Wow! Hopefully he continues to improve and, eventually, can get back on the court and pursue his dreams. Very scary.
7 of the next 9 at home.
Going 1-2 to open conference play was "massive"
Should going 8-1 or at least 7-2 be the expectation?
6-3 puts us on pace for a .500 finish in conference play, we'd be 7-5, but have as many home losses as road wins.I'll be disappointed with anything less than 9-0.
7-2 would still make me happy. Strangely, 6-3 has a very disappointing ring to it.

8-1 would be big maybe a shot at the league title, +2 road wins to home losses; 9-0 would be a very real chance at a regular season title.
8-1 is the classic hold serve at home, split on the road formula
Heads up for the when the douchers come out of the woodwork the next 10 days.
Someone said it would be massive?
1 win on this roadie is a successful trip. Let's get it tonight and play loose with house money in LA.
fwiw, kenpom has us as 1 or 2 point dogs in all three games. should win 1, but anything more than that is big time gravy.
Fair... but in the larger context of CU's place in the bball world (remember, picked 7th, not a blue blood, etc etc), it's not an untenable position. In other contexts, he is likely right. For example it is a massive success for our tourney hopes.Ziskin used massive, Darth and nik had it as a success.
For my money, on the road, decent opponents, all about coinflips by the computer rankings, 0-3 = bummer, disaster if not competitive; 1-2 = acceptable if not getting blown out in the 2; 2-1 = big plus; 3-0 = massive.
Compared to nik and Darth's takes I think it's just a matter of semantics separating me from them.
The Ziskin take that 1 win and 2 losses is a massive success is just depressing.

TEam is already coming together! As for the home court stuff, not yet. A lot of people are interested in that.FYI, Kenpom has CU's historical home court as 4.9 points, #1 in the nation.One win was a successful trip, two would have been massive, 3/3 would be top 10, IMO
I feel so so so good about this team really coming together by Pac-12 tourney time. Walton will return and continue to provide 10ppg, Kee will keep progressing, Jabari stays the on the floor longer, Eli picks more moments to take his shots, Kin, Battey, and Horne continue to provide consistent offense, the whole team keeps playing excellent D, so on and so forth
Semi-related, has anyone seen stats on how home-court advantaged has statistically differed this season?
