The Buffaloes connected on seven of their first nine shots of the game to take an early eight-point lead, 15-7. The Hurricanes responded with a 7-0 run to pull to within one, but Colorado extended its lead back to eight with 2:48 to play in the half.

However, Miami locked in for the final 90 seconds of the first half, stringing together a 10-3 run to head into the locker room down one, 37-36.

Pack opened the second half with his second 3-pointer of the game to give Miami its first lead of the day, 39-37. However, Colorado put together a dominant 17-2 run in the waning minutes of the game to extend its lead to as much as 29. The Buffaloes used a 70 percent second-half shooting effort to close out the game, outscoring Miami, 53-27, in the final 20 minutes.
