    There are 45 students at Coors right now (I counted). The same seats were filled an hour before the KU game a week ago.

    Andre Roberson almost a double double in the first half. He's been so impressive this year

    With the limited exposure I've had to CU hoops, I can't understand why Roberson isn't starting. Dufault should be a role guy coming off the bench. Does Tad have a point guard recruited? Tomlinson isn't the answer. Good to see the bball program on the upswing.

    i was there. sparse crowd. HOWEVER, in the cheapies with Mick were Coaches Embree and Bienemy. upper section 7, bleachers. They demolished some hot dogs and EB was on the phone a lot of the time, texting, took a couple pics of the court. Recruiting stuff.

    i left since i had a long walk home at -6 degrees and some work to do before i go to bed, gotta get up early. Buffs up 15 at the half.

    1$ pizza night was kind of a scam....coupon? i don't need no stinkin' coupon.

    Andre was denied a double double. Mostly because he didn't make his free throws but played well. The bench was pretty excited about playing at the end and nearly pushed it to 100 points, but it was a good game for us. Iowa state is going to have difficultly beating anyone in the Big 12 if they can't push any harder.

    One thing that really helped this game was Tomlinson, who hasn't much of the Big 12 season. Iowa State simply did not have enough quality players to guard everyone so he was open a good amount of the game and took advantage of it. He went

    One thing of concern remains our three point defense. Garrett was 5 for 5 in the first half on three pointers. We cannot go into Kansas or Missouri without decent guarding of the three point line. Iowa State shot 42.5% behind the three point line. Baylor shot 46% and Kansas shot 41%.

    Onto Missouri on Saturday!

    Wow, did not see the Buffs winning 95-69 tonight. About time we had some things go right - i was pleased to see the team not lose focus after building a big lead (for the second time). A strange game though - CU runs of 16-0 and 17-0 in the first half. The Buffs started playing as a team again, and the results were clear. There were some beautiful passes made. Burks did his thing getting a double double, and Roberson was only one point from a double double. As much as I have criticized Tomlinson in the past, his game has improved lately.

    One of my buddies who watched on TV told me that they were talking about how while players like Higgins are quiet after losses, Andre Roberson gets the most visibly upset in the locker room afterwards. While of course one needs to stay level-headed, it's great to see that passion coming from Andre.

    Crowd wasn't good tonight, but I understand with it being -10 outside. However it's very important to pack the CEC for the aTm and KSU games on 2/9 and 2/12. These are the biggest games of the season. Halfway through conf play we're 4-4 - i'll take it. It's going to be tough in Columbia on Saturday but we match up well with the #14 Tiggers (17-4, 3-3) and should have some confidence after beating them a few weeks ago. Still a lot of opportunity left in this season sitting at 15-8 (4-4), just a shame our RPI isn't higher right now.

    Go Buffs!!

    The student section was fine but other than that I agree with you.

    Injuries and suspensions have really hampered ISU after a great start to the season. They completely shot themselves in the foot losing very close games to TT and OU in Ames before the game tonight. Christopherson is a very solid player for them - the key tonight was that Vanderbeken never got going for the 'Clones. When he's firing on all cylinders some nights they will be much more successful (I watched him single handedly destroy UVA in Charlottesville in an ISU blowout a month ago). They're definitely in trouble now at 1-7, but they will fight back and get to 5-11 or even 6-10 in the league. It will be a different game in Ames, although I like our chances to get a crucial road win there. I like Fred Hoiberg, I think he's a big step up for ISU over that clown who left for Creighton.

    Buffs need quality wins, badly -- Beat Mizzou!!

    Big fan of the Mayor. Great Nickname. ISU is lousy, but still a good W for the Buffs. I love Roberson, he does so much for this team. Nice to end the losing streak. The crowd was actually a little better than I expected, coming off the 4 game losing streak with the miserable cold. I left without about 6 minutes left, I figured I'd seen enough.

    Good win for sure, especially by 26. ISU has won 14 games this season with some very close losses in OT and a 5 point loss to KU. CU needs to beat a couple of the tourney teams here and avoid anymore questionable losses to Texas Tech and ISU (this will be tough since they're road games) Luckily the loss to the Corn doesn't look particularly bad anymore, and even OU has climbed to 3-3 in the league. A 20-plus win season whether it comes through the NIT or not would be a good accomplishment given the Buffs were 15-16 (6-10) last season
