    Askia Booker: 18 points, 8 rebounds, 7 assists, 1 steal
    Wes Gordon: 12 points, 6 rebounds, held Loveridge to 4pts/4rebs on 2/11 shooting
    Xavier Johnson: 11 points, 10 rebounds, 2 steals, 2 assists
    Josh Scott: 20 points, 10 rebounds, 3 blocked shots, 1 steal
    Xavier Talton: 14 points, 3 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 steal, 2 blocked shots

    Real team effort today. This is a tough choice.

    I agree nik. A big team effort. I gave it to Talton, since his play was soooo needed with Hopkins not playing well. However, it's hard not to say that Scott, XJ, or Ski don't deserve it just as much (plus Gordon obviously wasn't a slouch either).

    Gordon and Talton both had their biggest games. Got to go that way.

    Tough call. Pretty sure that was Talton's best game as a Buff though, he hit some big shots in the 2nd.. Seemed like Ski lead the team in turnovers today.

    Talton because he's a guy who has struggled this year with turnovers and hitting open jumpers and he came up HUGE today. You can make a very good argument for anyone you listed in the OP though, really tough choice but XT gets the game ball.

    Ski did, but it was just 4 in 43 minutes. Plus that's with 7 assists. A much worse number was Hopkins' 3 TO in 5 min.

    I voted Talton, but the whole team responded to a way too long stretch of basketball with aggressive D and some good scoring.

    I guess I went with Talton because of the 3pt shooting that we so seldom see. Scott keeps on bringing out another wrinkle every game. He is awesome and I can't wait to see just how good he will get!

    Other players had better days, but have to go with Xavier Talton. His performance was perhaps the most unexpected. Need him to contribute and improve down the stretch

    Talton was clutch today and I felt his play set the tone at important moments in the game. When he first game in he had three consecutive defensive rebounds. He played in control and hit jumpers when the Buffs really needed them.

    Gordon's job on Loveridge was great too. He was a non-factor.

    Booker played the ENTIRE game (-120 seconds). I don't think I've ever seen that. Kid is underappreciated and despite Talton's great game, Booker gets the nod.

    I think Talton gets the game ball just b/c he's had a tough year and played the best game of his life as a buff. But Ski had a great game, in the 2 mins that ski didn't play Goose leaned over to me and said, WTF is Ski not in? He's central to everything CU does right now.

    Scottt, scott's good too......
