    The defense in Charleston was incredible, the Buffs play good straight up D. They were contesting every shot, denying penetration into the lane and forcing bad shots late into the shot clock. If this team can continue to do that in conference play they are going to be tough to beat (no matter how the offense plays). They held Dayton and Baylor under .9 points per possession which is phenomenal, CU only did this a hand full of times last year (and that was against teams like USC, ASU and Utah).

    Dayton0.836.7
    Baylor0.8739.8

    I think a special shout out goes to Dinwiddie, he guarded 3 solid PG's (2 elite) in 4 days and did a tremendous job on them. Yes Canaan got 21 yesterday, but a couple of those 3's he made were from deep and Dinwiddie had his hand in his face on each one, those are makes that you live with. He held Dillard and Jackson both in the low 30's% in eFG% while forcing them to turn it over about 1 out of every 4 times down the floor.

    Canaan is a pretty special player. I think he is going to score a lot this year.

    some of those shots Canaan had was incredible. Spencer played him well and closed quick, but the guy just has an incredible range.

    Tad can coach.

    He knows what he wants to do and he is able to get his players not only to do it but to buy in and believe in it. He has recruited some very good players but he has also consistenty made the players he has better. He gets the most out of each guys talent without asking them to do things that they can't do.

    Winning a tourney like this one against solid competition far from home is another one of those points in the history of a program where you can mark another significant step forward, with Tad at the helm I have no question that it won't be close to the last significant step but it is an important one.

    Exhibit A: Sabatino Chen. The transformation in this kid has been unreal. I never would have thought he'd be capable of playing the way he has.

    The student section needs to go get a bunch of 80s wigs and become the Chen-Unit

    Exhibit B: Sacky. Now Sacky is going to basketball games, watching the buffs play on the road on tv and making a bunch of posts in the basketball forum.

    All hail Tad.

    love these stats. The Mayor is so good, he doesn't just run our team, he runs the other team as well!

    I think it's part of a grand plan. Kill the football program so that fans like me have to find an outlet for our Buffs passion. That bolsters the basketball program. Then bring the football program back to life.

    At least that's what I'm hoping. While I would hate to think they'd purposely kill the football program, it gives me a little hope that this is actually all part of a masterfully orchestrated plan.

    Canaan's a special player, but his stats were also inflated by some of the scramble plays in the final 4 minutes that were outside the normal sets. He got some layups that were hardly contested.

    Plus he hit two ridiculous 3 point shots from North Carolina with The Mayor in his face. Nothing you can do there.

    As Dinwiddie noted, "Your coach doesn't tell you to take shots from 35 feet!"

    I watched the game last night, and found myself yelling and shouting like I used to do for football. It was fun.

    Yeah to of those points came off of that layup with 4 seconds to go. That shot was just a stat padding make. That actually pissed me off as a buffs fan and it would have pissed me off as a Murray State fan. A three there makes some sense but a layup makes no sense what-so-ever.
