    Last year as the buffs stumbled home in the Pac-12 regular season they suffered a tough defeat during a very hard fought game in Eugene. This year the Ducks have stormed out of the gate and to a top-10 ranking, but an injury to Dominic Artis and rough swing through the Bay Area which saw them crush by Stanford have brought them back down to earth. Last year the Ducks jsut shot too weel for CU and despite signs of life from Jeremy Adams the game ended 90-81 Ducks.

    I am really looking forward to this game tonight. It looks like Artis is a no-go. I have read on two gambling websites that the line is factored in with Artis out. So if we see it move in oregon's favor throughout the day it's probably b/c there is word he may play.

    Right now Oregon is a 6.5 point favorite in vegas. KenPom has Oregon by 5 with a 66% chance of winning. Severnovertimes.com has Oregon by 4 with a 62% chance of winning and Sagarin has Oregon by 4 as well. I think it is important to note, that even given their top 10 ranking before getting swept in the Bay, the stats guys haven't loved the Ducks, with KenPom never having them higher than #23 (currently at 35).

    HUGE GAME tonight. We need this game way more than Oregon, not to win the Pac12 regular season title, but we can get off the bubble with a win. I think beating Oregon is our best chance this week because they don't have a PG and their style of play is similar to ours offensively and defensively.

    I hope Booker realizes he can't go 3-15 again and starts getting his teammates involved. We need Booker restricted to 8-10 shots unless he gets on fire, and Dinwiddie taking 15-20 shots for us to win IMO. Also, I would love a press against Oregon without their PG; this is our best chance for a solid road victory, lets go get it!!!

    RealTimeRPI gives Oregon a 66.9% chance

    I think the Buffs might come to play tonight, but we'll see whether that will be enough.

    Full disclosure, it's Jason King of ESPN, not ESPN in general.

    I think I'm going to wear one of those masks that welders use to avoid having an epileptic fit from their court.

    When we're on the road we play like we're in higher altitude down the stretch.

    That court makes my head hurt. And with as loud as their student section is, it sounds like the arena is empty.
