    Tip off is in a few minutes. You can follow it on the radio: AM 760 by following the link and clicking the "Listen" campaign button on the top left of the screen.

    Go Buffs!

    We're matching up well early. Up 11-10 with a bit over 11 minutes left in the first half.

    We're having trouble with their big inside. Trying Crawford and Dufault together to cover the paint.

    Tulsa is playing great D. Not getting many open looks so far.

    lotta shot blocking in this game, for a team not known for it (CU) and a team that i thought was guard heavy (Tulsa).

    We're playing good defense, too. Down 19-25 despite shooting under 30% so far.

    Seems to be a bit dispraportionate in the foul calls. CU is getting called for every tippy tap.

    nice little sequence for us to cut it to 4 (refs let em play underneath/on the boards)......then TU answers and a couple quick fouls on Tunks and Hig. back to 9. sure could use the last points before the half

    That's one of the things that makes it so hard to win on the road. It's always unbalanced that way. It is what it is.

    Down 7 at the half isn't bad (29-36). If we can find the range on our shots in the 2nd half, we've got a chance. I don't know what we can do to deal with it when they've got both their 7 footers in the game at the same time, though.

    We're fortunate to be within 7 with the way we're shooting and the foul trouble. We could win this with a good 2nd half effort.

    Tough start to the 2nd half. Buff down 14 (40-54) with about 14 minutes left.

    Tulsa is a damn good team that always plays well in their house. we need to be worried we lost the rebound battle again and the FG% battle.
