    they both came to play, unlike the majority of the team. Without them, we suffer an incredibly embarrassing loss, which would have really put a severe damper on the season, if not ruined it.

    Brown has his game back - his offense looks very good, and he made several great defensive plays tonight. Roberson saved our ass tonight in the first half - great rebounding and, surprisingly, good free throw shooting. The two of them scored 35 points of our 53 points, almost 70%! Talk about a lack of balance.

    Did we even run an offense tonight???? Tomlinson and Booker were absolutely terrible. Booker played very selfishly. Dufault and Dinwiddie were mediocre. Adams is unimaginably bad on offense - he just runs defenders over.

    It's tough to win against anyone when only two players bring their A game. But, this our 20th win!

    I don't have high hopes against Oregon but we'll see.

    Mostly Dre. All we have to do to beat Oregon is follow the scouting report AKA don't help off of Sim.

    To be fair, we never really run a traditional offense. Coming from a Ricardo background, that scares me a bit, but I trust in Tad.

    Booker trying to play way above himself, he just doesn't have the handles yet. Been turning the ball over way too much. His aggressiveness can spark the offense but he needs to settle down.

    Tomlinson was off tonight too.

    Tomorrow could be rough, this team has trouble showing up on the road.

    The announcers were talking tonight about Dinwiddie not getting too fired up and trying to do too much coming home to play in the conference tourney. I think Booker was the exact opposite. Hopefully he got it out of his system tonight...

    Meh. That is the case with every single team in basketball at any level. You have 1 or 2 guys that need to perform for your team to win on a consistent basis.

    Bolded. Cannot stress enough. Nate was the only one who read the damn scouting report last time apparently as both the frosh wandered aimlessly out there. That can't happen tonight if we are to have any shot at winning.

    I think it could go both ways depending on what Tad wanted to do; help off Sims and double Joseph or don't help off Sims because he can drain the 3. That being said, I can understand how it could be difficult to defend against. Nate played like 5hit against JuteCo and needs to step up and redeem himself tonight in what could be his last game. The first 10min of the game last night was horrendous, hopefully we come out hot tonight and finish strong.

    Also, what's up with the two teams in MT starting the latest(9:45ish tip off)? You would think a game with both teams from the PT would garner that honor. Larry's one FAIL thus far.

    Tonight won't be the last game of the season either way.

    Go Buffs!

    Andre took charge and won this game, Buffs were a headcase up to then, great leadership

    Carlon's mojo is back! Yes, good timing.

    If I remember right Woods fouled out with 10 minutes to go in Boulder, hope we get a repeat on this. Yes, that little guy Sims needs to be shadowed wherever he is. Joseph is a handful no matter how you approach it.

    I'll be surprised if they are dropping 3's with their eyes closed this time, but the Buffs aren't in Boulder either and ducks are well rested

    Go Buffs!

    Only difference is Tad's offense sets screens, will pick and roll, give and go, etc. Not sure Ricardo knew what that was.

    Dre is playing like he's a little pissed off he wasn't named Pac-12 DPOY. He got absolutely robbed and he's making a statement.

    Hmmmm, just heard that the ACC poty was the league's leading rebounder and leading shot-blocker.
