    So far, while each showcased different story arcs, the four home Pac-12 games have all featured the same ending: a double-digit Buffs victory. *So far, CU is holding conference opponents*to 54 points per game (albeit assisted by the 33-point Utah effort), and paltry 35% shooting at 5,345 of Rocky Mountain high altitude.

    Maybe there's something to this whole altitude thing. *Or maybe the Buffs are just a good basketball team. *I'm more apt to lean towards the latter, but I am also a little biased.

    Regardless, those four wins are history now, and the beat rolls on. There's another chance to make a Pac-12 statement tipping-off Saturday afternoon, with the vaunted Arizona Wildcats coming to town. *Arizona is quietly putting together a decent season, and they are, as always, a marquee program with oodles of talent. *It's a very important game for the transitioning Buffs, and a win would do great things for CU's post-season hopes.

    If you want to see the Buffs in person on Saturday, you'd better already have a ticket, 'cause word is the game is already sold out. *I hope to see the same number of students tomorrow afternoon as who packed the southeast corner of the CEC Thursday evening. *I have it on good authority that the good snow will be ready for skiing on Sunday, so leave the slopes to the tourists, and support your University tomorrow.

    The game will tip off at 4pm, and will be broadcast on ROOT Sports. *Radio coverage is set for 850AM.
