Freshman reserve Askia Booker scored 16 points Thursday night and 11th-seeded Colorado held off a furious UNLV rally for a 68-64 victory in the South Regional. CU (24-11) led 49-29 with just under 15 minutes remaining, then sixth-seeded UNLV (26-9) went on a 26-8 run to cut the margin to two at the 4:20 mark. But UNLV missed its next seven shots and Carlon Brown took a full-court pass for a windmill dunk to help the Buffs gather themselves and win in their first NCAA appearance since 2003. Austin Dufault finished with 14 points and Andre Roberson had 12 points and 16 rebounds for CU, which plays Baylor on Saturday. Anthony Marshall had 15 for UNLV, which went 9 for 36 from 3-point range.
