    Well, a fortnight can certainly change a few things. *Only two weeks ago, CU was down and out, sliding to 4-4 in conference play, and adrift in a sea of questions. *After a 3-0 home stand, suddenly the ship appears righted, and the Buffs actually find themselves only a half game out of second-place. Huzzah!

    Of course, that's the key phrase - home stand. *All the gains over the last two weeks were made in the friendly confines of the CEC. *Considering that Colorado remains 1-3 away from Boulder in 2014, without a strong showing in the bunch, it's hard to take this team all that seriously without some substantial gains on the road.

    Which is where tonight's game comes in. *The Buffs travel to Westwood to take on the UCLA Bruins in a matchup for 2nd place in the Pac-12. *We've left the post-injury phase behind now; it's all about the players on the court. *This is their opportunity to define the club that they want to be apart of. A win, coupled with a series completion over USC this weekend, silences critics, and flips the narrative on its head. *Wouldn't it be a hell of a thing if they could do whatever-it-takes this evening to redefine the 2013-14 basketball season?

    --

    Tip-off from the re-vamped Pauley Pavillion*is set for 7pm this evening. *The fate of Western Civilization will hang in the balance, as the great Bill Walton has the color on ESPN2. *For those who hate fun, you can hide from the the Grateful Red-head with Mark Johnson on 850 KOA.
