Tired of talking about Hawkins and how terrible things are going with the football program? Let's talk Men's Basketball.
Reasons to get excited:
1. New coach. Tad Boyle is here and preaching defense and rebounding.
2. Cory Higgins and Alec Burks. Both made the preseason Wooden Award list. Only 50 players make the list and CU is 1 of only 5 teams to have 2 players make the list. (Duke, Gonzaga, Michigan State, Syracuse)
3. Construction of a new 10.8 million dollar practice facility. Basketball Practice Facility
4. Recruits!!! CU is getting interest from several recruits and have already landed 2 members for the 2011-2012 season.
Spencer Dinwiddie (6-4 PG) given a grade of 91 from ESPN. He is a high IQ guy and has big upside.
Askia Booker (6-0 SG/PG) given a grade of 90 from ESPN. A prolific scorer with high energy and athleticism.
Colorado Basketball is back on the upswing and needs some support. Get out and see a few games this year. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised especially if you haven't followed the team much the past few seasons.
