BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - Nathan Walkup scored 18 points and B.J. Holmes added 13, including a 3-pointer with 1.9 seconds remaining to send the game into overtime, as No. 22 Texas A&M rallied for a 73-70 victory over Colorado on Wednesday night.
The Aggies (18-5, 5-4 Big 12) snapped a three-game skid.
The biggest shot of the night belonged to Holmes, who stepped back and connected on a long 3-pointer after the Aggies called timeout to set up a play.
Once in overtime, Texas A&M took control early, scoring the first six points. The Buffaloes (15-10, 4-6) worked their way back into the game, trailing 73-70 with 8 seconds remaining.
But Levi Knutson's shot at the buzzer came up short as the Buffs lost their eighth straight to Texas A&M.
