Charleston, SC (Sportsbooks) - Eight months later, a different tournament and a different result. Baylor beat Colorado in the NCAA Tournament last March, but Askia Booker and Spencer Dinwiddie made sure the Buffaloes gained a small measure of revenge with a 60-58 victory over the 16th- ranked Bears in Friday's semifinals of the Charleston Classic. Booker scored 16 of his 19 points in the first half to help Colorado build a lead and Dinwiddie made some big plays down the stretch on his way to 11 points, as the Buffs (3-0) withstood some awful free throw shooting to advance to Sunday's championship game against either Murray State or St. John's. Pierre Jackson hit two from the line with 19.8 seconds left to pull Baylor within 59-58 and Booker made only the first of a 1-and-1 chance at the other end to give the Bears a chance for the win or tie. A.J. Walton drove to the basket, but was unable to convert a contested layup and Andre Roberson came up with the rebound with four seconds remaining. Roberson missed two from the line, but the rebound on the second miss was batted around and Baylor was given possession out of bounds with exactly one second left. A long inbound pass from under the basket was caught at the opposing foul line by Isaiah Austin but the turnaround jumper bounced off the rim as time expired. Cory Jefferson led Baylor (3-1) with 17 points and Jackson, after a 31-point effort in the Bears' win Thursday against Boston College, managed only 12. HASH(0xa897a2c)
