    The first 'result' of basketball season is in. *Over the weekend the men's squad was in action behind closed doors up at the CEC, taking on the DU Pioneers in a scrimmage. *According to 'sources,' *Coach Boyle and crew at the very least took care of business, beating the Pios by seven. *Not quite 1-0, but I'll call it .1-0.

    Hardcore BasketBuffs are already well aware, but NCAA rules prohibit fans, media, or other interlopers at these preseason tilts. *The idea is that these meetings are supposed to be tuneups, and that prying eyes would put too much pressure on what are essentially glorified practices. *Coach Boyle didn't seem to mind discussing the problems he saw, however,*saying,*"turnovers were an issue with this team, taking care of the basketball. [...] If we turn the ball over like we're turning it over, we're going to put a lot of pressure on our defense, and I'd rather not do that."

    That certainly sounds dire, but I wouldn't get too worked up over that less than glowing report. *It's his job to be hyper-critical at this stage, and that sounds like vintage Boyle. *Besides, I'd rather the turnovers be made when it doesn't count, with the understanding that a veteran team should be able to take care of the basketball by the time the lights turn on for real.

    10 days...

    Today in the bag, I'm talking the football meltdown against Washington, some successes in cross country, volleyball and soccer, and the 'Colorado 4' in the NBA.
