Live internet audio of all CU basketball games is available on BuffsRadio, a free subscription service through CUBuffs.com. Live internet video streaming of Sunday's game is available on BuffsTV, also a subscription service through CUBuffs.com. Please note the BuffsRadio audio and BuffsTV video are separate subscriptions.

    MEN TO BE RECOGNIZED: The CU men's basketball team who advanced to the semifinals of the NIT last Tuesday will be recognized at halftime of Sunday's quarterfinal WNIT game. The men, who play Alabama on Tuesday at Madison Square Garden in New York, will depart Sunday afternoon, following the women's game.

    THE BUFFALOES: Colorado is 18-15 overall after winning its third round WNIT game, 70-58, at Wyoming. The Buffaloes have played well down the stretch, winning six of their last eight games.

The Trojans finished tied for fourth in the Pac-10 Conference regular season standings at 10-8. USC averages just under 69 points per game while shooting 40 percent from the field. The Trojans' defense holds opponents to 66 points an outing and 39 percent from the field.

    ****************************

    You can buy tickets online. Bohn said that they've already sold over 1,000. Due to spring break, the ticket office is closed. So if you need to talk to a person to buy your tickets you won't be able to until Sunday. They're opening up the Keg ticket office early at 11:30 AM tomorrow.

    I hope to see some of you there. We need to support this team and send another message to our Pac-12 rivals that CU is coming in strong.

    Way to dominate this thread. :thumbsup:

    I really hope Lappe coaches the Buffs into MSG. I'm still hesitant on her hire, but she does seem to be doing a good job. Let's go Buffs!

    7:38 left, CU down 62-52. The Buffs are led by 27 points from senior Brittany Spears.

    Sounds like they've got too much size for us.

    70-87 Final

    USC had too much, especially when they have someone going 7/8 from 3 point range. Nice season for the Buffs. They really finished strong to make the NIT quarterfinals.

    I look forward to next year and beyond to see what Lappe's able to build here.

    ...huh...no ****. Thanks - I don't really follow the women's game, but I just assumed they played in MSG too. I guess all of their games are played in college arenas.

    Well, congrats to the Buffs for finishing strong. Britney Spears deserves a lot of kudos for her amazing career...too bad KMac wasted her talents by being her coach.
