The Buffs (16-6, 10-5, #20 in NET rankings) (hopefully) start their last scheduled regular season road trip this weekend as they head to the Pacific NW to face the Ducks (12-4, 7-3, #46 NET) and Beavers (10-10 , 6-8, #136 NET). (Per a tweet they sent out an hour or so again, The Buffs may be in the air (or already landed:?) heading towards Eugene now.)

Coverage for Thursday's game is scheduled for ESPN2, while Saturday's game is scheduled for ESPNU. (Links for those needing to stream the games (if subscribed) will be listed near the bottom of this post.)

Go Buffs!!!

EUGENE, Ore. — One thing Tad Boyle's Colorado Buffaloes have done particularly well this season is bounce back from losses.

The 16-6 Buffs (10-5 Pac-12) have not suffered back-to-back defeats all year.

But that trend will receive its most difficult test of the season Thursday when CU, coming off a disappointing 71-62 loss at Cal, heads to Oregon for a 9 p.m. (MT) matchup with the surging Ducks (12-4, 7-3).

"It speaks to the leadership, the resiliency this group has, the competitiveness," Boyle said Wednesday, just before the team left for a weekend road trip to Oregon. "This team, this version of the Colorado Buffaloes, from my standpoint as their coach, they hurt and they're as mad and they're as disappointed after our losses as much as the coaching staff. I can tell you, not every team is like that. Sometimes players just brush off the loss like it's no big deal. It's like taking a shower, we'll get another one tomorrow. Our team's not like that and that's one reason we have bounced back after losses."

Of course, as Boyle added, bouncing back against the Ducks on their home floor will be a tall order. After battling injuries and Covid-19 pauses throughout the season, Oregon has all of its key players back in uniform and has won three in a row, including a road trip sweep of Arizona and Arizona State.

Throw in the fact that Colorado has lost five in a row on the Ducks' home floor, and the Buffs know they have their work cut out for them.

"We're going to get their best shot, I can promise you," Boyle said. "It's a big game for both teams."

Indeed, there's plenty at stake for each program.
...

"They have really good players and a lot of firepower offensively from a lot of different positions," Boyle said. "Our defense is going to be challenged as much as it has been all year. They can score so many different ways."

The Ducks are indeed blessed with offensive balance, with four players averaging double figures. Forward Eugene Omoruyi averages 17.8 points and 5.4 rebounds per game while guard Chris Duarte is averaging 17.2 points and 4.9 rebounds. Junior guard Will Richardson, meanwhile, has marked his recent return to the lineup after a hand injury by averaging 12.0 points per game.

They're leading the Pac-12 making just under nine threes a game and they can really drive the ball," Boyle said. "Omoruyi is as good of a low-post scorer as there is in our league, especially being 6-foot-6. They present a lot of problems. For us to be successful, we're going to have to guard them. Guard the 3-point line, guard them off the bounce, and we're going to have limit them to one shot because they're a good offensive rebounding team."
...

BROADCAST: The game will be televised by ESPN2 with Roxy Bernstein and Adrian Branch. KOA 850 AM and 94.1 FM will carry the radio broadcast with Mark Johnson and Scott Wilke.

UP NEXT: The Buffs wrap up their weekend stay in Oregon with a 6 p.m. game Saturday at Oregon State (ESPNU). They then return home for a pair of games next week, starting with a Feb. 25 game against USC (7 p.m.), followed by a Feb. 27 matchup with UCLA (8 p.m.).

Tonight is a tall task, the Ducks have a lot of talent and don't lose at home often. Doable but probably takes our A game offensively and defensively., maybe A+.

We really need a win tonight. Another loss and we start to get really close to falling out of the top 4. We do have the tiebreaker over Stanford, which really helps.

I didn't know: Andre suited up with Brooklyn. He and Spencer together. Nice.
