    Turnabout is fair play.

    Last night was an eerily similar reprise of the CU/Stanford series from last season.* The game ended in a 21-point blowout, there was a massive rebounding disparity (18), and one of the teams comfortably shot over 50%.* Of course, the big difference was that it was the Buffaloes doing it to the Cardinal, rather than the other way around.

    It was good to get back into the CEC.* From: the BDC
    Questions about toughness and competitiveness melted away over 40 minutes of pure domination.* There was no "home whistle" pushing the Buffs to victory (quite the opposite, in fact), no streaky shooting fluking the scoreboard.* CU simply out-manned the Cardinal.* The resulting 75-54 win not only excised some of the Stanford pall still draped over memories from last season, but it also hints that the team has recaptured it's lost swagger.*

    It was the best start to finish game I've seen the team play since Charleston, and it marked the first time in weeks that I thought the team was really having fun out on the court.* All five starters notched double digits, and even Ben Mills found a way to chip in four points as the clock ticked towards zero. They shared the ball well (12 assists), and spread the scoring around.

    While every player in home white played a fantastic game, it was Andre Roberson who stole the show.* 12 points, 20 rebounds, three blocks, three steals, and two assists - it was the best individual performance by any one CU player this season.* He was flying everywhere after the ball, and nobody - Cardinal or Buff - was going to stand in his way.* Hopefully, when it comes time to vote on Pac-12 defensive player of the year someone slips this game film in front of the voters, because further discussion will become mute.

    Whose ball?* 'Dre's Ball!* From: the BDC
    The only question remaining after last night: can they carry the momentum forward?* We'll find out Saturday against Cal.

    Tipoff from the CEC is set for 1:30pm MT tomorrow.* Those of you with DirecTV are in luck, because the game can be seen on ROOT Sports/FSN.* If you can't even find that, Mark Johnson will have his radio call on 850 KOA.
