    This makes it sound like they'll be a decent challenge. Not Kentucky, but tournament experience last year. That avg points doesn't mean much when it was a 60 and a hundy, but the defensive focus wasn't so obvious in game one, so look forward to seeing if we can shut them down tonight. Go Buffs!

    Need to take those No Colo scores with a grain of salt. The 101 score was against Division II Western State. And the 60 was against Denver ... a team that CU beat last year 77-49 in Denver.

    Once again, way too many fouls early. Luckily unc can't hit the broad side of a barn.

    Buffs struggled a bit in 3rd quarter while UNC played with more confidence. Too many turnovers from CU.

    Long way to go for the Buffs to be ready for Pac 12 play, but they have some of the pieces.

    Thanks to the gods (and hopefully great perimeter D) for the Bears being 4-26 from 3. Buffs up 52-34 with ~5-1/2 minutes left.

    Despite a poor third quarter the Buffs were never in trouble in this one.

    At the same time this team isn't close to ready for Pac 12 play.

    Concur. 3rd was a dumpster fire. But also, like you said, pieces are there. When they got in our face on D, we unraveled. Need to figure out how to get rid of the ball and keep composure. There was a section in that game with like 3 jump balls in a minute, it was silly. Really nice to see that any of a number of people will step up to score. The freshmen who have had so many points got pretty shut down, but Haley Smith and ZBF picked it up like we expect them to. And Jamee got her double-double.
    Best moment of the game for me: Huge block by Jamee, picked up by Kennedy, Jamee somehow beat her down the floor but the pass is knocked right back to Kennedy as she's rolling in to lane and she lays it up.

    It's plays like this that I love watching!

    Agree that this team is not ready to be competitive in the Pac12. Some pieces are falling in to place, but we will see more today with a road game against a ranked team.
