    GAME #21 at Iowa State Cyclones (12-8, 1-4 Big 12)
    • Date: Saturday, Jan. 30 • Tipoff: 7 p.m. (MST)
    • Television: Cyclone Television Network (ESPN 360, ESPN Full Court)
    • Announcers: B.J. Schaben (p-b-p), Kevin Lehman (analyst) • Location: Hilton Coliseum (14,356)
    • CU Radio: KKZN 760-AM: Mark Johnson (p-b-p), Charles Johnson (analyst); Sirius Channel 126
    • Series vs. Iowa State: The Cyclones lead the all-time series, 75-67 and hold a 14-13 edge in Big 12 play.

    QUICKLY: Cory Higgins and Alec Burks are separated by 21 points, the closest 1-2 scoring punch a CU team has had since 2003-04 [David Harrison (497, 17.1 ppg) and Michel Morandais (467, 16.1 ppg.)] • CU enters the week among the nation’s best in a variety of categories: fourth nationally in FT percentage (.769), 17th in FG% (.487), 46th in steals per game (8.5), 49th in scoring offense (76.4) • CU is 10-1 at home matching the 2005- 06 season after 11 games • CU has shot 50 percent or better in three of six Big 12 games (.489 overall) • Alec Burks leads the Buffaloes in conference scoring (19.2 ppg.).

    CYCLONES UPDATE: Iowa State comes into the game on a three-game losing (their second three-game skid of the sea- son). ISU is 1-4 in Big 12 play with their lone win coming at Ne- braska (56-53). Conference losses are to Texas (90-83), at Texas Tech (78-71), Kansas (84-61) and at Oklahoma (89-84). with the exception of the KU loss, Iowa State’s other three Big 12 losses are an average of six points. The Cyclones are 9-3 at home this season under fourth-year head coach Greg McDermott (56-59, .487).

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

    Time to kill the road monkey. That ****er's been on our backs way too long.

    Any chance at the postseason may be riding on the Buffs getting a win today.

    Individual note: Alec Burks needs 14 points to pass Matt Bullard for 6th place on the all-time Buff freshman scoring list.

    Prediction: Buffs 76 - Clones 71

    be nice to get Relphorde, Dufault, Harris-Tunks into halftime none of them in foul trouble. i think we can win, but have to get a handle on Brackins inside. too many times in the last 3 years we've had close games but falter because we give up too many easy buckets in the paint down the stretch.

    lot of interesting games in conference today/tonight. KU at KSU being the heavy. Baylor/UT, OSU/Missouri, etc.

    These Cyclone announcers giving the Buffs zero respect, even when they were up 12. Wish CU could eke out a win just for their reaction.

    Did we have a TO left there at the end? If so we should've called one after we got the turnover.

    No TOs... but they just spazzed out when they got the steal... come on guys... give the ball to a ball handler.

    Sad.

    Well the good thing is that we have CU Football to look forward too..



    Oh wait, I forget. CU Football is just as bad if not worse than CU Basketball..


    Depressing times..
