After No. 6 Kansas came back to tie the game at 72 in the final seconds, Colorado's Askia Booker grabbed the inbounds pass with 2.9 seconds left, took a few dribbles and drilled the game-winning three-pointer.

Colorado's bench ran onto the court to celebrate:

Booker finished the game with 15 points. His shot gave the Buffaloes a 75-72 victory and their ninth straight win. The Jayhawks have now lost two of their last three games.
