CU basketball fans were on one crazy emotional roller coaster last weekend. Colorado’s early season road trip got off to a rough start on Friday night against Grambling. Just over five minutes into the first half the Buffs were down 15-6 and the Grambling State Tigers maintained that cushion until the final buzzer. It was a disappointing 83-74 loss where Colorado struggled to find a rhythm and shot themselves in the foot with turnovers. Come Sunday afternoon, the Grambling game was an afterthought. The Buffs’ 78-66 upset win over the 11th-ranked Tennessee Volunteers on Sunday was the first time CU had beaten a ranked team away from Boulder in three years. The highs were high and the lows were low…

According to ESPN, Williams is the 14th overall prospect in the 2023 recruiting class. He is the number three overall small forward recruit in the nation and Arizona’s highest-rated recruit this year. Williams spoke to ESPN shortly after his commitment. “The program and the players are very connected, and they have built a great culture,” Williams told ESPN. “I see myself…

Before Buffs’ football won their first game of the season on Saturday, head coach Tad Boyle and the men’s basketball team took the court for an intrasquad scrimmage.

Buffs basketball is nearly back. Evan Battey and Jabari Walker have moved on to the professional ranks while Elijah Parquet and Keeshawn Barthelemy hit the transfer portal leaving this year’s team with plenty of questions to answer. Who will jump in and fill the leadership void left by Battey? Who will lead the team in scoring? Do the Buffs have...

Well, that one stunk. Even after Colorado took an early 6-0 lead, tonight had a different feel to it. It was as if Washington had such a bad record that they were destined to upset the Buffs. Of course, destiny was fulfilled in the Buffs’ 84-80 loss to the Huskies on Wednesday night. Washington – who was shooting just 29.3%...

BOULDER — If fans came for the McKinley Wright assist record, they stayed for the Jabari Walker breakout game. The Buffs took their time to warm up their engines, as they have throughout the season. Cal wasn’t supposed to provide much of a challenge but they did for the majority of the first half. However, it was only a matter...

If you missed Monday’s game and want to re-watch it, just skip ahead until the second half. That way you can save yourself from watching Utah’s 17-2 run to close the half. However, Tad Boyle and his team came out of the locker room firing. They opened the second half on a 15-0 run of their own, and never gave up...

This season, things will look a bit different. There will...

It was a fist-fight, blood-bath, gut-check of a battle for the Colorado Buffaloes on Saturday night. Really, insert any other way to describe a sloppy and physical basketball game. Unfortunately for CU, they found themselves on the wrong end of a 65-62 score against the UCLA Bruins. Just like last season, Mick Cronin’s Bruins were able to force turnovers and...
