Now that the Republic has, at least for one day, survived, thought I'd start this thread.

(The now-scheduled Monday game against Utah is a replacement for a previously scheduled (Saturday) game against Oregon State, which was, per https://cubuffs.com/news/2021/1/5/mens-basketball-saturdays-oregon-state-game-postponed.aspx, "postponed due to COVID-19 protocols within the Beavers' men's basketball program". For more on the several Buff schedule changes, go to https://cubuffs.com/news/2021/1/6/buffs-pac-12-announce-mens-basketball-schedule-changes.aspx .)

Go Buffs!!!

Note - For those not aware, the NCAA has begun releasing the NET rankings which are used for NCAA Tournament selection purposes. As of today, the Buffs are at #15, while the Ducks are at #21 and Utes at #119.

Preview for the Ducks game -

"
BOULDER — Home has not been where Tad Boyle's Colorado Buffaloes have roamed this year — at least not on a regular basis.

In fact, one of the statistical oddities created by the coronavirus pandemic season is this: after 10 games, the 7-3 Buffaloes (1-2 Pac-12) have played as many games in Kansas State's Bramlage Coliseum (two) as they have at the CU Events Center.
...

SCOUTING REPORT:

Oregon (8-1 overall, 3-0 Pac-12):
As per usual, Dana Altman's Ducks have plenty of talent. Guard Chris Duarte was named conference player of the week Monday after averaging 21 points and 4.5 rebounds per game in Oregon's wins last week over Cal and Stanford.

But Duarte is far from UO's only weapon. The Ducks have three players averaging double-figure scoring, led by 6-6 forward Eugene Omoruyi (18.7 ppg) and followed by the 6-6 Duarte (16.7) and 6-6 forward Eric Williams (12.7).

As a team, Oregon is second in the conference in field goal percentage (47.4), third in 3-point field goal percentage defense (29.2) and second in rebound margin (plus-7.4 per game). The Ducks' only loss came against Missouri early in the season, and they own conference wins over Washington, Stanford and Cal.

The Ducks will also be more than happy to play in an empty gymnasium, as they haven't fared well at the Events Center. Buffs fans have almost always packed the arena for games against the Ducks, and it has never ended well for Oregon.

In fact, Oregon has never won in Boulder. While Colorado has just a 12-9 all-time lead in the series, that ledger includes a perfect 9-0 record at home — including a 7-0 mark in Pac-12 games.

Stoked for a game at a time that works for my Euro schedule. I think CU is due for a win.

Oregon is the only Pac 12 basketball team I haven't seen play live at the Events Center, and I guess it won't happen this year either.

Oh, well, stoked to have a game on a network I get legitimately.

Scares me that they beat Seton Hall by 13, but that was early season. Is Dallas playing?

Dallas is out.
It's a great testimate to how far Dallas has come back from his injury and development as a player that his absence can greatly impact CU's chances in a game. Happy for him and hope he does stay a 6th year as expected for not only his play but also feel like he will be a great mentor for Lawson next year.

Behind by 30 seconds, but much better syncing the television with the radio broadcast.

I want DShawn to have a game that he scores 20. He get's great looks, just want them to fall. Feel like it can be such mental thing for him sometimes.

If we were 3-10 instead of 1-10 from 3, it would feel like we were cruising. Almost all of those missed 3s are really good looks too.

I wish they'd let them play, refs, nobody came to watch you. Keep pushing the ball, and get to the bucket. Threes will fall later.
