    Grumble, grumble, grumble...

    Last night's affair in Berkeley left me with a restless night of sleep and a sour stomach. *The Buffs were so close, so damn close, to earning one hell of a hard fought victory that would put an exclamation point on their fantastic start to conference play. *A one-point game with a minute left is a situation I think any Buff fan would've taken going in, but it was not to be. *A scoreless final minute, and*the*Cal Golden*Bears*walk away with a bloody 57-50 win

    Turnovers, weak second-half rebounding, and poor shooting plagued the Buffs. *Conversely, suffocating defense, Andre Roberson, and Austin Dufault were pretty fantastic. *The good with the bad; a winnable game against a damn tough opponent on the road lost to the ether. *I just wish the young Buffs had more of a chance to study this game to learn from it, because they played well enough to win, and now just need to figure out how to finish a game like that off.

    The*cruel*reality of the schedule won't allow any time for reflection, however. *It's immediately on to Palo Alto and a tilt with the surprising Stanford Cardinal. *CU needs a win Saturday afternoon to salvage a split from the trip to San Francisco, and keep momentum flowing on the trip back to the friendly confines of the CEC.

    Tip-off from Maples Pavilion is set for 2pm on Saturday. *You Boulderites with cable are in luck, because this game is set for broadcast on Root Sports. *If you can't find that, you definitely need to upgrade your television package, but you can also try Mark Jonson and the gang on 760AM.
