    If you like defensive basketball (or are a Big 10 fan), I hope you weren't watching last night.* The Buffs and Ducks combined for 171 points on over 54% shooting, as they strained the scoreboard through the 90-81 Oregon win.* Can't somebody please have the common decency to miss an open jumper!

    It's painful to think about the fact that the Buffs were up five at half, shooting 63%, and silencing the home Oregon crowd in the process.* The Ducks, however, took the Buffs example and only improved on it, scoring 54 points on 65% shooting in the second half.* Are we sure those rims were regulation size?

    The offense was so contagious that even slumping Buffs guard Carlon Brown regained his scoring touch, as he provided 20 points on 8-11 shooting (3-3 from deep).* 'Dre was close to his season averages, dropping 12/8, and probably only missed yet another double-double due to no one missing a damn jumper all night long.

    The reports of Carlon's demise were clearly mistaken.* Hopefully his performance carries over into next week.* From: the BDC.
    Duck stars Devoe Joseph and Garrett Sim combined for 43 points on 17-26 shooting, including 7-11 from beyond the arc.* They decimated the Buffs perimeter defense, and kept any hopes of a CU comeback at bay.

    I was shocked to find that Joseph and Sim did in fact miss some shots last night.* From: the BDC
    Other than the glaring defensive stats, there were some other cracks in the Buffs effort last night.* After a week in Boulder spent holding onto the basketball (only 11 combined turnovers against Cal and Stanford), CU got back to coughing the ball up, allowing 27 points on 15 TO's.* Additionally, the Buffs allowed 11 offensive rebounds.

    The Buffs simply didn't play enough defense to win.* While the offense looked about as good as it has all season, you can't allow a home team to shoot over 60% in the second half and expect to win.* With any hope of a first-round bye probably dashed, the only thing left to do is go for that 20th win against Oregon State.

    Speaking of which, tip-off from Corvallis is set for 2pm tomorrow.* The regular-season finale can be seen on FSN/ROOT affiliates, while Mark Johnson will have the radio call on 760 AM.

    My preview of the first game can be found here.
