Evan Gordon Buzzer Beater Lifts Arizona State Past Colorado In Overtime (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

BOULDER, Colo. (AP) — Evan Gordon's buzzer-beating layup in overtime lifted Arizona State past Colorado 63-62 Saturday night.

Gordon's game-winner came after Spencer Dinwiddie's bucket with 8.3 seconds left had given the Buffaloes a 62-61 lead. Gordon finished with 14 points.

Jahii Carson's 18 points led the Sun Devils (19-7, 8-5 Pac-12), which won for the first time in four tries in Boulder and swept the season series against the Buffaloes.

Dinwiddie led Colorado (17-8, 7-6) with 24 points and Askia Booker added 17 to break out of a four-game shooting slump.

The game was tied at 52 at the end of regulation following a furious rally by Colorado from a 54-48 deficit with 1:19 left. The Buffs tied the game on Xavier Johnson's dunk with 2.5 seconds left and Carrick Felix missed a potential game-winner at the buzzer.

It was just the sixth loss in 48 home games under Colorado coach Tad Boyle.
