    Breakdown the Matchups

    I didn't see the 1st Colorado game (thankfully I understand) nor have I seen any of the Buffs other games. Can anyone breakdown the matchups in a serious basketball way?

    For some unknown reason, CU tried to play Brackins straight up for the 1st 28 minutes. Craig scored 22 pts while we usually had a lead in the 2-5 pt range.

    CU called a timeout at the 12 minute mark. The light came on and they started to double down on CB. Craig score 2 pts in the fianl 12 minutes as we lost by 6.

    I'm afraid that CU just might have a tape of the previous game.

    hopefully we did to and should have learned if two people are covering brakins then someone should be open for a shot so maybe that person should shoot the ball

    edit: and make it

    If they can throw it and make it I would even take that.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    Re: Breakdown the Matchups

    How about the position by position matchups? What kind of offense did they run?

    Hard to get a thread going that actually focuses on the actual game of basketball.

    Re: Breakdown the Matchups

    i only watched the second half of the last game so i can't break down each position for you, but i can remember thinking that we overmatched them at every position, just didn't play even close to good last time. a decent performance (a.k.a. some defense please) would almost guarantee a victory imo.
