Video: Lamar Hurd compares Colorado's Josh Scott to André Roberson
Through 16 games, Colorado's Josh Scott has had a very productive season, leading some to believe the 6-10 forward is developing to where he could leave Boulder as one of the program's best ever big men.
Entering Spokane Wednesday to face Washington State, Scott had posted a double-double in each of the past five games. Unfortunately, he came up just one rebound short in CU's 71-70 overtime victory over the Cougars, but the five-game streak was a feat that that not even the recently departed André Roberson was able to accomplish during his three years as a Buff.

During the broadcast, Pac-12 Networks analyst Lamar Hurd compared Scott’s game to Roberson’s, who, as you probably know, parlayed his 2012-2013 All-Pac-12 and league Defensive Player of the Year accolades into a first-round NBA draft selection. Roberson was a stud in college, but Hurd seemed to hint that he's more impressed with Scott's all around game.
While the 2013-2014 Colorado Buffaloes are winning at a program-historic rate, the future is also very bright with Scott – someone you can run an offense through while also getting consistent defense – and 6-7 Xavier Johnson pairing up to anchor a formidable frontcourt for the next few seasons.
