Is Arizona now Colorado’s chief rival in men’s basketball?

Even prior to last season’s controversial, at-the-buzzer call that took away an upset victory for Colorado at Arizona, it felt like the Wildcats were on the verge of becoming CU’s top Pac-12 rival for men’s basketball. Since Colorado joined the conference, the teams have met six times, with each team winning three. Colorado coach Tad Boyle agrees about CU vs. Arizona becoming...

2013-14 NCAA Preseason Preview: No. 25 Colorado

For all of our preseason previews for the Top 25 teams in the NCAA, click here.  The Pacific-12 conference is going to be, well, "Pac'd" this year (good, we got this pun out of the way early). Of course, the Arizona Wildcats are the consensus favorite, and for good reason. But after them, there is a large crowd vying for second, including Oregon, UCLA, California...

High Five: Numerous players help Pac-12 push forward

For this 2012-13 basketball season, we know for a fact there is a west coast bias if the Pac-12 doesn’t place at least five teams in the NCAA Tournament.  After weekend one, the conference showed the pressure that will be applied top to bottom in this league.  The ‘High Five’ looks at five of the many key attributes of weekend one. 1) Arizona entered the weekend at 12-0 and...

The Arizona Wildcats and their stressful relationship with the three ball

The Arizona Wildcats are 14-0, but some of the games have been more exciting than they would have hoped.  In the last week, Sean Miller’s team has beaten Colorado and Utah in tight contests at home.  Beating Colorado took a furious comeback and a bit of luck -- officials waved off a buzzer beater by Colorado guard Sabatino Chen after a video review -- and the outcome against...

Here’s What Really Happened On That Colorado Buzzer Beater

College basketball fans (and fans of legitimate basketball shots, in general) did a collective “WTF???” on Thursday night after referees waived of Colorado Buffaloes guard Sabatino Chen’s three-point buzzer beater. Chen’s deep ball would have knocked off the previously undefeated Arizona Wildcats. Replay rules allow for referees to review all shots as time expires, and multiple...

Poor replay cost Colorado; here's how to fix it

After a blown replay review by referees overturned Colorados game-winning buzzer beater and sent Thursday night's game against No. 3 Arizona into overtime, where the Wildcats averted the Buffaloes' upset bid, the first comparison that came to mind was an obvious one.

Utah-Arizona Preview

Arizona escaped in its last game after catching a break at the end of regulation. Utah wasn't as fortunate in its overtime contest last time out. These teams had differing results in their conference openers, and the unbeaten and third-ranked Wildcats look to continue their best start in 80 years Saturday when they meet a Runnin' Utes team still in search of its first-ever...

Pac-12 confirms call in UA's win; Boyle critical

PHOENIX -- Arizona and Colorado have developed a nice little rivalry in two short seasons together in the Pac-12. The Buffaloes knocked the Wildcats out of NCAA tournament contention with a 53-51 victory in the Pac-12 tournament championship game last season. And while that one went down to the end, it was nothing like the controversial finish to Arizona's victory Thursday,...

NBA Draft Daily - 1.4.13

  Thoughts From Last Night -           As of this writing, the debate is still going on: Did the refs screw Colorado on Sabatino Chen’s last-second 3-point winner?  It was ruled no good, and Colorado went on to complete their collapse against Arizona.  Mark Lyons wasn’t very good throughout the first 30 or so minutes, but he turned it on when the team...

Controversial call keeps 'Cats unbeaten

TUCSON, Ariz. Colorado coach Tad Boyle had no comment. But then he came up with one. Are you kidding me? Boyle said of his team's apparent game-winning 3-pointer at the end of regulation that was waved off in Arizonas eventual 92-83 overtime win Thursday night. Its just disappointing, because our team played well enough to win. For third-ranked Arizona, it was another miracle...

Refs blow call in Colorado-Arizona game

In a very entertaining game, the Colorado Buffaloes went to Arizona and beat what was a previously undefeated team. Sabatino Chen completed an unreal career night with a 3-pointer at the buzzer. Unfortunately, the refs (and this wasn't their first mistake of the night favoring Arizona) defied all logic by looking at the film and deciding that the shot wasn't good. Here...
