No. 21 Colorado men's basketball picked up its sixth straight win to open the season Saturday over Sacramento State in Boulder.
Colorado men's basketball sophomore Evan Battey speaks with Pac-12 Networks' Ben Braun following the Buffs' 59-45 victory over Sacramento State Saturday night in Boulder.
Colorado took the best punch the USC Trojans could muster Thursday night, then punched back. Tad Boyle's Buffaloes overcame a 14-point first half deficit, then withstood a furious USC rally down the stretch to collect a 70-66 win over the Trojans at the CU Events Center.
Colorado coach Tad Boyle expects to see a different USC team when the No. 18/17 Buffs and Trojans square off Thursday in a 7 p.m. game at the CU Events Center (ESPN2).
Nobody needs to remind the Colorado Buffaloes what's at stake this week. The No. 18/17 Buffs (20-6 overall, 9-4 Pac-12) play their final two home games of the year this week, beginning with a 7 p.m. game Thursday against USC at the CU Events Center (ESPN2), followed by Saturday's 2 p.m. home finale against UCLA (CBS).
