    2pm at the Keg today. Game is not televised, but you can watch the live stream at http://pac-12.com/

    Massively important game for the Buffs.

    Arizona is currently tied with us for 5th place in the conference standings at 3-2.

    Our next 4 games are on the road against the teams in 1st-4th.

    @ #7 Cal
    @ #6 Stanford
    @ #14 UCLA
    @ USC (only 7-9 due to a brutal OOC schedule they weren't ready for, but 4-1 in conference play)

    Plus, Stanford plays USC today while Cal plays UCLA. With a win, we go into this road trip tied for 2nd place (1 game back of 1st place).

    I will be watching from a very cold Iowa--7 degrees when I got up this morning.

    We need this game before the two weekends in California.

    Lappe said Arizona is a better team than Arizona State. Need to find more offense. Our defense is fine.

    Linda has done an unbelievable job in such a short time. I have talked basketball with her at a few MBB games and she's impressive. Probably not coincidental, but her philosophies seem to parallel TB's.

    79-36 FINAL

    That's about as well as a team can play. Buffs had everything going today.

    If we can approach this level over the next 4, we'll be in position to win the conference.

    I will be ecstatic with 2-2 over the next 4 games. Happily shocked at more.

    This is definitely a top 4 Pac12 team though and a NCAA tourney team. They just keep getting better.

    This team is better every week. The margin of victory was the largest since 1995! Remember the kind of teams CU had back then? I hope the team can represent themselves well on the road the next two weekends.

    I am so impressed with how different today's game was from Friday's. Friday's was about Chucky. This was a team win with three players in double figures and lots of players scoring.

    Can they win on the road against ranked teams?

    Boom. Excellent.

    Time to find a way to go 2-2 in Cali.

    As long as we don't get upset from any teams in the bottom 6, the way it looks right now the three most important games for CU will be @USC, @UCLA and UW. We only play each one time. All 4 teams should be 4-2 in Conf. play after today with CU/USC/UCLA losing to Cal/Stan, and UW losing to USC/UCLA.

    CU, USC and UCLA each play Cal and Stanford twice. UW gets a huge break and only has to play them once.

    Gonna be fun to watch this CU team down the stretch!

    This was the most complete, most dominating game I have seen the Buffs play in years. To start the game it seemed like they just kept getting really good shots and they were all going in. Everyone was on her game and it looked like they were all having fun. I hope they can continue to play like that these next two weekends and come back with some wins out of the 4 Cali games.

    Didn't see this coming! I would guess neither did Arizona. I figured CU would win the game by around 10 points. Once after the first few minutes of feeling each other out the Buffs simply dominated in every fashion.

    32 bench points for the Buffs 44 points in the paint, a 51-26 rebounding margin. All 11 healthy scholarship players played well.

    Chucky now has 1400 career points, 800 rebounds and 400 assists. The first player in CU history to reach this milestone.

    This was just an excellent all around team effort. Great to see. No need for Chucky to dominate and the bench got lots of time.
