University of Colorado’s George King (No. 24) takes a shot from three point territory in the game against Air Force Academy at the Coors Event Center in Boulder, Colorado on Nov. 26, 2017.

Despite the eye-popping final numbers that netted a few career milestones along the way, George King wasn’t exactly in a bragging mood.

Asked if his monster performance during Colorado’s 81-69 victory Sunday against Air Force counted as the best of his CU Buffaloes career, King offered nothing more than a succinct and understated, “Probably so.”

Head coach Tad Boyle was a little more forthcoming after King’s 25-point, 15-rebound effort at the Coors Events Center helped his club overcome a sluggish first half while improving to 6-0 on the young season.

“He was a beast tonight,” Boyle said. “He was an absolute beast on the boards. He let the game come to him. The best thing about his 25 points was that it came on 13 shots. Great efficiency.”

King’s double-double was his first of the season and the eighth of his career, and he posted 25 points for the second consecutive game — a total eclipsed only by a career-best 27 points he scored at Auburn early in the 2015-16 season. King established a new career-high in rebounds while going 9-for-13 from the floor with a 5-for-6 mark on 3-pointers, which also matched a career-high for made 3-pointers in a single game.
