    1. Build 10+ point lead in first ten minutes
    2. Let the other team close the gap
    3. Regroup and head to half time with lead
    4. Come out strong in the first 10 minutes of the second, build big 15+ point lead
    5. Shut it down about (what seems like) 2 minutes too early
    6. Hold on for dear life
    7. Huge Carlon Brown tomahawk slam
    8. Hold on tighter for dear life
    9. Advance
    10. (Profit).

    You should probably also add some steps about missing FTs

    I think the life expectancy on the front range just dropped about 1% per person.

    That's all part of "hold on tighter for dear life."

    What got us through the Pac-12 Tourney was taking care of the ball. We were under 10 TOs a game for that run. We regressed tonight.

    True enough. Now we have spring training, Saint Paddy's and CU-Baylor. It could be more like a month.

    Don't forget about the part where we cause the other coach to freak out and use all of their timeouts with 10 minutes left in the game.

    I've seen this movie and various sequels. Awesome franchise. There are some important formula bit characters, too.

    1) timeslot after east coast is in bed
    2) clueless TV announcers who blow smoke up opponents skirts
    3) opposition that mocks CU's lack of quality wins
    4) discussion of Pac 12 being a weak conference
    5) rival with more basketball tradition and tournament hardware
    6) ballyhooed rival star player with a disappointing night
    7) rival message board banter certain that CU is a crappy team, was a lucky draw and will go down big
    8) allegations that CU fans travel poorly
    9) C-Unit storms the place and creates buzz
    10) OMG moment by opponent that their players are weak of heart, their travelling fans let them down, their coach should be fired, the refs suck, and the Buffs are still a crappy team.
