The Colorado Buffaloes should walk right over the New Orleans Privateers on Wednesday night.
The Colorado Buffaloes final non-conference game before entering Pac-12 play should be more of a tune up than a test. The Buffs will take on the New Orleans Privateers in Boulder on Wednesday night, before hosting the Utah Utes in their first conference game this weekend.
The Privateers are 9-5 on the season— with their most notable victory being over North Alabama— but are only 2-4 on the road. New Orleans has also had trouble this season vs. Division I opponents, losing by 52 points to the New Mexico Lobos and 34 points to the Rice Owls. The Pioneers are led by forward Lovell Cook, who is averaging 13.5 points on the season on 51% shooting.
Game date/time: Wednesday, Dec. 28, 7:00 p.m. MT
