As the old saying goes, the Colorado Buffaloes could not buy a basket Tuesday night. As a result, the ice-cold Buffs dropped a 69-59 loss to visiting San Diego, their third loss in their last four games.
Colorado's young Buffaloes got their first taste of the big stage Saturday, and the lesson delivered proved to be a harsh one. Playing in front of a sold-out Cintas Arena crowd, the Buffs fell behind early and could never close the gap, dropping a 96-69 decision to No. 13 Xavier.
Colorado's young Buffs are growing up in a hurry. CU's freshmen sparked a decisive 12-3 run Wednesday night that broke open a one-point game in the second half and the Buffs pulled away down the stretch for a 75-57 win over New Mexico at the Coors Events Center.
