Hopefully the Buffs can keep the turnovers, their main issue as the year has gone on (50 turnovers total in their two games last week, ugh), to a minimum. Also, hope they start out quicker than they did last week in their LA swing, during which they didn't score in the 1st 5+ minutes against UCLA, leading to an 11-0 early deficit, and then followed up by digging a 6-15 hole for themselves early in the game against USC. Hopefully as they address those issues, the strengths for the Buffs this conference season will continue- mainly their shooting (.384 from 3 vs. .304 for the opposition; .783 from the free throw line vs. .703 for the opposition), and rebounding (out-rebounding the opposition by ~3 boards per game). (Kudos to the team for the progress in rebounding- early in the year many opponents were DOMINATING the Buffs with offensive boards, but the Buffs largely corrected that by the start of conference play, as they're statistically only down ~1 offensive board per game in conference play.) cubuffs.com preview of the game- http://www.cubuffs.com/ViewArticle.dbml?DB_OEM_ID=600&ATCLID=209887538 .
