BOULDER, Colo. -Joseph Jones scored 18 points and grabbed a career-high 15 rebounds as No. 8 Texas A&M beat Colorado 87-69 on Saturday night for its eighth straight victory.

The Aggies (15-2, 3-0 Big 12) are off to their best start since opening 16-2 in 1959-60. The last time Texas A&M started 3-0 in league play was 1993-94 when it was a member of the Southwest Conference.

Colorado was led by Dominique Coleman with 17 points. He also had a career-best 13 rebounds.

The Buffaloes became the first team to score more than 65 points against the Aggies, who came in allowing the third-fewest points per game in the country (52.7).

Colorado (4-9, 0-3) has beaten a ranked opponent at home in each of the last four years, but it couldn't upset the Aggies. The Buffaloes were as close as 57-56 with less than 10 minutes remaining - and had several chances to take the lead - but couldn't capitalize.
