GAME FLOW NOTES
   Colorado scored on its first nine possessions of the game (7-10 FT, 2-4 FT; 3 OFF REB) in building a 16-5 lead.
   Stanford didn't score until its sixth possession, but then scored on six of its next eight to cut a 9-0 CU lead down to 18-15; at that point, the Cardinal did not score on their next seven possessions (0-6 FG, 1 TO) and the Buffs built the lead back up to 11 (26-15).
   Stanford scored on 12 of 34 possessions in the first half, and 12 of 37 in the second; CU was 22 of 34 and 16 of 38.
   CU moved to a 54-36 lead early in the
   CU never trailed, its big lead was the final margin, 75-54; the 21-point win was the third largest by CU in a Pac-12 Conference game (bested by wins last year, 73-33 over Utah and 82-60 over Oregon State, both in Boulder).

QUICKLY Tonight's crowd of 11,212 was the second largest of the season; the Buffs have now drawn 92,765 in nine home games, or 10,307 per (second in the Pac-12 to Arizona, 13,843; UCLA is a third at 9,066) ... Game time was 1:52 ... Colorado did not commit its first turnover until there was 3:26 left in the first half (its 27th possession of the game); the Buffs finished with four in the half to tie four other games for a first-half low ... Stanford committed four turnovers on its first 14 possessions, but did not commit another the remainder of the half (20 possessions; its first turnover in the second half came on its sixth possession, so the Cardinal went 25 in a row without turning it over) ...

Colorado's 44-29 lead at halftime was its biggest of the year in Pac-12 play (fourth largest overall), with the 44 first half points the third most (and highest since leading Hartford 45-21 at the half) ... The Buffs were 5-of-5 on second chance shooting in the first half (missed their first in the second half) ...

The 24-14 edge CU held on the boards at halftime was a conference best in 2013 and the third largest advantage this season (+22, Hartford; +17, Air Force) ... The 48-30 edge (+18) for the game was the fourth best overall and easily a league game best (topped +4 last time out at Washington State) ... All five CU starters scored in double figures for the first time this year (on six occasions, four of the five had done it previously).

SERIES CU snapped a five-game losing streak to the Cardinal, who now lead the series 9-4 (CU leads 4-3 in Boulder); this was just the seventh game in the shot clock era (tanford leads, 5-2). 
   Colorado's 75 points were its second-most against Stanford and the most since an 89-79 win in Boulder on Dec. 23, 1990 (in fact, Colorado's 44 first half points were more than CU scored in four previous games in the series).
   Tad Boyle is now 1-2 against the Cardinal. He is now 61-32 in two-plus seasons at Colorado (and 40-5 in Boulder).
