    KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Alec Burks scored 25 of his 29 points in the second half and Colorado unleashed a 12-2 run in the final minutes to slip past 12th-seeded Iowa State 77-75 Wednesday in a hard-fought first-round game in the Big 12 tournament.

    Jake Anderson had a career-high 33 points for the Cyclones (16-16), the second-highest total ever scored by a college player in the Sprint Center. The Iowa State senior was 13 for 20 from the floor, including 3 of 5 from 3-point range, but the Cyclones lost their sixth straight Big 12 tournament game.

    Burks, one of two unanimous picks on the All-Big 12 team, was 9 for 16 from the floor and 11 of 14 from the foul line as the Buffaloes (20-12) advanced to the second round against No. 19 Kansas State, a team they beat twice in the regular season.
