The Colorado Buffaloes are facing the Fresno State Bulldogs on Wednesday night as they hope to win and keep their record above .500 on the year.
The Colorado Buffaloes face the Fresno State Bulldogs on Wednesday night as they hope to bounce back from a disappointing loss to Colorado State and keep their record above .500 on the year. Colorado had won three consecutive games before getting knocked off by the Rams by just a single point, 65-64.
It's mostly been a season of close games so far in Colorado. Their average scoring margin of their past four games has been less than three points. Before losing by a single point to the Rams, the Buffaloes had won by five against Western Michigan, by three in overtime against Air Force and by two against Georgia. They're currently 4-3 on the season, having also lost to Wichita State and Maryland earlier in the year.
Fresno State has struggled even more than Colorado this year, though, posting a 4-4 record through its first eight games. They've won two in a row to get back to .500, but that was following a disappointing three-game losing streak. They've been led by sophomore guard Kevin Olekaibe so far, who's averaging 21 points per game. He's only shooting 38 percent from the field, though, so he's more of a volume scorer than someone who's really efficient.
