BOULDER -A snow storm Thursday in the Pacific Northwest has delayed Colorado's women's basketball games at Oregon State and Oregon by one day, to Saturday, Feb. 8, and Monday, Feb. 10.
Colorado's game at Oregon State will now be played on Saturday at 12 p.m. MST., at Gill Coliseum in Corvallis. The Buffaloes will then play at Oregon on Monday at 6 p.m. MST, at Matthew Knight Arena in Eugene.
The decision was made Thursday afternoon before the Buffaloes left for Oregon, allowing the team to stay home and attend classes on Friday.
