PAC-12 Tournament Time

The Colorado Buffs regular season came to an end on Saturday when they beat the California Golden Bears 54-46 to bring their record to 18-13 overall and 8-10 in conference play. It was not the season that most people  where expecting out of them. Most of the people thought they could make it to the NCAA Tournament and win a game or two.

 

With that aside the PAC-12 tournament gets underway this Wednesday March the 8th. The Buffs win play the Washington State Cougars  for the third time this year, The first match up the Cougars won in overtime with a score of 91-89, the second time the Buffs won with a score of 81-49. If the Buffs get the win against Washington State they would have to play the number 2 seed Arizona Wildcats who we always seem to play in the PAC-12 Tournament.

 

With all that said hopefully the Buffs have a good showing in the PAC-12 Tournament in Las Vegas and shock us and win the championship. #Roll Tad

One Month Till Basketball Season

The last time the buffs hit the basketball court was in Des Moines Iowa in the NCAA Tournament, It was the last time buffs fans got to see Josh Scott put on the buffs uniform. After a long offseason we are now only a month away until the first game at Coors Events Center where the buffs will play the Sacramento State Hornets.

Josh Scott was not the only person to leave Boulder after the game. The other person to leave Boulder was Cameron Goeldner, In August Cameron left for school to go to the University of New Mexico to be a Lobo. With Cameron leaving for college he decided to give me the job for CU Buffs BBall. with all this I would like to introduce my self to everybody my name is Jace Kinney, I’m a huge buffs fan my family has had season tickets for basketball for Four seasons this will be our fifth season. I’m a sophomore at the University of Northern Colorado and even though I go to school their I’m a bigger buffs fan. I would like to thank Cameron for thinking of me to take over the site.

With all that being said who is ready for #RollTad in a month?

 

Welcome to the Goelden Era

With the conclusion of last season’s PAC-12 tournament, we saw the end of the Askia Booker era, but that was not the only era that drew to a close with last season’s end. Of course, I’m referring to the end of Trevor Simmons’ time here at CU Buffs BBall.

In August, Trevor headed off to college at the University of Wisconsin, and a few days ago he handed me the keys to the castle, so I thought I would introduce myself. Hi, my name is Cameron Goeldner, and I’m the new head of CU Buffs BBall. I’m a senior in high school just down the hill from Coors Events Center, and I’ve been watching the Buffs ever since I was a little kid. I’m a Boulder native, and in addition to the work I’ll be doing here I also write about the Rockies. I’ll be in attendance for the majority of home games this season and as the season rolls around, will begin posting two to three times a week. I’m honored that Trevor found me fit to take over, and will do my best to fill the big shoes he left for me.

With introductions done, I just have one question. Is it November yet?

Colorado Buffaloes : CBI Storylines

Just when you thought the basketball season was over, Colorado announced on Sunday night that they would accept, well forcibly pay their way for a bid in the CBI Tournament. The CBI, short for College Basketball Invitational, is one of the lesser known postseason tournaments in the world college basketball. It normally intermingles solid, underrated mid major teams along with less dominant teams from the Power Five Conferences. This year, unfortunately, the Buffaloes are the only program from a power conference, so the opportunity/expenditure does not have the ‘authentic postseason tournament’ feel, and it doesn’t help that may cost the University of Colorado at least $310,000. Nevertheless, it still an opportunity to squeeze a few more basketball games from this season. It is also the first indicator of what the 2015-16 season will look like. So, what’s in store for the Buffaloes in the College Basketball Invitational? Let’s take a look.

The Field: Colorado, Deleware State, Eastern Michigan, Gardner Webb, Hofstra, Loyola Chicago, Mercer, Oral Roberts, Pepperdine, Radford, Rider, Seattle, Stony Brook, UC Santa Barbra, UL Monroe, and Vermont. (If you’ve heard of seven or more of these schools, give yourself a pat on the back.) The full bracket can be found here.
