Hello to everyone! I am having some car/driveway issues this morning and could not find the time to put together my normal Mile High Five. Needless to say, the big winners on the night were the Buffaloes of Colorado University. Despite a sub-par shooting night by star guard, Alec Burks and a double-digit first-half deficit, the Buffs got an impressive 74-66 win at Kansas State.
Big ups to local Arapahoe High School product, Levi Knutson, whose six 3-pointers (and 20 points) were instrumental in keeping the Wildcats at bay. Simply put, wins on the road in this conference will mean NCAA Tournament berths and a seed somewhere between #4-8. I will keep my fingers crossed that the Buffs can continue their strong play, make the tournament and then get placed in the Denver region.
Oh yes, you know that I already have my media credential requests in-line for that Thursday/Saturday at the Pepsi Center!
