    14 games/9 wins.....

    I'm excited about our chances in conference play after the first two games. Texas is a Final Four calibur team, so no shame in that loss and we won a game on the road that was a must win. If we can take care of business at home and win 2 more games on the road on (Texas Tech, Missouri, or Colorado) I think we have a great shot to go dancing. Hopefully the guys have gained a lot of confidence and we push forward towards the goals we had before the season.

    On a side note, root for St.Louis, who is currently 2-0, in the A10 and plays Charlotte today. They beat Richmond recently who beat Oklahmoa State this year. If they continue to play well in conference play, this could be our big win out of conference. Go Clones.

    A bunch of people had this same attitude about playing Nebraska in Lincoln in football this year. I hope the team proves you wrong.

    That's the dumbest thing I have ever heard.

    We never beat Nebraska in football or volleyball in Lincoln either. Colorados basketball program is neither not of that caliber.


    It's all snark from here on out

    It would be HUGE to win at mizzou, tech, and colorado. I think if we do that then we make the tournament.. it would build some big-time momentum!

    along with st. louis, i'm rooting for Houston. They impressed me the most out of any non-conference win. I think they have a good shot at making the tourney through C-USA. It'd be big if we had 2 wins against tourney teams on our resume!

    I seem to remember a team that only went 7 deep, needing a win at Colorado to secure their NCAA tourny chances pull it off...

    Meh both of those programs are consistently better than ours. sCUm's basketball team can go winless up to that game and we'll probably still lose it

    That 3 pointer from Justus at the buzzer in Boulder was amazing!! That's one of my favorite moments in Cyclone history!
