    LAHAINA, Hawaii -- Nic Wise scored 30 points, including 16 of his team's final 19, to lead Arizona past Colorado 91-87 in overtime Tuesday in a consolation game at the Maui Invitational.

    Wise appeared to give the Wildcats (3-1) enough of a cushion when he scored his team's final eight points of regulation, on two 3-pointers and a pair of free throws, to give them an 80-72 lead with 52 seconds left.

    But Wise's point-guard counterpart, Cory Higgins, led the Buffaloes (3-2) back. Higgins assisted on a 3-pointer by Nate Tomlinson and hit a 3-pointer himself. Then his free throws with 20 seconds left sent the game to overtime.

    In overtime, Wise sank two free throws to bring his team within 85-84 with 3:20 left, and his layup put the Wildcats ahead to stay 86-85 with 2:42 left.

    Jamelle Horne had 17 points, Brendon Lavender 16 and Derrick Williams 11 for Arizona. Wise added six asissts.

    Higgins finished with 28 points, Tomlinson 20, Alec Burks 19 and Austin Dufualt 14 for the Buffaloes.
