    Friday: Colorado Buffaloes (6-2) at Missouri (6-2), 6 p.m., at Mizzou Arena.
    Broadcast: Radio — KKZN (760 AM). Online — Streamed on SEC + allowing fans to watch on the WatchESPN App or WatchESPN.com.

    This is a big one for the resume. Missouri's a solid opponent. Road game right at finals & winter break. Never know who's going to be on/off her game tonight for either side.

    33-21 at the half.

    Just looking at stats tonight- L. Kresl leading the way at the half with 8 points (2-3 from 3), with 4 others at 4 points each.

    Buffs up on or even with the Tigers in every stat category, and outshooting them 43% to 27%.

    Keep it up Buffs- peddle to the metal til the end!

    Great D. Glad to see Lexy rediscovered her shooting stroke to get out of that mini slump.

    Got to be right up there as the best half our Buffs have played this season.

    Uh oh. Only 40-35 with ~11 minutes left. Buffs with only 7 points in 9 minutes to start the 2nd half.

    Ouch- Buffs lose 53-50.

    Only 17 points in the 2nd half. And, for Buff's bball in general, "road" has definitely been a 4 letter word so far this season.

    Nice to see them close to winning on the road! BUT as Rick George said about football, we've got to win games. Quite honestly, these frustrating losses after a big lead are too reminiscent of a disappointing football season. I put this one on the coaching staff. When you have the lead, put them away.

    No more excuses for womens basketball. Just win!! :)

    Um . . . the prediction of 10th in the Pac 12 is looking about right. The loss at Mizzou was another example of the issues that have been plaguing the Buffs for a while, meaning last season as well. Failure to go for the kill when opening up a double digit lead. How many times has this happened? Even in the NCAA year they would let big leads dwindle, but this season, like last, it spells doom.

    For those that watched the game online, why did Jamee play so few minutes? She was listed in the box score with 3 fouls, so there must have been something else. Injury? Matchup issues? Something else?

    Good thing the Wyo game is in Boulder and not Laramie.

    This game was given to Mizzou by our failure to play the second half.

    Jamee got 2 early fouls in the first half and sat most of that half. Only Kresl was effective in the second half and that does not win games.
