BOULDER, Colo. (AP) Tristan da Silva scored 20 points and reserve J'Vonne Hadley scored 12 shooting 5 for 6 and Colorado held off Yale in the final seconds for a 65-62 win on Sunday.
John Poulakidas made a 3-pointer, and Bez Mbeng followed with a layup and Yale reduced its deficit to 61-60 with 1:05 left. After Colorado's Jalen Gabbidon - formerly of Yale - missed a short shot with 30 seconds to go, Mbeng threw the ball out of bounds on a miscommunication and the Buffaloes (4-3) took possession.
Following a Yale timeout, Colorado's Julian Hammond III made two foul shots with nine seconds left for a three-point lead. After another Yale (6-1) timeout, Gabbidon stole Mbeng's inbounds pass, got fouled and made two foul shots to seal it with five seconds left.
