Colorado starts fast, rolls past Pepperdine 91-66

Tristan da Silva scored 22 points and made all 10 of his foul shots, Cody Williams had 21 points, and Colorado bounced back from a loss at Colorado State to defeat visiting Pepperdine 91-66 on Sunday at Boulder, Colo.

KJ Simpson had 15 points, Julian Hammond III added 10 points and Eddie Lampkin pulled down 10 rebounds for Colorado (6-2), which has won all five of its home games.

Houston Mallette scored 15 points, Michael Ajayi contributed 13 and Nils Cooper had 10 for Pepperdine (4-6).

The Waves were close in the first six minutes, trailing by just five before Colorado began to build a big lead.

Hammond hit a 3-pointer and a layup off a turnover to quickly put the Buffaloes ahead 22-12 and prompt a Pepperdine timeout, but it didn’t stop the surge.

Another turnover led to a layup by Williams, Hammond fed Williams for an alley-oop and Hammond made another layup before Cooper’s jumper broke the 11-0 Colorado run as the Buffaloes led 28-14.

Malik Moore hit two free throws to make it 30-16 midway through the first half but Williams had another layup, Hadley converted a three-point play and da Silva sank a pair of foul shots to give the Buffaloes a 40-18 lead.

Moore stopped the run with a jumper but da Silva scored four straight points, O’Brien made a layup followed by a 3-pointer from da Silva that increased the lead to 49-20 with 2:14 left in the first.

The Waves cut into the lead with an 8-3 run to get within 52-28 at intermission.

Colorado put it away early in the second half. Williams hit a 3-pointer just six seconds out of halftime, Simpson hit another from deep, Williams made another layup and da Silva drained a pair of free throws after a Pepperdine turnover to cap 10 straight points with 18:03 remaining and give the Buffaloes a 64-30 lead, their biggest of the game.

The Waves outscored Colorado 13-5 to cut the deficit to 26 but never threatened to make it close the rest of the way.
