Colorado vs. Kansas Live TV: ESPN2
The Buffs and Jayhawks know all about one another, as they shared the Big XII together for years before Colorado off and went to the Pac-12 for this year. The rivalry is continuing, but now, it’s a non-conference game. This is a very talented Colorado club that brings back a lot of talent from last year’s team. F Andre Roberson is a double-double man this year at 12.0 points and 11.5 boards per game, and his talents and abilities on the court are out of this world. G Spencer Dinwiddie is also a superior talent, and he’s a five-tool guy as well, averaging 17.8 points, 4.8 boards, 2.5 assists, 1.0 blocks, and 0.8 steals per night. Kansas returns C Jeff Withey, who played well last year in three games against the Buffaloes. He is also a double-double type of player, though he is only averaging 8.1 boards per game this year. In the end, Kansas struggled with Colorado at times, winning by four on the road and seven in the Big XII Tournament when these two met up. The Buffaloes aren’t going to be intimated to go into the Phog, and though they won’t win this game, they could push a Top 10 team in the land.
