PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) — Charles Callison scored a career-high 30 points and had five steals, pacing Washington State past Colorado 91-89 in overtime on Saturday, as the Cougars put a four-game losing streak to rest and kept the Buffaloes winless in conference play.

Iroegbu finished with 20 points and eight boards. White paced Colorado with 25 points, six assists and five rebounds.
