OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Dexter Pittman dominated inside with a career-high 26 points and 10 rebounds, leading Texas past Colorado 67-56 Wednesday in the first round of the Big 12 tournament.

At 6-foot-10 and about 300 pounds, the oversized Pittman had his way against Colorado's interior defense. Ge started out 9-for-10 from the field with four dunks and even hit his first five free throws.

Colorado (9-22) didn't have an answer inside and could never break through against the 2-3 zone deployed by the Longhorns (21-10), going 4-for-17 from 3-point range. Dwight Thorne II scored 15 to lead the 12th-seeded Buffaloes, who set a new school record with their 22nd loss of the season.

Texas' Damion James added 11 points and 11 rebounds for his 15th double-double.
