First half shooting and turnover problems dug too deep of a hole for the Buffs. J40 was 5/9 in the 1st. Rest of team was 3/23. Didn't make a 3pt shot in the 1st. Final team and player stats of note: Team FGs: CU 26/77 (33.8%) / UA 22/48 (45.8%) 3pt: CU 5/19 (26.3%) / UA 6/12 (50.0%) FT: CU 21/25 (84.0%) / UA 32/44 (72.7%) Reb: CU 52 (26 O) / UA 35 (9 O) Ast: CU 12 / UA 7 Stl: CU 7 / UA 8 Blk: CU 5 / UA 11 TO: CU 13/ UA 15 Individual George King... 22 pts/ 5 rebs/ 3 asts/ 2 stls/ 2 tos Josh Scott... 18 pts/ 15 rebs/ 1 ast/ 1 stl/ 2 blk/ 1 to Josh Fortune... 10 pts/ 8 rebs/ 1 ast/ 3 stl/ 2 blk/ 0 to Tommy Akyizilli... 9 pts/ 1 reb/ 1 ast/ 1 stl/ 3 tos Wes Gordon... 7 pts/ 8 rebs/ 2 asts/ 2 tos Xavier Talton... 6 pts/ 2 rebs/ 1 asts/ 0 tos Tre Fletch... 4 pts/ 3 rebs/ 3 asts/ 1 blk/ 1 to Tory Miller... 2 pts/ 4 rebs/ 0 tos Dom Collier... 0 pts/ 2 rebs/ 2 tos For Arizona, notable scorers were Trier with 23, R. Anderson with 17, York with 15 and K. Allen with 12. Zeus led the way with 11 rebounds. Biggest thing was that CU couldn't make a shot for a good part of the game. Mostly that's just credit to UA. They came out with more intensity than CU and their defense was nasty. Lots of shots were rushed and contested, turning shots the Buffs usually make into misses. Also forced CU into a lot of early turnovers, with CU having committed 9 by half. So, combination of CU playing bad and UA playing great. Second half was a reversal of that. CU played well (not great) and UA let up its defensive pressure while getting sloppy on offense (10 2nd half turnovers). Buffs played pretty good defense the whole way, but Zona was hot from outside today. CU is actually better on the glass just like they were in the home game, which is surprising given UA's rebounding talent and size. In short, I think these teams match up pretty closely. Today was Arizona's day, though. They showed themselves to be tournament tough while the Buffs are learning. No doubt that UA deserved the win in this one, but I'm proud of the Buffs for how they kept fighting and I think they learned a lot about what it's going to take to win next week.
