    The Men's team is now 2-0 against Arizona. Tonight, the Women will attempt to match this as CU continues to assert its dominance over Zona basketball.

    THE GAME: No. 21 (AP)/25 (USA Today Sports/Coaches) ranked University of Colorado travels to play the University of Arizona on Friday, Feb. 15, at 7 p.m. at the McKale Center in Tucson.

    BROADCAST: Friday’s game will be broadcast live on KKZN AM 760. Mike Rice will have the play-by-play. A live video stream will be available on the Pac-12 Digital platform at Pac-12.com. All CU women’s basketball home games, and select road Pac-12 games, that are not televised will be available through Pac-12.com. Friday’s game is available at this link: http://pac-12.com/live/arizonawildcats.aspx. The live stream is free to the public and not tied to a Pac-12 Network carrier.

    ABOUT THE BUFFALOES: Colorado is 18-5 overall and in fifth place in the Pac-12 at 7-5. CU has surpassed its Pac-12 win total from 2012 with six regular season games remaining. The Buffaloes finished in 10th place at 6-12 in their inaugural season in the league. The Buffaloes are two games behind Washington (9-3) for fourth place. CU does have a favorable schedule to stay in the race for a coveted top four seed at the 2013 Pac-12 Tournament as the Buffaloes only have one remaining game - at home vs. Washington on Feb. 24 - against a team above them in the standings.

    ABOUT THE WILDCATS: Arizona is 11-12 overall and tied with Arizona State and Oregon State for ninth in the Pac-12 at 3-9. The Wildcats have lost seven straight, a streak that started with the Colorado game in Boulder, a 79-36 CU win, on Jan. 20. Five of those losses came on the road, and four of those to ranked teams, including the Buffaloes. Beginning Friday, Arizona will finish with 5-of-6 at home.

    Of note is that #19 Florida State lost at home last night to a .500 NC State team. Buffs have an opportunity to move up in the rankings. Also keep an eye on #20 Delaware and #17 Dayton. Voters seem to be very hesitant to advance non-Power 6 teams much in the women's polls and the Buffs should jump them if we keep winning.

    Also, we didn't have a prayer of being on PACN tonight. #6 Cal is at #15 UCLA the same time we're playing.

    30-23 Buffs at the half.

    Lappe's got to be pissed. Allowed Zona to go on an 8-0 run to close the 1st.

    CU wins 55-42

    CU did not look great tonight offensively. Defensively as usual they were strong. Az not very good. Let's hope for a sweep of the AZ schools!

    One of the worst games they've played all season. Nothing glaring in any phase of the game, just a flat effort. You're gonna have some of those, so I can't really complain when we have one on the road and come away with a solid win.

    A couple years ago we would have been jumping for joy with a 13 pt conference road win. Now we are, meh. This is a very good thing! :nod:

    Wow. Times are good when a poor game leads to a 13 point conference road win. Let's finish up winning every remaining game. We got this. Beat the Sun Devils -- and let's get back to playing excellent basketball

    Listening to Lappe on the post-game radio show... she was not happy with the turnovers. Probably indicative of the flat play. But she felt that, on offense, the shot selection was good, just didn't get some good looks to fall. We definitely won this game on D.

    Defense wins and this team knows it. I love watching defense. I will take a road win. On to Sunday and another win.

    Delaware was #11 in the preseason AP poll. They have one of the top WBB players in Elena DelleDonne on that team. Their ranking fell because she was out for a while dealing with a relapse of lyme disease and they had trouble winning without her. She's 6'5" and can play pretty much any positon plus is one of the best scorers in the WBB game. I don't see them losing as long as she is healthy and they will likely stay ahead of us. Don't know about Dayton. But as long as CU keeps winning, they should be in very good position for a decent NCAA seed and a shot at advancing to the Sweet 16 with round 1 and 2 games at home at the keg.

    As long as DelleDonne doesn't have a relapse, Delaware will win out their conference. She is an incredible basketball player and fun to watch play. I still love the way she told Geno family was more important to her than UConn. After all the stuff she took for leaving UConn by the former players and fans, I wish her nothing but the best in her basketball career.

    We're hosting. Unless we fall flat on our face, we're in.
