    GAME #36
    vs. California Golden Bears (18-4, 10-8 Pac-10) Friday, March 18, 7:32 p.m. (MST)

    Television: ESPNU Dan McLaughlin (p-b-p), Miles Simon (analyst)

    Radio: 850 KOA (pregame at 7:05 pm): Mark Johnson (p-b-p), Andy Lindahl (analyst)

    Series vs. California: The Golden Bears lead 9-7, however are 1-5 in Boulder. Schools last played Dec. 7, 2004 (CU, 63-60 at Berkeley)

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

    No real preview, just beat these ****tards!

    But I wanted to add that it's a milestone night:

    1. A 23rd win would set a school record for a season
    2. Alec Burks is 20 points behind Cliff Meely for the most points in a single season
    3. Cory Higgins is 42 points from 2nd place Donnie Boyce, 47 from 2,000 & 48 points behind Richard Roby for CU all-time scoring - a win will put these in reach
    4. Andre Roberson is on pace to be the 1st freshman to ever lead the Buffs in rebounding (7.8), steals (1.4) and blocked shots (1.1)

    Glad you're making it tonight and committing for next year!

    Assuming we win, try to get to the Dark Horse after the game tonight to celebrate.

    Thanks for catching that. :lol:

    And that dude was one hell of a punter back in the day.

    Tickets are still available. Definitely head up to the game. You'll be able to get a decent seat tonight and we need to make all the noise we can since we won't have many students there. It will definitely help the team in this one to have another voice cheering.

    Anyone interested in going should call the ticket office and set up a Will Call pickup.

    What amazed me about Reggie Roby was how his plant foot never left the ground. I didn't realize he was dead.

    Funkin A! I cannot get the game on radio because of licensing issues they cannot broadcast outside of the US. I am in Vienna Austria on business and I am out of furking luck! Will go to chat but you guys got to help a brotha out and post some sweet updates. Cannot believe I stayed up until after 2 AM local and cannot listen to the game. An they do not have ESPN NU (or ESPN for that matter) on TV. Ouch!

    Cal is missing some key players, but I think this will be a good game. Cal is at least used to playing competition at the level of the Buffs.

    We have more offensive rebounds than they have rebounds. I'd be pretty cool if that stat continues

    Marcus is having a very good game thus far.


    I've been as critical of him as anyone for his decisions/shot selections etc. But I would very much like to see him go off on a good note (i.e., with an NIT championship and a good performance in that tournament!). :nod:
