    GAME #19 at Nebraska Cornhuskers (13-4, 1-2 Big 12)
    • Tuesday, Jan. 18, 5:02 p.m. (MST) Bob Devaney Center (13,595)
    • Television: ESPN2 Announcers: Jon Sciambi (p-b-p), Doug Gottlieb (analyst)
    • KKZN 760-AM: Mark Johnson (p-b-p), Chris Lewis (analyst)
    • Sirius Radio: 126 (NU Broadcast)

    QUICKLY: CU has won seven-straight games, their longest since 2005-06 (nine in a row) and is 3-0 to begin Big 12 play, a first since the 1996-97 campaign • CU is 5-0 to start the month of January, a first since the 1996- 97 season (NCAA Tourney Year, started 6-0) • CU is 11-0 at home this sea- son and has won 14-straight since last year • The Buffs are 3-6 all-time on ESPN2 and last appeared on the Deuce last November at the Maui Invite.

    QUICKLY...PART II: For the 10th time in his career, Cory Higgins was per- fect at the free throw line becoming CU’s all-time FT leader (487) • Higgins ranks sixth on the school’s scoring list (1,690 pts.), see page 7 for the all- time lists • Saturday’s sellout crowd of 11,096 against Oklahoma State was the eighth largest crowd at the Events Center • Alec Burks is 22nd in scor- ing (19.7 ppg.) and tied for second among all sophomores.

    DICKIE V SAYS: Dick Vitale’s weekly awards on his web page on espn.com

    NATIONAL RANKINGS: If CU is ranked this week, it will be the first time since the Buffaloes appeared in any ranking since the USA Today/Coaches’ Poll during the 2005-06 season at No. 25 in back-to-back weeks (Jan. 30-Feb. 5; Feb. 6-12). During those two weeks, CU was 15-3 and 5-2 in the Big 12, then lost at Iowa State and at Texas A&M. Last time CU was ranked in the AP poll was the final poll at No. 24 during the 1996-97 season.

    IF CU WINS AT NEBRASKA: The Buffs will have won three true road games in a season, the most since winning three in 2007-08 (all those wins in state of Colo- rado) • Wins at NU and K-State, would equal two Big 12 roads in the same sea- son since 2005-06 season (at Missouri, at Oklahoma State).

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

    My keys to the game:

    1. Buffs need to handle Diaz on the inside. He's a high energy guy who almost willed the Huskers to a comeback against us last season. 6'11" and averaging about 10 pts / 5 rebs. Buffs can't give up easy baskets or cheap fouls.
    2. Buffs need to win the rebounding battle (or at least not lose it). Nebraska is very strong on the glass this season and just torched KU on the boards in their gym. CU has out-rebounded each of its Big 12 opponents by double digits.
    3. Buffs need to shoot well and control pace. Nebraska holds teams to under 60 points a game and around 35% shooting. Buffs like to score around 80 a night and usually light it up at close to 50%.

    I have a bad feeling about this one, all the hallmarks of a let down game against a team we have match-up issues with.

    Too many bad jumpers. Gotta move the ball around more.

    One shot and done isn't doing us any favors.

    I don't think they're bad shots. They're wide open. They've got to knock those down.

    Part of that is Nebraska's style of play. This game won't be pretty.

    Still, don't mind being down 20-22 on the road. Looks like we're moving the ball well, playing pretty good defense, and winning on the glass.

    cant let them shoot 65% from the floor thought, which is where they are at now.

    Gotlieb went to Oklahoma State and got his radio start here. Still comes on frequently and talks hoops. Before we played (beat) Mizzou he was going down the list, breaking down the Big 12. Colorado: "garbage. As always. Next". Let's prove this smug asshole wrong, boys.

    We're getting a lot of open looks, but nothing in the paint. These teams are completely opposite styles.

    Defender's feet weren't set.

    We're gonna have to win this one at Nebraska's pace with the officiating also supporting the type of game they want to play.

    No free throws for the Buffs in the first half. Really?

    This game's gonna be played in the 60s. We've got to hit our 3s, get some more open looks in the paint, and control the defensive glass.

    We should win this basketball game.

    Down 30-31 at halftime.
