What to Know
After two games on the road, the Colorado Buffaloes are heading back home. The Buffaloes and the Washington Huskies will face off in a Pac-12 battle at 9 p.m. ET Thursday at CU Events Center. Colorado is out to keep their six-game home win streak alive.
On Saturday, Colorado lost to the UCLA Bruins on the road by a decisive 68-54 margin. Guard KJ Simpson (17 points) was the top scorer for Colorado.
Meanwhile, Washington came out on top in a nail-biter against the California Golden Bears on Saturday, sneaking past 81-78. Forward Keion Brooks Jr. and guard Koren Johnson were among the main playmakers for Washington as the former dropped a double-double on 26 points and ten rebounds and the latter had 15 points. That makes it three consecutive games in which Brooks Jr. has had at least ten rebounds.
The Buffaloes are expected to win this handily, but they should have beaten California Dec. 31 easily too and instead slipped up with an 80-76. In other words, don't count the Huskies out just yet.
