CU this Friday

Post by bearadactyl » Mon Nov 06, 2017 12:27 pm

That CSU exhibition was close, solid showing though we didn't win. Good warm up for the Buffs.

Preseason poll has us at 7th. I think that's way underrated.

For what it's worth, ESPN ranked all 351 D1 teams...
CU 95, CSU 117, DU 141, AF 204, NC 233.

Looking forward to listening to this. I have DirecTV so no Pac10 network for me.

Got basketball brain today, wonder why. Line for tonight's game is -10.5.
Also tonight, Northern AZ is -37 underdog vs Arizona. And Sac State is at CSU. Hopefully we all win.

From SI:

"No conference may be more wide open than the Big Sky. Our model likes Weber State (No. 143) in large part because of head coach Rahe’s excellent track record, but seven teams have a legitimate shot at claiming the conference crown, including a Northern Colorado squad (No. 195) that gets back redshirt senior guard Anthony Johnson, who didn’t play last season but averaged 15.8 points per game in ’15–16. Another good pick for the league champ might be Montana State (No. 176), which is headlined by NBA draft prospect Tyler Hall..."

"Nicholls (No. 213) ...includes two frontcourt role players in Kimani Jackson and Jeremy Verhagen who put up solid statistics at Colorado State and Northern Colorado respectively.... It’s now or never for the senior-heavy Colonels, and SI pegs them as the No. 1 squad in the Southland."

Good game so far in the second half. I thought we would struggle with Davis in foul trouble, but we are playing well. Spicht is a stud!

47-47 in the second half and some unease in the stands. One Buffs fan said "they're not supposed to be this good"--I guess that's a compliment.

Of course we couldn't make a 3 and that's really all she wrote against a much bigger team. But some positives tonight for sure.

Refs called palming on us two straight possessions, different players.

Well, unfortunately I went to bed before it even started (had a planned early morning run that I needed plenty of sleep for). Looks like they represented well but didn't have the depth that CU did off of the bench.

The ladies had a nice road win in Chicago against DePaul. Good win going into a fun couple of games:
11/12 @ DU
11/15 vs. LSU
