FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) Shane Gatling scored a season-high 20 points and Tyler Bey had a big block down the stretch to help No. 24 Colorado hold off Colorado State 56-48 on Friday night after squandering a 16-point lead.

Leading 33-17 with 16:41 remaining, the Buffaloes (8-2) couldn't close out a cold-shooting Rams team that suddenly found their touch. Colorado State tied the game at 39 with 7:18 left.

Moments later, Gatling had a bucket to put the Buffaloes ahead for good. Gatling was originally credited with a block shot on Nico Carvacho down the stretch but it was changed to Bey. Gatling did seal the win with two late free throws.
