    Happy New Year!* I hope everyone enjoyed their break.* I certainly did, but it's time to refocus, and welcome Pac-12 play into our lives.


    The Buffs have been lounging for too long, feasting on fatty fare like Northern Arizona and Hartford.* The meat of the season is now upon us, and the challenges will come fast and heavy for Coach Boyle and the boys.* I like to think the brutally tough non-conference schedule as steeled the young Buffs for this day, but only time will tell just how ready CU is for the road ahead.


    The Pac-12 schedulers certainly didn't make it easy, handing the Buffs a mountainous challenge right off the bat.* The defending conference champions are tasked with marching into Arizona to take on the vaunted #3 Wildcats in a rematch of the 2012 Pac-12 title game.* Compared to what the team has faced the last two weeks, we've gone straight from rookie to All-Madden.


    In preparation for the action, I was tasked by Pac-12 hoops aficionado Adam Butler with helping to preview the game over at PacHoops.com.* Along with well known BasketBuffs gurus James Lucas and Jason Gilligan, I think I made a good showing in the ramp-up for the game.* I highly suggest you click on the link, and soak in the dialogue that covers everything from Spencer Dinwiddie's mustache to my Bulls-fan homerism for Steve Kerr.


    After clicking on that, come on back for my preview, which is typically exhaustive and exhausting.


    Tip-off from the McKale Center is set for 6pm MT this evening. *Televised coverage can be found on ESPNU, with Mark Johnson hitting the airwaves on 850 KOA.
