    It's February. *Football's done, and pitchers and catchers haven't even reported yet. *It's time for college basketball to hit the national spotlight. *Right on cue, tonight's game against Arizona is set for national TV. *Full-on ESPN no less; the BasketBuffs have arrived at a much larger stage than I'm used to.

    It's not like it's an accident that the Buffs are finding themselves in the featured*primetime*game on the World-wide Leader. *As the #2 team in a "power" conference, this level of coverage is to be expected. *If anything, it's a gift. *The Buffs have a chance to make a statement on national television - this is a new breed of Colorado basketball, everyone come look at how awesome this is.

    If CU has any thoughts of grabbing an at-large big for the Dance, this is a must win game. *What's more, a*win, and the Buffs are not only in serious contention for a league title, but one of the favorites to capture it. **It's a*tough*trip, to be sure, walking into the home of a*perennial*league power, but this is the kind of game that serious basketball teams find a way to win.* Plus, they're a rival now, or something.

    Tip off from the McKale center is set for 7pm. *If you can't find ESPN on your television package, you should seek medical attention*immediately, because, I promise you, it's there. *Mark Johnson can be heard on 760 if the ESPN crew gets too annoying.

    My preview of the first game can be found here.
