Colorado Men's Basketball: Where Are They Now?

Russ Isabella-USA TODAY Sports

As this years team adjusts to the loss of Spencer and Fletch, I thought I would take a look back at where Buffs of the past are today. The focus will be on recent Buffs, more specifically those from the beginning of the Boyle era and end of the Bzdelik era. If this receives a positive response I will write a similar post for the Football team.
