Buffs take number 1 Kansas to overtime

BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - Marcus Morris scored six of his 15 points in overtime and grabbed a key rebound that helped top-ranked Kansas avoid what would have been the season's biggest upset with a 72-66 victory over Colorado on Wednesday night.


Cole Aldrich recorded his fourth straight double-double with 16 points and 14 rebounds and he blocked five shots to help the Jayhawks (21-1, 7-0 Big 12) beat the Buffaloes (11-11, 2-6) for the 14th straight time.


The Buffs have never beaten a top-ranked team in 13 tries, including six against Kansas.


The No. 1 team has lost each of the last two weeks, Texas and Kentucky.


Marcus Relphorde's two free throws with 56 seconds left in regulation gave the Buffaloes their first - and only - lead at 60-59, but Sherron Collins made one of two free throws to tie it with 38 seconds left.
