BOULDER — What’s gone wrong for the Colorado Buffaloes in their losses this season?
“We didn’t play with the level of focus and intensity that we did against Dayton and we did against Oregon,” head coach Tad Boyle said.
Let’s set the stage here.
Colorado is 12-3 with big-time wins over No. 9 Oregon and No. 15 Dayton. The Buffs have also lost games to Northern Iowa (receiving votes) and Oregon State (not receiving votes). There’s another loss, to No. 3 Kansas, but that isn’t factored into Boyle’s evaluation.
“The KU game I throw out of the equation because we couldn’t make a shot that day,” Boyle said. “We could’ve guarded as well as we’ve guarded all year and not won. We just got beat that day.”
