LAS VEGAS — CJ Ellerby scored 30 points and hit six 3-pointers, helping Washington State knock off Colorado 82-68 in the final Pac-12 tournament game with fans.
The Pac-12 followed suit of the NCAA and other major conferences by limiting the final three days of its tournament to essential personnel only.
With a few thousand fans in the stands, the 11th-seeded Cougars jumped on Colorado and didn't let up, quickly turning the final game of the opening round into a rout.
McKinley Wright IV had 21 points and Tyler Bey 19 to lead the Buffaloes. CU has now lost five straight games.
