    GAME #21
    vs. 6/6 Kansas Jayhawks (18-1, 3-1 Big 12)
    Tuesday, Jan. 25, 6:04 p.m.
    (MST) Coors Events Center (11,064)
    Television: Big 12 Network (Altitude 2 Sports & Entertainment)
    Announcers: Dave Armstrong (p-b-p), Reid Gettys (analyst)
    KKZN 760-AM: Mark Johnson (p-b-p), Chris Lewis (analyst)
    Sirius Radio: 126 (CU Broadcast)

    QUICKLY: CU is 11-0 at home this season and have won 14-straight games since last year • CU’s 3-2 start in Big 12 play rivals the school’s best start af- ter five games in conference play (5-0 in 1996-97; 3-2 in 2005-06) • CU has won seven of nine games and 12 of its last 15 • The last time KU was No. 6 in both polls and played CU in Boulder, they lost Jan. 22, 2003 (60-59).

    CU vs. KU: The Jayhawks have dominated the all-time series with Colo- rado holding a 119-39 advantage since 1931. KU leads the Buffs, 39-26 in Boulder. In Big 12 play, KU leads 28-1 (13-1 in Boulder). The only setback is CU’s 60-59 win in Boulder over the then-No. 6 ranked team back on Jan. 22, 2003. KU has won 15-straight since their last loss to CU in Big 12 play.

    SELLOUT CROWDS: Tuesday marks the second straight game the Buffs have sold out the Coors Events Center. Back on Jan. 15 against Oklahoma State, the Events Center packed the house with 11,096, the eighth largest crowd in Boulder.

    *********************

    For the Buffs, this game will really come down to 3 things:

    1) Contain the Morris brothers inside (limiting them to their 30 pt / 15 rebound combined average would be a win).

    2) Execute the offense (knock down open shots, get to the free throw line & avoid turnovers).

    3) Take care of business on the glass (need to at least be even here).

    Anyone know if the grassroots calls for a 'blackout' game came to anything? Haven't seen official word, but maybe students are planning to wear the black?

    Wear black. I don't know how well it caught on, but we should do our part. I assume everyone's got a black Buffs shirt.

    CU Athletic Department send out an email to ticket holders to wear black.

    "WEAR BLACK AND ARRIVE EARLY – Doors open at 4:30 p.m."

    We're just too good for them to win by that margin. We beat the line easily.
