This is a big week for CU, Washington is one of the "premier" bball teams in the P12 (whatever that means) and WSU is ranked ahead of the Buffs in kenpom.com ratings (88th and 127th for CU).
A couple of things I will be watching for this week:
How does CU match up against UW? They are big and very athletic and they basically start two PG's now that Wroten (6-5) has been inserted into the starting lineup for Wilcox. Gaddy is the other and he stands 6-3. I don't think CU has played a minute of zone all season, if we are going to see a zone D out of Tad this is going to be the game.
Will we continue to see teams play almost exclusive zone against CU? Did the Mayor and Ski's solid shooting last game make anybody reevaluate playing zone against the buffs?
How does CU fare in their first real week of P12 ball, how to they come out against WSU win or lose?
The keg, it has been pretty full the last couple of games, with P12 ball fully underway it should be near capacity Thursday night.
