    GAME #23
    at Oregon State Beavers (12-11, 2-8 Pac-12)
    Sunday, February 10, 7:06 p.m. (MST)
    Arena: Gill Coliseum (9,604)
    Television: Pac-12 Network
    Announcers: JB Long and Lamar Hurd
    850 AM KOA: Mark Johnson, Chad Brown
    Satellite Radio: Sirius: 92, XM: 191 (OSU Broadcast)
    CU vs. Oregon State: Buffs lead 7-3 (at Boulder, 6-0; at Corvallis,
    1-3). Both teams won at home last season (CU, 82-60
    at the Coors Events Center; OSU at Gill Coliseum, 83-69). CU
    has not won at OSU since Dec. 3, 1955 (58 years).
    Coach Boyle Teams vs. Oregon State: 2-3

    STARTERS: All six Pac-12 road games, win or lose, have been decided
    by 10 points or less (and 11 of 12 outside of Boulder - KU only exception)
    • Buffs have played 16 games decided by 10 points or less (10-6)
    • CU is 2-2 against ranked opponents this season • Current 15-7 record
    matches last year’s record after 22 games.

    #1 NATIONALLY: For the ϐirst time in his career this season, Andre Roberson
    is ranked No. 1 nationally in rebounding (Feb. 8) at 11.7 per game.
    The current 11.7 per game average is the best of his career for a season.
    See left column on page 2 for additional conference/national rankings.
    ‘Dre’s career totals are 10.0 rpg., 9.5 ppg., 1.5 spg., 1.5 bpk.

    A WIN TODAY MEANS: A 16-7 record matches last year after 23 games
    • CU ϐirst win in Corvallis since Dec. 3, 1955 (58 years). Buffs are 1-3
    at OSU • Back-to-back road conference wins since last year (at Arizona
    State, at Utah) eight days apart; last true back-to-back road wins in
    shorter time frame: ϐive days, at Baylor, 73-56 (Feb. 20, 1999) and at
    Texas Tech, 78-68 (Feb. 24, 1999) • Third conference road win matches
    last year and 2003-04 & 2000-01 seasons.

    Thursday night's win, said CU guard Askia Booker, "builds a lot of confidence. But, honestly, if we don't beat Oregon State it doesn't mean anything. At the end of the day, we have another road game . . . if we don't win, that (Thursday night) doesn't mean a whole lot."

    Watch out for Oregon State's shooting in this one. They're a very talented offensive team. If they get hot, we can be in trouble. This is a team you have to frustrate from the defensive end.

    This is a bit of an unexpected stat considering how frustrating they've been on the road this season. Guess we're starting to get a little spoiled. :lol:

    Better tread carefully in this one. Oregon State can get hot. Hopefully 'Robinson time' takes over.

    I think what I copied from cubuffs.com had the game time wrong. ESPN Gamecast and my tv listings for PACN are both showing a 7pm MT tip.

    50/50

    Win this one, and I'll start to believe a bit in our team on the road. It would be wins in our last 3/4 and get us to 4-6 in road games on the year.

    Right now, we're a .333 win % in road games and playing the 11th place team in the conference. I might be over-confident to put this at 50/50.

    KenPom has this at 63% shot of winning, 73-70, Sevenovertimes projected this out at 69 all and Sagarin has CU favored by 3.

    The Vegas line has been all over the place, it opend at CU -1 now it is CU +2.5. It is really odd to see a deviation of more than a point or two from KenPom's projection, so 5.5 point difference is unusual to say the least.

    Buffs on the road is such a mystery. I know the same can be said of nearly any team on the road, but I could literally see this stretching from anything from Oregon State pulling away at the end to CU winning relatively comfortably. I do like Oregon State winning their last game against Utah, I just feel like that's helpful to us for some reason. Just have to hope our defense is ready to go and doesn't let this be one of those times the Beavs decide to shoot 55 percent.

    good stuff thanks all. I've finally gotten past the "Hey! That dude passed it to that guy and it went in the thing!" stage but only by a little THe info helps.

    16-6 Buffs. Don't look back. Facing a poorly coached team with low confidence. Crush all resistance.

    If this line up can come up and post some good minutes and some scoring this road trip could have done us some real good in terms of depth. Need to see the killer instinct from the buffs.

    One early concern is the rebounds, Beavs out-rebounding us 10-7 and we've let them get 5 offensive rebounds already
