (18-5, 5-4 Big 12) snapped a three-game skid as coach Mark Turgeon face off against his longtime friend and former assistant Tad Boyle for the first time.

The biggest shot of the night belonged to Holmes, who stepped back and connected on a long three-pointer after the Aggies called timeout to set up a play.

Once in overtime, Texas A&M took control early, scoring the first six points. The Buffaloes (15-10, 4-6) worked their way back into the game, trailing 73-70 with 8 seconds remaining.

But Levi Knutson's shot at the buzzer came up short as the Buffs lost their eighth straight to Texas A&M.

Alec Burks led Colorado with 24 points and Cory Higgins added 19.
