Perhaps BeBe can give us a scouting report on the lambs
Hard to say. The Rams weren't very good last season with a record of something like 11-17. Buffs won at the CEC 72-46. But their team has changed quite a bit with 6 new players, all from Europe. Three freshmen from Sweden, 1 freshman from Norway, and 2 transfers from Denmark, one a sophomore and one a junior. They have already played a game, against Div 2 UC Colorado Springs at Moby, and managed to "hang on" for the win at 87-82 in overtime. One of the European players was the star of the game. So this should be a game the Buffs can win without too much trouble assuming they are fully in sync for their first game of the season.
Unfortunately, the game isn't going to be televised at all.
Given last season and what each team brings this season CU should be favored by double digits. Last season CSU really didn't have any fight in them and ceded the boards to CU at the beginning of the game. It really was no contest. 72-46 CU and it wasn't that close.
CSU is still rebuilding and brought in a lot of foreign players, several of whom are starting. However, their first game that counted was against UCCS (D2) who took them to OT in Ft. Fun. That tells me that most likely CSU isn't ready for prime time.
It appears that the game might be available to be streamed via - http://www.csurams.com/videos/
CU may have Brittany Wilson available and perhaps freshman Haley Smith (who apparently is the best of the 4 freshmen). Neither of them played v Mines.
Seriously? Not even streaming on the P12?
Isn't that up to CSU (and their conference) to televise it since it's a road game?
Game notes for tonight's game at Rams web site says, under "broadcast info", streaming: CSURams.com/videos so there might be coverage there. I don't know if that if free or pay.
Well CU is down 15-18. CU had a 6 min scoring Drought. Hargis with two traveling calls. CU looks real slow on defense.
We are 17th in the country?
Bww ultimately won out but we're winning by two now
The game is being streamed on the rams site:
cu up 31-22
Yes Arielle looking real good!
33-27 at the half.
Offense looking decent but the defense worries me, at least right now.
Arielle with 11 pts, Reese 6, Beard-Fails 5
10 turnovers, 14 PF's, FG CU 38% to CSU 32%
Sborov with a 2, then a steal and a layup to take it to 37-27. Good start to 2nd half
57-44 Buffs with under 8 minutes left.
All 10 CU players have scored. Sborov with 11, Roberson with 11
These Refs are HORRIBLE on the block/charge calls. Bad!
59-50 CU with 4:00 to go
2:54 to go CU 60-55
60-56 LAppe got T'd up
60-59 holy crap
13-1 run by CSU
same score with 57 sec left. CSU ball
Steal by Arielle. Time out
I'm trying to figure out how Jen got the rebound, got mugged by 3 players, and then CSU was inbounding.
How the HELL was that not a FOUL?!?!?!? Oh my GOD!
They didn't call that a foul? What the **** does it take?
Arielle got run over and it was just called out of bounds. These refs have been really bad. Wouldn't blame the ref's if we lose but wow.
Haha, I know! just crazy! that was so blatent!
YES! CSU with a stupid foul 40ft from basket with 4 secs on shot clock. Sborov nails both, then a blocked shot on the other end!
3 secs Bwil at the line 62-59 CU
