Buffs doubling up the Beavs (...) 18-9 midway thru 1st
Where would I be watching it?
Thanks. For some reason that channel hasn't come in on my satellite ever since it switched channels with ESPiN Classic... :huh:
760 AM radio online is an option as well
Wow, great first half after a sloppy start. 37-18 Buffs. Coincidence that our scoring is spread so evenly right now?? I think not. Also have a 19-11 edge on the boards
espn3.com is an option as well.
CU is ahead by a big score at the half. You got to be liking CU's chances in the Pac-12 next year.
I'm not sure the Beavers are a very good indication of the play in the Pac-12. They look terrible.
They are shredding the 1-3-1 and Levi is looking like Ray Allen out there, just knocking down 3s.
The Beavs finished 5th last season and were picked 8th by the media this preseason. Pac-10 has been struggling a bit in hoops, I believe they only had two tournament teams last season. It may be a similar situation again this year. The Buffs have a chance to make an immediate impact in the Pac-12 next season if they can continue to improve
We're making these guys look like a D-III team...they are playing incredibly sloppy and undisciplined basketball...
Well Sharpe just earned himself a lot of free-throw shooting in practice there...
Good game - first one that I've had a chance to see this year.
Glad the Buffs won easily. I might get myself into trouble however, but I didn't think they looked great. OSU looked awful, and I thought that the Buffs still looked very confused running the offense. Lots of passes, many panicked, around the perimeter, with lots of 3s getting jacked up. Maybe it is because they have no one to go to inside?
Funny watching Mills at the end. That guy needs some weight and some muscle. He also looked pretty nervous and lost, but I'm hopeful he will develop.
I find it hard to believe the Pac-10 is down in basketball like that...I'd say CU's basketball programs are the most Pac-10 ready.
83-57 good guys. The stats sheet on this one will be interesting.
Haha, I forgot about that until you mentioned it. You don't usually see somebody airball the second one. Didn't he short the first one too? That was crazy.
I thought, especially right off, that we looked TURRBUL against their zone. Poor poor decisions with the ball. It's a good thing Oregon State can't score...at....all.
Knutsen was lights out, and the main reason we blew the doors off OSU. Once we started getting him open looks, he nailed it. Once that started happening, they spread their D out a bit and we could drive and score.
Tomlinson took a shot from almost half court in the first half and I think he airballed it too. Boyle sat him for a few minutes right after that. Good call coach. Don't let our team do that nonsense. I was proud of Boyle for that.
Roberson impressed again. Not much else to say about that.
OSU may be bad, but we held them to 18 points in the first half, had 20 assists in the game and shot 72% or something like that from the field in the second half. A good confidence building win. Hopefully, they'll have an extra spring in their step for practices this week. Enjoy the day off tomorrow, you guys earned it.
Fair comments. It's hard to know what kind of offense they're running. But they do swing it around really well and they seem to find open men pretty often. Your view of 'panic' is partly because we're not there at the PG position yet. Nate T is still erratic as Junior, even though his neck is in pain now. We're depending on S. Sharpe, a 2nd year Freshman. That doesn't cut it. We had Burks & Higgins playing the point tonight - not exactly what the coaches need or want.
Ben Mills looks like he might fold in half. He should redshirt next year, unless he can somehow gain about 30 lbs quickly.
Higgins is the smartest CU player I've seen since Billups. Actually I take that back - smarter than Billups because Chauncey checked out a year too soon.
Burks is a special talent, but it's looking to me like he takes too many possessions off. He can't do that if CU has any hopes of being an NCAA team. Our most talented player can't take any time off.
Relphorde showed that he's a wonderful basketball player. Doubtful he'll get a look in the NBA, but he'll make some money overseas for sure. On a well balanced BB team, he'd be SUCH a good role player.
Great to see Knutsen have a career night. He deserves about 9 more of them.
Relphorde did look really good
