    5pm on Pac-12 Network.

    Buffs are 15-5 (4-3)
    Devils are 14-5 (3-3)

    This game is really big for conference standings. A win would keep the Buffs well-positioned for a Pac-12 Tourney bye.

    Prediction: Scott dominates the Buttchin and CU rolls in Tempe.

    I'm thinking we pull off the win and start off a good stretch.

    Critical game for both teams. Josh Scott needs to continue to be a beast in the post and somebody has to hit some perimeter shots. Will XJ be hot again? He seems to be streaky.

    Not sure why but I felt pretty confident about CU covering the spread against UofA. Even though I'm predicting a victory here, my confidence about beating the spread isn't the same.

    Hard to say which team it's a better game for. Both teams need this win. That said, because it's a road game for CU and post-Spencer game, I think a win for CU will do more.

    You're predicting a win, but think we lose by 6 or more?

    He usually doesn't know what he's talking about, so I'm not sure why I still get confused by him.

    Did the announcer just say the refs need to be careful how the officiate because it would be bad if Bachin**** was out of the game?

    If it's a foul, it's a foul, eat ****.

    They absolutely said that. Apparently, they don't think it's fair if he's called for body contact.

    Our guard play is ****.

    I wonder how bad Ski's home/road splits are this year.

    Talton and Stalzer on the floor. The least dangerous backcourt in the country, maybe?

    All the coaches are - both teams. Must be some sort of charity or disease-awareness thing.

    wow bad defense so far, ASU just loads up the strong side and drive around and get a layup on the weak side.

    The bench players sure are getting minutes. And ASU getting uncontested layups

    Offense is just brutal. Can't get open looks and can't finish strong around the basket. Only positive I can think of is it's still a game.

    this team is just so hard to watch now. They are playing like the team that lost at Arizona last year. The effort is just not there.
