The Colorado Buffaloes have been one of the true surprises in the unpredictable Pac-12. Despite not having one guy that can really take over the game, the Buffs have taken advantage of great balance and a difficult home court atmosphere. In the final game before a key three-game road trip, the Buffs will look to maintain their unbeaten home record in Pac-12 play when they host the Oregon Ducks.
After splitting in Los Angeles against USC and UCLA, the Buffs returned home and delivered a dominant performance in their 82-60 win over Oregon St. Carlon Brown is the primary offensive option for Colorado, as he is averaging a team-high 13 ppg. Andre Roberson is one of the most versatile athletes in the Pac-12 and has made a huge impact on the boards for Colorado. Roberson is averaging 11.3 ppg and 11.2 rpg and has recorded a double-double in three straight games.
Oregon enters this game having won five of its last six, including a road sweep of the Arizona schools. Devoe Joseph, who transferred into the program from Minnesota,is averaging a team-high 15.7 ppg and is shooting nearly 45% from behind the arc.
