    Buffs(10-5, 1-2) vs. Huskies(11-4, 2-0)

    Tip: 8pm MST

    TV: ESPNU

    Radio: 850am

    Line: CU -2
    O/U: 139.5

    The Buffs need a win tonight. Washington is a good team with a decent NET ranking(#44) and there aren't too many opportunities left like this the rest of the season. The Huskies play that Syracuse style 1-3-1 zone defense that is not only very effective but also can make a basketball game potentially very boring to watch(thanks Boehiem). Last year in Boulder Boyle and staff attacked this zone by feeding the ball to Tyler Bey from the high post who was basically a baseline runner for most of the game. It resulted in some easy points for Bey, and while the Huskies zone did have to sag lower to respect the baseline pass, the Buffs couldn't take adavantage from the 3 point line. This was in part because the Huskies were good at recovering and getting back to the perimeter to contest a shot, and even when they were open the Buffs just didn't shoot the 3-ball well. This is exactly the type of game Shane Gatling could shine in, and the Buffs will need him to.

    GO BUFFS!!!!!

    Kin’s Injury is 100% on the officials. They’ve been letting UW climb over dudes all night.

    Shoulder. He was reaching up for a ball and had his arm bent back. Hope it isn’t separated. He was in a ton of pain.

    I know this season is probably a lost season anyway, but the defense is simply disappointing. Not acceptable.

    Makes sense - best opponent so far at CEC. Sorry, Drake - Portland - South Dakota are “can’t win” opponents — we win it’s expected, no big deal. We lose it’s a disaster.

    Hard to argue when they don’t show replays.

    The way this game/season is going, the walks-on will be getting minutes before the game is officially out of reach.

    That was not a foul but it was goal tending. Balances out with Dshawn making both free throws.
