BOULDER, Colorado (Ticker) -- Blair Wilson scored a career-high 26 points and Stephane Pelle had 18 and 18 rebounds as Colorado ran its home winning streak to 10 games with an 89-68 Big 12 Conference victory over No. 22 Missouri.
Colorado matched the school record for consecutive home victories, set during the 1979-80 season.
Wilson, who made six 3-pointers, scored 15 points in the opening 20 minutes as the Buffaloes (16-9, 6-6 Big 12) grabbed a 40-30 lead.
"Lately, at home, I've been feeling good shooting," Wilson said. "Even the misses tonight felt good and, when that happens, that gives you confidence and your teammates get you the ball."
Pelle recorded one of three double-doubles for Colorado. Michel Morandais contributed 17 points and 10 assists and David Harrison added 15 and 11 boards as the Buffaloes secured their third home win over a ranked team this season, having previously beaten conference foes Texas and Kansas.
"We had our main guys show up and, like I've said before, that's what we need every night," Buffaloes coach Ricardo Patton said. "It was a grind, it was definitely not easy. We shot the ball particularly well, especially in the second half. If you shoot the ball well, you can play with anyone."
Colorado snapped an eight-game skid against Missouri.
Rickey Paulding scored 22 points and Arthur Johnson chipped in 17 for the Tigers (16-7, 7-5), who have lost six of their last seven road games.
"I thought we battled, but there is a little bit we need to find," Tigers coach Quin Snyder said. "In games like this, the margins of error are so small. I think my team fought. We are just not as mature as we need to be."
The Tigers battled back in the second half. Johnson hit a jumper with 13:34 to go, capping a 13-3 surge and reducing their deficit to 50-48.
The Buffaloes had a three-point advantage when David Harrison made a basket with 10:08 left to give them a 60-55 lead and ignite a 13-3 run.
"Coach is pretty emotional and I think that helps our team," Harrison said. "When they make runs, we now know that we are just as good as they are and we can make runs right back at them."
Harrison also recorded two blocks as the sophomore center broke the school record with 75 this season.
Colorado's lead was 62-57 when Wilson nailed a 3-pointer with just under eight minutes remaining and increased its lead to eight.
After Missouri's Josh Kroenke made 1-of-2 from the line, Antoine McGee and Pelle converted back-to-back layups and Morandais hit both free throws with 5:41 left to open a commanding 71-58 advantage.
