    Free Throw %: 79.3% (#1 in D1)
    3-Point %: 40.5% (#27 in D1)
    Field Goal %: 50.2% (#11 in D1)
    Scoring Offense: 79.5 per game (#39 in D1)

    We definitely have an efficient offensive team that is fun to watch. CU is actually NCAA Tournament good on the offensive end.

    Let's hope our defense keeps improving and our rebounding comes around. If they do, we could end up having a surprisingly good run over the rest of the season despite how good the Big 12 is this year.

    With better defensive and rebounding efforts CU would probably have 9 to 10 wins. But that's part of the growing pains.

    It's amazing how every little detail, an extra few rebounds or a handful of bad defensive possessions, can make or break you. It's also amazing how close the Buffs are to really having a terrific record to go with the exciting team that we've been watching, that we all know is capable of being pretty good. And it really comes down to what coach is saying ... better 40 min. effort on those two things will go a l-o-n-g w-a-y.

    It'll be interesting to see how they'll stack up w/the Big 12.

    I don't believe that this is a last place team, but then again, as fast as the Big 12 is improving (w/more teams getting stronger seemingly by the minute here), maybe even a better/stronger Buffs team will still have that much more room to make up. Then again - maybe not, if they can improve their defense and bring more effort on the glass.

    This conference is such a force right now.

    Looks like we're #7 right now in free throws but still... :wow:...given how poor we've traditionally been behind the line, to be top 10 in the nation is just incredible...also worth noting, at the bottom of the Division I FT rankings is this interesting little tidbit:

    334 Northern Ill. 8 1-7 87 164 53.0
