    On December 22nd at home, the Buffaloes slipped by the Tigers, 56-51, in overtime.
    A couple key stats coming into the game: The RPI ranked Colorado higher, #82 to #163. Last season, Colorado beat Texas Southern 88-74.
    Colorado was able to overwhelm Texas Southern in offensive rebounding and also win the battle in assists.

    Colorado benefited from its offensive rebounding with a big 12 to seven edge. Colorado spread the ball around with ease, and its 16 assists gave it an advantage compared to nine from Texas Southern.
    Spencer DinWiddie was the leading scorer for the Buffaloes with 18 points in 32 minutes, including 15 points in threes. Andre Roberson led everyone with 16 rebounds.
