Buffaloes move on in postseason without star Askia Booker

BOULDER, Colo. (AP) Missing out on the NCAA Tournament for the first time in four years, coach Tad Boyle said the Colorado Buffaloes decided to play in the third-tier College Basketball Invitational to get a jumpstart on next season.

With that being the case, star senior Askia Booker backed out, saying he wanted to start focusing on a pro career and suggesting his young teammates needed to learn to play without him.

Another player who's transferring, part-time starter Dustin Thomas, joined the team on the bench in street clothes when the Buffaloes beat Gardner-Webb 87-78 Wednesday night. Josh Scott, who led the way with 23 points and 15 rebounds, wished Booker had been there, too.
