    Join us for the 8pm mountain tip-off from the Coors events center in a game that is a must win for Tad and the guys if we want to go dancing. USC comes in 6-9 having bitten off a brutally tough early season schedule that resulted in three losses to ranked teams. Against the one comon opponent we have USC also beat Dayton, this time it was at home and by two. Go Buffs!

    We win this game by 10+ for three reasons:
    1) We can own the boards
    2) USC is a poor 3PT shooting team
    3) CU is TOUGH at home

    Buffs 71-60.

    RealTimeRPI says Buffs win 81-62, and gives us an 84.2% chance of winning. I agree. There's absolutely no reason we shouldn't kill these guys. USC is garbage and it's at home. Time to get our act together and start picking up some conference W's. Use this as a springboard.

    Anyone but SHT, please! How is Mills worse than the worst player I've ever seen? No one can be this bad.

    Very nice first half. I really wish they would do something about the free throw shooting.

    Hit 5 more free throws and the Buffs are leading by 20 at half.

    53.3% free throw shooting as a team is going to continually bite them in the ass.

    If we weren't playing a ****** team that can't get out of its own way, we'd be down by 12 instead of up by 12
