I really am at a loss for words about this game. I have no idea what the Sooners are going to do on offense but I do know that they will crash the boards and play tenacious defense which should be enough to beat the Buffaloes. I used the word "should" because OU will have to score and that hasn't been easy for OU.

If the Sooners lose this one then it will officially mark them as the worst basketball team in the Big 12.

Scouting the Buffs
Guard Richard Roby was a first-team All-Big 12 selection last year and he leads Colorado with his 19.0 points a game and ranks third by averaging 5.2 rebounds.
