With one of the largest wins in school history against #6 Kansas, the Colorado Buffaloes find their way into the top 25 with a 10-1 record. This weekend, the Buffs will get a chance to continue their streak with a matchup against #7 Oklahoma State. Another win would have the Buffs off to one of their best starts in history.
Despite losing their opening game against Baylor, the Buffs have been on a tear as they rattled off 10 wins in a row. The Buffs are led by junior guard Spencer Dinwiddie, who is averaging 15.5 points and 2.4 assists per game. Their second leading scoring, Josh Scott, is a Colorado product who is averaging 12.4 points and 8.6 rebounds per game.
The 75-72 win over Kansas certainly stands out on the résumé for the Buffs, but they don’t have much in terms of key wins outside of that. That is why the game against Oklahoma State will be a great tell for what CU can handle for the rest of this season. On January 5th, the Buffs will also play against Oregon, who is currently ranked 13th in the country. And, now members of the Pac-12, the Buffs will also play current #1, Arizona, twice this season.
The season is early for a lot of teams and we won’t get a better idea of what CU has to offer until they start playing some more challenging teams. But with such a hot start, and a huge win over Kansas, momentum is certainly on their side. They’ll look to build on that momentum even more as they face off against the Cowboys from Oklahoma State this weekend.
