    Arizona played pistol hot. Colorado has had the same look rim out twice to advance.

    Anyone driving from SF to Vegas tonight?

    This is going to be interesting. You guys haven't faced the Buffs with Wes Gordon healthy on the inside. We match up much better with UA with Wes in there.

    It is basically IMPOSSIBLE to beat a team 3 times in one year.

    The way Arizona is playing.......... suffocating. Don't see anyone beating them right now. That said, just took another look at goazcats and am convinced they are the worst fan base I have ever encountered. Insecure bravado to the nth degree.

    This. If the Arizona team that showed up today shows up tomorrow, I don't like our chances, even if we play near flawless. Today was clear #1 in the country Arizona. Gotta hope we don't see their A game.

    I have always liked zona basketball but now that we are in the Pac 12 and we have been exposed to their fanbase.... that has definitely changed. F**k the chards.

    This is legitimate point. Arizona has struggled when teams have forced them onto the perimeter. They beat Utah today in transition.

    Uhhh, Arizona just beat Utah. For the third time. This year. And at least the seventh consecutive.

    CU has to make this game extremely physical to keep it close, like batter them in the paint.

    Oh joy. We play Pima County Broomhandle Normal School and Insanitorium again.

    In the O'odham Indian language, the word Tucson translates as "sodomy by hairy science fiction character."

    Those *********** sure fixate on the poop chute.

    I'm not seeing a win against that defense, but if it happens, the Buffs could move all the way up to a 7 seed and escape the 1 seed in the second (third) round.

    If CU beats Arizona, we'll see at least the 6 line.

    Oh yeah? Well, it's REALLY basically impossible to beat two teams 3 times in one year.

    So hypothetical, would you take a CU win and a Pac-12 championship if it meant an exit after the first game in the NCAAT? Or a loss tomorrow and 1 win in the NCAAT

    I think the only solution is a razor and dye job so your hair looks like Tad's.

    the conference championship -- no question. winning against teams with comparable academic standards, athletic budgets and recruiting territories is more important to me than winning on the National level (says the guy whose alma matter's only NCAA team championship is in bass fishing).

    I'd take a Pac12 tourney championship over 1 NCAA Tourney win. But I definitely would not take it over the Sweet 16.

    I was a UA BB fan up until a few weeks ago. Even applied there as my safety safety school. Sat next to Lute Olson when he came to my HS to recruit our big center- Kevin Flanagan. From that point on, they were my PAC BB program since I disliked fUCLA so. But now.... nope. Not even a little.

    Hierarchy goes like this:

    1. Sweet 16 or better
    2. Conference regular season title
    3. Conference tourney title
    4. At-large bid to the Dance
    5. Anything else you can spin as a positive -- signature wins, preseason tourney title, etc.... but we're at the point where this stuff is bells & whistles for the resume... if it's the best the Buffs achieve it was a poor season
