Colorado Buffaloes Hope to Earn Split in Pacific Northwest

Colorado was playing well with three straight wins, all at home, but couldn’t follow up on that as they were dumped on the road by a Washington State team that had lost seven straight. The Buffaloes dropped to 15-11 overall and 7-7 in the Pac-12 with the defeat. Colorado led by seven with 8:19 to play in the game but saw Washington State storm back. The Buffaloes led by one with 51 seconds to go before allowing the final five points of the game. Colorado shot 39.2 percent from the field and hit only three of 18 three point attempts. The Buffaloes held a 39-33 edge on the glass but were hurt by 15 turnovers: Dallas Walton and McKinley Wright IV (seven boards, six assists) each had 16 points to lead Colorado in the loss.

The Buffaloes are a slightly below average team on the offensive end of the floor as they are 222nd in the nation with 72.5 points per game. Colorado is tied for 61st in the nation in rebounding with 38 boards a game while they are tied for 235th with 12.8 assists per contest. The Buffaloes are slightly above average defensively, ranking tied for 167th in scoring defense with 72 points allowed per game. Colorado is shooting 44.4 percent from the floor as a team this season. The Buffaloes knock down 7.4 threes a night but are hitting only 35.1 percent from beyond the arc. Colorado is average at the free throw line as they bury 71.5 percent of their chances this season. McKinley Wright IV leads the Buffaloes with 14.5 points to go with 4.5 rebounds and 5.4 assists a night. George King chips in 13.6 points plus 8.3 rebounds a game while Namon Wright adds 10.8 a contest. Deleon Brown, Dominique Collier, Tyler Bey, Lucas Siewert and Dallas Walton all average at least five points per game for Colorado.

Washington Huskies Look to Get Untracked

Washington was flying high a couple weeks ago after downing both Arizona and Arizona State: since then, Mike Hopkins’s club has lost three straight. The Huskies fell to 17-9 overall and 7-6 in Pac-12 play with the defeat. Washington led by eight at the half but saw things fall apart as they were outscored 46-24 in the second half of the contest. The Huskies shot 41.2 percent from the field and knocked down seven of 20 three point attempts. Washington lost the rebounding battle 36-26 in the game: David Crisp was the lone player in double figures for the Huskies with 18 points in the loss.

The Huskies come into this game 158th in the nation in scoring offense with 74.6 points per game. Washington is tied for 276th in rebounding with 33.5 per contest and is 306th with 11.8 assists per game. Defense has been an issue as the Huskies are tied for 194th in scoring defense as they allow 73.1 points a night. The Huskies are shooting 45.9 percent from the floor so far this season. Washington drains 6.6 three pointers a game while shooting 34.2 percent from beyond the arc. The Huskies are mediocre at the free throw line as they shoot 68.7 percent as a team. Jaylen Nowell leads the team with 16.2 points per game. Noah Dickerson puts up 15 points and 8.3 boards a contest, David Crisp chips in 11.9 points per game and Matisse Thybulle contributes 10.5 points a night. Sam Timmins, Dominic Green, Nahziah Carter and Carlos Johnson each score at least 4.1 points a night for the Huskies.

Trends:

Colorado

  • Buffaloes are 4-16-1 ATS in their last 21 road games vs. a team with a home winning % of greater than .600

Washington

  • Huskies are 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 games following an ATS loss
  • Huskies are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Saturday games

Colorado had won three in a row but not being able to win against a Washington State that had lost seven straight and was 1-11 in conference play entering the game is concerning. Washington has lost three straight games and dropped right out of the Pac-12 race as they are 3.5 games off the pace at this point. The Huskies are at home here, where they have gone 13-3 this season, while Colorado stands a dismal 1-8 as the visitors. Look for Washington to snap their slide with an important victory here to try and get back on track.

Pick: Washington Huskies -4
