    Tickets on sale today... With Northern Colo the opponent, I expect they will have a bunch of fans there. Let's make sure our Buffs still get the home court feel from the crowd.

    A lot of Colorado kids on the No Colo roster so I expect they will see good support here. Come on Buff fans, come out tonight and support the ladies as they try for another deep post-season run. We all saw what outstanding fan support can do for a team.

    Also, when the Buffs beat UNC, the site of the next game will largely be dependent on attendance. Need lots of fans at Coors tonight!!!

    Just gotta keep in mind it is a completely different style of Basketball (unless your Baylor...but then again Griner could play on quite a few men's teams), that being said Chucky Jeffery (#23) Lexy Kresl (#1) and Brittany Wilson (#11) are ballers, each one of them can take over a game at times. I am excited to see how good Arielle Roberson is for the women. Anything like her brother and the women could be very good next year.

    Well, there you go .... for next year, remember that attendance at the WBB games also counts towards the number of games attended for the students ... at least I think it did .... they had a student check-in table near the student entrance to the CECC. I know that several of the costumed C-Unit gang were at most of the WBB games this season, along with others.

    I'm getting uncomfortable. We've scored 8 points in 10 1/2 minutes.
