    Remember back, all the way back, to March of 2010.* The Buffs beat Texas Tech on the final day of the regular season in a game that meant nothing.* The two were destined to play in the upcoming Big XII Tournament, and the game really only decided who would be the designated "home team" the following Wednesday.

    Ah, memories. *From: the BDC
    Tonight's game against Oregon is slightly reminiscent.* Barring an extensive set of circumstances, CU and Oregon will be in line to face off in the quarter-finals of next week's Pac-12 Tournament.* All the loser would have to do is beat crippled USC in the opening round to secure a 3rd meeting.* While tonight's game will probably determine who enjoys a first round bye next week, leading to a discussion of big picture/title-run implications, the immediate effect is minimal.

    Regardless of tonight's result, the Buffs and Ducks should see each other again one week from today.

    Of course, the hardiest of Buff Nation can easily recall the result of the Texas Tech duel from two years ago.* While the Buffs scored that nice win over Tech in Boulder, the rematch in Kansas City was completely different.* The Raiders regrouped, and clocked CU by 15.* NIT hopes were dashed, and the Red Raiders, who had lost seven straight prior to that game in KC, moved on to face KU.* I'm sure the loser tonight hopes that history repeats next week in Los Angeles.

    While that Tech game was essentially meaningless, tonight's game does hold plenty of importance.* The winner does get that vital first-round bye to rest their late season legs.* Additionally, Coach Boyle is going for his 100th career win as a head coach, and the Buffs are still in search of their second-consecutive 20-win season.

    There's plenty on the table to play for.

    Tip-off from the eye-achingly ugly floor of the MATT is set for 8:30.* The action can be seen on ROOT/FSN.* If the crazy floor design scares you away, you can listen to Mark Johnson and the radio call on 760AM.

    My preview of the first game can be seen here.
