    Today, the buffs travel to the pacific northwest, where they are still without a win since joining the pac. They also are looking to excise the demons of spencer and fletcher's injuries from last december.

    This game should be very different than last time, as CU was without jelly & XJ while UW had robert upshaw (since dismissed). CU Lost in a heartbreaker off an andrew andrews buzzer beater, and now it's time to pay them back. UW was only playing 6 guys when they were in boulder, and 3 of those guys are hurt or off the team at this point. Expect to see a depleted huskies team take the floor with not much to play for.

    I'm taking out that picture. No. Added a video of what's bearing down on the puppies though.

    Maybe I'm not crazy? That line, even with Dogs struggles.... surprising. Damn I hope we play together on the road. That would be a huge stride to turning things around. Eventually it must happen to restart the engines.

    Surprised me too. I figured we'd see it flipped and be like 1 or 2 point underdogs.

    What's home court get you in Vegas? I know it counts for 3 points in football.

    Im not blind and am well aware we are **** on the road this year, but washington is 2 games away (and one of them against utah an almost sure loss) from one of the most epic collapses that i've ever watched. Things were odd before p12 play started when they were still ranked top 20 (an L to stony brook, at home.....?) and aside from a last second shot against us, they havent won at all. They have won 4 games all year (like cu) but 3 of those games were in 7 days from jan 15-22. since CU played them though (as I mentioned up top) they are entirely different. They basically give away the paint and go short, playing a stretch 4 that's not very big. With a hurt josh and XJ, wes, DT & Tory will still eat these guys for snacks.

    Upshaw is gone, and kemp is hurt.

    I think we will be fine if our guards can get the ball inside. We are awful on the road this year, but this team is the rolling dumpster fire that everyone expected to come from eugene this year.

    Ball movement is better on offense. Sloppy finishing, but like it. It's a start

    @Jaron-this isn't street ball. You don't get extra points for dribbling like that

    Thoughts so far:

    Lots of missed layups/dunks.

    Dom next year is going to a major upgrade over Ski this year.

    Hopkins needs to do lots of dribbling drills in the off season.

    Josh's back seems much better than in a long while. Hope that continues. Moving comfortably thus far

    Especially given how sloppy they seem to be playing.

    Of course, UW looks like a defeated team and plays like one too

    Whatever Tad said to these guys after the Arizona game appears to have made an impression.

    Unfortunately, no. UW can go no better than 11th (if we hold on and win) and we cannot reach 6th to my knowledge.

    I know dogs are completely short handed, but I like that buffs are looking for each other on the floor.

    Good half. Amazes me that Gordon has no shot attempts at the half again, XJ invisible again. Hopefully scott keeps it up and booker finds his shot. Fletcher playing better last few games.

    Gordon gets the ball in the middle of the paint and just looks to pass. WTF?
