Colorado pulls away for win over Arkansas State

BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - Josh Scott scored 20 points and Spencer Dinwiddie added 13, helping Colorado pull away late from Arkansas State for a 93-70 win on Monday night.

The Buffs (4-1) played their second game without injured forward Xavier Johnson, but freshman George King picked up the slack by scoring 11 points as a reserve off the bench. He entered the game with three points all season.

Jaron Hopkins contributed 10 as Colorado improved to 48-7 at home under coach Tad Boyle, including 13-0 in November.
