    2:30pm Mountain Time, Pac-12 Network

    Buffs are 9-7 (2-2)

    Devils are 8-9 (0-4)

    Absolutely huge game for CU. Zero road wins on the season. Have to change that TODAY. Buffs can move to 10-7 (3-2) with a Top 70 RPI and 13 conference games left (7 at home) with those brutal UA and UU road games out of the way. Win and our Buffs position themselves to get onto the bubble with a Pac-12 run. Losing is not an option.

    Very important game. Losses at UU and UA are expected. A loss to ASU isn't, regardless of venue. Must win his game, come home and take out the two Washington teams and sit at 5-2.

    won't be decided until just before game. I think we win w/o significant minutes from JS and XJ.

    Ankles heal w/in a few weeks, back problems sometimes never do, they just get "manageable" for periods of time. I really hope Josh gets well soon

    What's it like to make it through a season without killer injuries? I'm forgetting. Somehow most teams do it every year, but not CU. What a ****ing killer, this gane is huge

    This is a character game. If Boyle and the Buffs find a way to win one on the road w/o XJ and Jelly, it will take character and heart from someone in addition to Askia.

    I am ready for any number of players occupying a spot on the roster to rise to the occasion and make a statement worthy of the Colorado name.

    My prediction:
    CU: 62
    AZ St. 60

    Booker: 21 and 5
    Gordon: 10 and 12
    Hopkins: 10
    Fletcher: 7

    That guy took about 6 steps on that jump stop and non-pivot shuffle on that layup. WTF?

    Ski with the nice pull-up on the break. Needed him to be feeling it today (obviously).

    Yep. Other than Ski, he looks the most natural on a strong drive to the rim.

    He's from nearby and the players ate with his family last night - he's got to be amped

    Eli's had some good minutes in the last couple of games. I felt like I should mention that since I can have a tendency to bag on him.

    I wish Tory would go up strong on the offensive board - unfortunately he horribly mistimed a potential offensive rebound on the next possession.

    Stalzer's minutes have been very positive since the back third of last season. He's either invisible (doesn't hurt the team) or makes several positive plays in his limited time.

    We've had 3 traveling calls on us in less than a quarter of the game. I'd be mad at a 6th grade team for that.
