    QUICKLY
    : The Buffaloes have now won four straight season openers, and 15 of their last 16 openers • CU last started the season 2-0 in 2009-10 when they won their first three games (all at home) • Andre Roberson grabbed 15 rebounds against Fort Lewis College, the most since he grabbed 15 against Iowa State (Mar. 9) • Roberson's sixth career double-double, Dufault's second.[/FONT]

    [FONT=Cambria, serif]
    HOME COURT ADVANTAGE
    : CU has won 25-consecutive home games in non-conference play. The Buffs were 12-0 last season, 8-0 in 2009-10, and won their last four in 2008-09. The 25-game streak ranks second all-time in school history. The Buffs won 35 in a row at home from Dec. 4, 1976 thru Dec. 5, 1981. [/FONT]

    SEASON OPENER
    : CU placed four players in double figures en route to an 85-57 home win over Fort Lewis College, Nov. 11 at the Coors Events Center. Senior Austin Dufault (18 pts., 10 rebs.) and sophomore Andre Roberson (13 pts., 15 rebs.) recorded double-doubles, with senior Carlon Brown (13 pts.) and junior-transfer reserve Sabatino Chen (10 pts.) leading the point total. Fort Lewis College plays in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference was led by Matt Billups with 23 points. CU shot 50 percent in the first half (49.2% for the game) and out-rebounded the Skyhawks 48-31 on the boards. The pair of double-doubles in one game matches last year when Roberson and Alec Burks did the feat against Kent State in the NIT quarterfinals.[/FONT]

This is CU's second trip to San Juan and last made the trip in November 1998. The Buffs lost to Kentucky (64-52) and Xavier (74-61), and defeated American-Puerto Rico (101-56). CU last won a mid-season tourney in 2003 when they won the Pepsi Classic in Charlotte defeating Louisiana-Lafayette (75-56), Charlotte (76-74) and Loyola-Chicago (76-72).[/FONT]

    ************************************************************

    First test of the season. We're playing a tournament team here, and one that honestly could be in the top 25 at one point this season. It's going to be a good test to see just how we stack up. Honestly, I hate to be a downer, but I just don't see us getting it done. I think Wichita State out-executes us and keeps a steady 10 point lead throughout that we can never quite get over. Here's hoping I'm wrong.

    Not sure if this is fully reliable, however an ESPN poster that claims to have a connection into the program is saying that Nate did not travel with the team due to missing a team meeting. Not sure if any of you can look into that but that definitely hurts our 3pt shot. While Nate isn't extremely consistent, he is the best guy we have outside the arc.

    We didn't fall for it so Tini spread his false rumors on ESPN.

    lookin at the dudes profile, makes sense. Follows Bama, Michigan, FSU, and CU. Sounds like a tini list.

    Pretty cute that each of tini's favorite team is in a different BCS conference to try cover his bases. He forgot Missouri from the BigXII tho.

    Anyways, back on topic. GO BUFFS!!

    is this for real? That is so funny, and honestly sad.

    I loved the buffs college, but I definitely spent less than 5% of my energy on football/sports, 15% on school and 80% on chicks and partying. I think tinis got it flipped

    I am pretty sure this is just the sports media people's predictions (basically what it was the game before). I was curious if Tad released his lineup in a press conference or something. I doubt it though

    Sorry have a midterm today and procrastinated on the ESPN boards. Wednesday isn't exactly a party day, even less when you have to study and are sick.

    It must be difficult to be the parent of a Shocker fan.
