    Miller and Peters coming in clutch for Buffs down the stretch

    The start of the year 2017 saw the Colorado Buffaloes head into Pac-12 Conference play with a 10-3 overall record. On Jan. 1, a trip to Salt Lake City to take on the Utah Utes in CU’s first conference matchup opened a box filled with misery for the Buffs. Exactly three weeks after that 76-60...

    Support or Retort: Colorado can win at least 5 of 7 games on February

    After Colorado's two straight Pac-12 wins over OSU and No. 10 Oregon, and taking into consideration that the team lost its previous three games (USC, Washington and Wazzu) by a combined seven points, with the latter two losses coming in OT, I'm interested to hear people's expectations for this...

    CU vs. USC postgame report

    The University of Colorado Buffaloes basketball team were dealt another blow to their season Sunday night as they fell 71-68 in the last minute to the No. 25 Trojans of USC. With five straight losses to start conference play, Colorado drops to 10-8 on the season. In untypical fashion, the...

    Some takeaways from CU's loss to USC

    What another fantastic finish to a conference game at Coors Events Center. After going up by as much as 11 over No. 25 USC in the first half, Colorado could not contain Chimezie Metu and the Trojans' offense, falling at home to Southern Cal, 71-68. There's some good that I saw in this game...

    Curious: how much blame does Tad Boyle deserve for CU's struggles in 2016-17?

    Tad Boyle is an honest, straight shooting coach. He has a great basketball IQ and knows his players' strengths and their weaknesses. He's never been afraid to call them out, or shoulder the blame for losses. That said, how much criticism does he deserve for the team's showing so far this year...

    Lackluster play from supporting cast is hurting Colorado immensely.

    The Colorado Buffaloes sit at 10-6 on the year and are coming off of two straight conference losses which kicked off the start to 2017. So far this season, the team has played sound basketball (in wins vs. Texas, Xavier and in the recent loss at ASU) but has also played quite poorly (vs. CSU and...

    What is it with Colorado's painfully slow starts?

    It took nearly eight minutes for the Buffs to make their first shot from the field during the game and the minutes that preceded it as well as followed were beyond ugly. When Deleon Brown sank one from long range, it made the score 19-5 in favor of Eastern Washington. Yep, the Buffs let...

    Buffs' free throw conversion rate is troubling

    The 2016-17 Colorado Buffaloes have had an interesting non conference performance so far this year. Head coach Tad Boyle has called his team "overrated," and he's named the Buffs' 72-58 loss to CSU at the Keg on Nov 30 the worst loss in his tenure as CU's head coach. Finally, he labeled...

    Tad Boyle: 81-71 win vs. Fort Hays = "Worst win [during my tenure at CU]

    Tad Boyle has repeatedly stressed that his team has a tendency to not want to show up for the games against "lesser" teams. Defense gets sloppy, too many missed/forced shots, inadequate ball movement, etc is what I'm talking about in regards to "not showing up." Well, gee, look what happened at...

    The Colorado Buffaloes men’s basketball team hosted the Xavier Musketeers on Wednesday night at Coors Events Center. After trailing 31-28 at halftime and despite falling behind by as much as nine in the second half, the Buffs battled back and earned the win, 68-66. “We knew it was going to be a...

    Do I even need to say anything...Buffs humiliated by Rams, 72-58

    I imagine many of you are about as pissed off as Jack Black before he punted Baxter off the bridge in Anchorman and I'm right there with you. Gosh damn that was an ugly game. The stats that immediately jump out: Buffs shoot just 32.2% from the floor, including a horrid 23.5% (8-of-34) in the...

    Buffs defeat Seattle despite sloppy play

    The Colorado Buffaloes men's basketball team played host for the first round of regional play for the annual Legends Classics. The Buffs defeated the Seattle University Redhawks, 67-55. It was an ugly game for both teams in numerous departments. Collectively, the two teams shot just 31 percent...

    Tad Boyle on basketball media day: 2016 team = overrated

    Players and Colorado basketball head coach Tad Boyle addressed the media on Tuesday afternoon at Coors Events Center as part of the annual Media Day. Boyle wasted no time beating around the bush and set the tone early. “We’re 18 practices in, and I think those of you who’ve followed this team...
