    GAME #14 vs. Cal State Bakersfield Roadrunners (8-5)
    Sunday, Jan. 2, 6 p.m. (MST)
    Television: none.
    KKZN 760-AM: Mark Johnson (p-b-p), Chris Lewis (analyst).
    Series with CSU Bakersfield: first meeting
    Conference: CU vs. Independents: 8-0.
    Tonight is CU's second match up against an Independent school. The Buffs defeated Longwood on Dec. 19.

    QUICKLY: Colorado has won 20-straight non-conference home games since the 2008-09 season, including 11 in a row at home dating back to last season • The Buffs have won all their home games in 2010-11 (8-0) • CU took the third place game at the Las Vegas defeating Indiana.

    NON-CONFENENCE ROAD GAMES (out of state/continental U.S.): Colorado brings an eight-game losing streak in non-conference road games outside the state of Colorado. CU's last out-of-state road non-conference win in the continental U.S. was Nov. 21, 2006 at Utah, 60-59. CU is 0-3 on the road this season with losses at Georgia, San Francisco, and Harvard.

    CAL STATE BAKERSFIELD: Tonight is the first-ever meeting with the Roadrunners and the Buffaloes. CSU-Bakersfield has won five of six games, including three games in a row. The Roadrunners have been idle since Dec. 22 and bring a 6-2 home mark into the game. The 'Runners enter Sunday's game versus Colorado riding a five-game home win streak - its longest at the NCAA Division I level. The last time CSUB won five straight at home was a five-game streak from Jan. 13-28, 2006. The six home wins already this season represent their most home victories at the NCAA Division I level (previously five wins in 2009 and 2010).

    TRENDS: CU has won nine of 10 games when at least four players score 10 or more points • CU has forced more turnovers than committed in 12 of 13 games and committed single-digit turnovers in seven of 13 games • The Buffs are 8-1 when scoring 80 or more points.

    MORE TRENDS: CU is 7-0 with a higher shooting percentage; 6-0 when their bench outscores the opponent; and 6-0 when outrebounding the opponent • CU is 8-1 when leading at the half; 6-0 when shooting 50 percent or higher; and eight of nine wins have occurred when taking care of the ball (having fewer turnovers).

    It's (long overdue) time for CU to unleash the beast on the road. Can't get caught in a 1-2 pt. ball game or an OT situation here, it's time to unload on somebody and head back home with that much more confidence on the road.

    CSB will -however- be a tougher test than most realize. This appears to be a pretty good team. Unfortunately, to this point, every team away from Boulder is tough for the Buffs. Will this be the same or will they finally turn that corner??

    Savage (6'6") will be tough to keep off the boards but this should be (like I was thinking/saying about USF and Harvard) a 10+ pt. win for the buffs, easily.

    I agree. Except that I thought we'd have a tight game with Harvard that could go either way. They're a good team.

    Nice to get a road W and a nuetral court W in the same season. When's the last time that happened? They'll close out the OOC at 11-4, and then........





    Let's upset the tiggers on Jan. 8th!

    Encouraging sign on the road tonight. Buffs were able seize control early, and despite things getting a little sloppy in the second half, were able to maintain a decent lead throughout. Time to pad the record with one more win against Western New Mexico before a top 10 Mizzou team comes calling at the CEC on Saturday. I really hope the CEC will be rocking Saturday - the Big XII schedule is brutal and an early upset is just what CU needs

    Buffs are also getting a little RPI help -- Oregon State has started 2-0 in the Pac with wins over Arizona State and Arizona.

    not much their RPI is still over 200. Mean while CSU is the one helping us out, they just beat Mississippi and southern Miss, not to mention USF.

    It could be that the losses, particularly to Harvard and USF, are hurting more than the wins against Indiana and Oregon St (and CSU) are helping. I always got the impression that bad losses hurt a lot more than quality wins helped.

    That loss to USF hurt. Those guys really sucked bad. It was painful to watch.

    In the long run, I don't think that Harvard loss really hurts the RPI, especially if they go on to win the Ivey as expected. RPI numbers can come out really goofy when there have been almost no conference games played.

    :nod: @ the bold

    RPI wouldn't be much lower if they had beat Harvard or USF. Where it hurts is if they end up on the bubble in March(I know it's a stretch), those two losses won't look good. It seems every year there is one OOC game they should have won but let get away. Last year was Oregon State, this year it's USF.

    In the future I hope our OOC road schedule doesn't look as stupid as this season's. @Georgia was a good game to schedule, but @USF, Harvard, and CSB weren't. Both USF and Harvard play in glorified high school gyms. It'd be nice to play a couple of bigger teams with hostile crowds in November and December, even if we can't get a home/home series.

    RPI is virtually meaningless until the end of Jan. 3 full weeks into conference play (6-7 games in)....we'll see how things shake out. we play KSU, KU, and MU twice....UT, BU, and ATM. winning home games and winning at OU or NU and ISU for instance is how we get to 8, 9 conference W's and make ourselves a player of post-season talk.
