Colorado heads to Laramie to take on Wyoming in a non-conference battle of unbeaten teams.
No. 19 Colorado (6-0) renews their border rivalry with Wyoming (7-0) when the two basketball teams meet at the Arena-Auditorium in Laramie.
Both teams enter the game without a loss so far this season, although the Buffaloes struggled to maintain their blemish-free record in their last game. Colorado had to rally from a 10-point deficit at halftime to beat Texas Southern in double overtime.
The Buffs have a balanced attack with four players averaging double-digits scoring, led by a pair of sophomore guards. Askia Booker is averaging almost 17 points per game and three assists while Spencer Dinwiddie adds 15 points and five rebounds per game.
The Cowboys have cruised through their early season schedule with their most impressive win coming over Northern Colorado 69-60. Wyoming leans on a pair of seniors to lead the way on the court. Forward Leonard Washington leads the team with 14 points and 8.7 rebounds per game. Fellow senior guard Luke Martinez averages 13.1 points while making more than three three-point shots per game.
Wyoming beat the Buffs last season in Boulder, 65-54.
The game is scheduled to tip off at 8 p.m. MT and will be televised on ROOT Sports.
