    CU's defense has held its two opponents to just 59 points per game and allowed only 33 percent shooting. The Buffaloes have forced 42 opponent turnovers through two games, and their turnover margin of plus-7 ranks at the top of the Pac-12 Conference in the early season rankings.

    This is an important game for the Buffs to win tomorrow. Might be their toughest test in the non-conference. With a win, being undefeated heading into conference play becomes a real possibility.

    Kresl really sounds like she's playing at a high basketball IQ for a freshman. She's a good one.

    Also, we're starting to get a lot of production from our frontcourt.

    48-29 Buffs.

    60-47 Buffs with a little over 4 1/2 to go.

    CSU on a 9-2 run to make it interesting.

    Way to close it out!

    Nice run and great defense to end the game.

    72-53 Buffs win!!!!

    3-0. Next up is hosting Valpo at the Omni Hotels Classic. That should be a win. If we get it, championship game will be either Wisconsin or Montana State. We should handle either of those teams, but hope for Wisconsin due to the RPI boost from playing a Big 10 team.

    Sounded like a very nicely played game from the radio broadcast. Big improvement on the FT shooting %. Balanced scoring and Chucky leading the way. I think I get to watch the tournament games online instead of just listen. Love my Lady Buffs!

    I'm super late to this thread, but I couldn't help chiming in about Lexy. Obviously the first half against Northern Arizona showed what she's capable of from long range, plus Buffnik is totally right -- she seems extremely savvy. But what really stood out to me against CSU was her ability to drive and dish. She had just four assists, but each of them was pretty and showed up on the CU highlight reel -- plus she had no turnovers and went 5 for 5 from the line. What an amazing compliment to her outside shooting ability, if she can keep it up.

    Great game by the whole team. It's always nice to beat CSU, and it definitely boosted my confidence in the post-Spears balanced approach.

    As a side note, I saw Lauren Huggins at the past two in-state games, and she was accompanied by Jamee Swan at the Northern Arizona game. Not to be all sentimental, but it made me smile about how quickly this program is progressing.

    As it should! We need a team to get back to consistent top 25 status!

    It sounds like all four of our frosh should be solid contributors for years. Lexy has been amazing so far, Jen Reese has been averaging 11 & 5 and there were quite a few people in pre-season talking about how Sborov is going to be a good player for us. really hoping that Roberson comes back from her injury soon because I'd love to see what she could do.
