    They're now 6-1 with the last 2 wins being by an average margin of 26.5 points. Seton Hall beat the Buffs last year by a score of 77-40.

    To borrow a line from Dan Hawkins: I think it may have finally popped for McConnell-Miller's team. :thumbsup:

    "Everyone's asked me what I'm most pleased about," McConnell-Miller said following the Buffs' atonement for last season's dismaying 37-point loss to the Pirates.

    "I'm most pleased about what's happened over a 12-month period - how our returning players have bought in, how they've engaged our younger players. I'm most pleased about our development and our progress."

    Still, avenging that December debacle in South Orange, N.J., was important to McConnell-Miller's players.

    "Last season was an embarrassment . . . it was important for us to come out today and get a 'W,'" said CU junior forward Brittany Spears, who responded with her 19th career double-double and fourth of the season. She scored 24 points and collected 12 rebounds, with her five three-pointers a career best.
