    In happier news...

    While the mens team has been struggling with some identity issues, their hoops playing partners in the CEC have been tearing up the court. Off to their best start since the early 90's, the CU womens basketball team is lapping their male counterparts in the early goings of the season. Sitting pretty at 8-0 on the year, they're lead by second year coach Linda Lappe, and are starting to remind me of the good ole days when the womens program could be counted on for a guaranteed Tournament appearance each season.

    Coach Lappe and her staff have the squad headed in the right direction. From: the BDC
    The renaissance has been lead by the stellar play of junior Chucky Jeffery. The 5-10 guard from The Springs is averaging close to a double-double with 18.5/9 each night, and her performance is allowing the program to ease through the pain of losing all-time leading scorer Brittany Spears.

    Chucky has been a do-it-all sensation for the Buffs this year. From: the BDC
    Supporting her efforts are a pair of fresh(wo)men who are part of the vanguard class in a wave of quality incoming talent brought in by Coach Lappe. Guard Lexy Kresl and forward Jen Reese have combined for 20/9 each night, and look to be setting a tone of quality performance for years to come. Add their play to an incoming recruiting class rated as one of the top-20 in the country, and the future is very bright for the ladies up on campus.

    All I'm saying is that Lexy and the rest of the team know how to beat CSU on the road; time to give them some long over-due credit. From: BDC
    Barring an epic collapse against Weber St this Saturday, CU will finish the home portion of their non-conference schedule with a crystal clean 9-0 record. Only a trip to the UTSA Holiday Classic would then stand between the team and a perfect run through their non-con slate. While non-conference play for the Buffs has been filled with less than stellar competition, a perfect record is nothing to scoff at.

    While we'll really see what this team is made of come the start of conference play in January, it's good to note that the Buffs have clocked each of their eight previous opponents by double figures. All told, they average a winning margin of almost 20 points/game. If you're going to play questionable competition, you might as well smack them around a little bit.

    If you're ready to be caught up with the so-far perfect Buffs (and you should be), you should check them out this Saturday against the WSU Wildcats. If you can't make it to the CEC on Saturday, you won't have another chance to see them play in person until after the Holidays, as the next home game is January 12th against Cal.

    Keep up the good work, ladies![​IMG]

    I would like to point out that the opponents haven't all been bad. CU put a serious beat down on DU by 35 pts. A couple days later DU (now 7-3) beat a 6-1 PAC12 team (Ducks) by 24 pts!

    I would have called the win over DU a good win if they had won by 2! I call a 35 pt win over DU a great win!

    Go Buffs!
