    Yes, we'll likely be at 21 a week from now. However, it won't ever be much more than that until we learn to run a real team offense and get a better bench.

    They have a good chance to do so this season.

    Agree on the half court offense, but the bench should be better next season. Younger but with more talent.

    I agree that the bench should be MUCH better, I'm really pumped for next season

    Didn't get to watch today. Was the Ray Charles-like shooting efficiency a result of not getting good shots, or were they just so far off that running a good half court offense (which needs to happen anyway) wouldn't have helped them make a shot?

    Our transition was non-existent, and thus we were doing a bunch of 1-on-1 BS and not taking it strong to the hoop... Or, just launching desperation 3's with no time left on the clock.

    We had no confidence offensively either. There wasn't a player on the team who was consistently aggressive offensively.

    They did miss a lot of open looks though. Just a bad shooting day.

    Credit to Cal. You're going to have a few of these nights every season. When you do, you're going to lose unless the other team gets lazy or stupid. Cal didn't give the game away and we didn't have nearly enough to take it today.

    Whether they get to that number or not this season, I think this year is Tads best coaching job yet. To have the youth and lack of depth this team has and to still be in the tourney talk is pretty phenominal, especially when you consider how daunting the schedule looked.

    What's the point of a post like this?

    The same can be said for your post.

    This. They've already matched the win total I expected with this roster. You can always find some gameday coaching decisions to criticize (beating the press?), but given the schedule, the youth & experience players of we have, and Ski's slump, it's pretty amazing that we're even talking 20 wins.

    Oregon is going to come to play, would not take them for granted.

    Cal really challenged shots defensively. But, it would be the best scenario for CU if they won the Pac-12 regular season because them as a 1 seed does not worry me away from their home court.

    I'm sure they will, doesn't change that were gonna beat them again at home where we can actually shoot the ball and move the ball around.

    Again, I would not take that for granted. It's a 63.1% chance, not exactly lock status.

    Chances are better when you refrain from saying that.

    I think they will be fine this week. Ski shoots much better at home, and though the mayor hasnt had a chance to guard artis, I think he can limit him. This is obviously not the same ducks team that we beat at home - I wouldnt be surprised to see a much higher game score this go round.
    Dre will be able to wreak his usual havoc on the glass, the student section (and rest of the keg) should be packed. It will still feel like a battle, but I feel better about these last 2 than the one at cal.
    It'd be nice to have AZ lose to assu, but I dont think that's likely.

    We should win. But, keep in mind Oregon is highly effective on the road under Altman. They've been as successful in true road games as anyone under Altman outside of that small handful of elite top 5 teams. 6-3 this season

    I have been building a database of random stats and it is nearly complete so expect more than my normal share of throwing out random stats, but I found this interesting.

    At home in the first half CU is outscoring opponents by 10.3 points and is getting outscored in the second half by 1.5 points.

    Oregon on the road is getting outscored in the first half by 3.3 points and is outscoring opponents in the second half by 3.5 points.

    It's obvious that CU has gotten out to several early leads at home and has given some of that lead back but it appears by Oregon's strong second halves on the road they aren't a team you let off of the gas if CU is lucky enough to get an early lead.
