BOULDER, Colo. (AP) _ Askia Booker brought Colorado fans storming onto the court by swishing a 25-footer at the buzzer Saturday to lift Colorado to a 75-72 victory over No. 6 Kansas, marking the program's first victory over the Jayhawks in 20 tries.

Colorado (9-1) squandered a six-point lead with 1:44 left and Kansas tied the game with a bucket by Perry Ellis with 4 seconds left.

But after a timeout, the Buffs got the ball to Booker, who dribbled a few paces past half court and launched the shot that hit nothing but net.

The fans exploded onto the court to celebrate the program's ninth straight win _ and its first over Kansas (6-2) since 2003.

Booker and Spencer Dinwidde led CU with 15 points each.

Wiggins led the Jayhawks, who have lost two of their last three, with 22.
