    • Boulder isn't as congested as Tucson (population is significantly lower).
    • Andre Roberson is ranked 5th nationally in rebounds, 36th nationally in steals, and 8th in the Pac 12 in blocks.
    • More violent crime happens in Tucson so be careful if you visit (when compared to Boulder -- according to the FBI).
