Colorado remains perfect

The Colorado Buffaloes are off to their best start in years. They are 7-0 and ranked No. 20 in the country. They are coming off a 76-64 win against Loyola Marymount on Wednesday. D'Shawn Schwartz and McKinley Wright IV led the Buffaloes attack with 16 points each while Tyler Bey had 13 points and eight rebounds. Evan Battey tossed in eight points and grabbed eight rebounds. The Buffaloes committed 18 turnovers but won the rebound battle 39-30. They made 25 of 33 free throws.

"We make it really hard on ourselves. We have to make the game simpler and easier, and the way you do that is by just making simple and easy plays. And right now some of our guys aren't doing that. You don't make simple plays and turn it over 18 or 19 times like we have the last two games," Buffaloes coach Tad Boyle said after the game, reported Colorado basketball.

But he knows they can't make those mistakes against Kansas.

"We have an opportunity on Saturday to go into a special place in college basketball history and make a little history of our own," Boyle said. "It isn't going to be easy and we aren't going to do it by turning the ball over and getting sped up. We're going to do it by executing, competing and doing the things we are capable of doing. All you can ask for in life is an opportunity. Our guys have it. Let's go try to make the most of it."
