Burks scores 25, Colorado beats Cal 89-72 in NIT

BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - Alec Burks scored 25 points, Cory Higgins had 22 and Colorado beat California 89-72 in the second round of the National Invitation Tournament on Friday night.

Colorado (23-13) set a school record for wins and advanced past the second round of the NIT for the first time since reaching the semifinals in 1991. The Buffaloes will play the winner of Sunday's
game between Fairfield and Kent State on Tuesday in Boulder.

Jorge Gutierrez had 16 points and Harper Kamp 14 for the Bears (18-15), who played without starting center Markhuri Sanders-Frison. Sanders-Frison, Cal's leading rebounder, dislocated
his right shoulder in practice on Tuesday. He was on the bench with his arm in a sling.
