Welcome to the Ralphie Report as the Colorado Buffaloes get ready to take on the Iowa St. Cyclones in Ames. Once again, the Buffs will try to win a Big 12 road game for the first time in 32 games. Colorado has also dropped 24 straight road games against Division I opponents. The Buffs are coming off a pretty impressive victory over Nebraska earlier this week but the real test for this team is winning on the road. Iowa State comes into the game on a three game losing streak with their only conference win being on the road against Nebraska. Iowa State is led by F Craig Brackins who averages 15.9 points per game.

As always, the key for the Buffs to win on the road is rebounding. Colorado has been incredibly efficient on the offensive end of the floor but as a team ranks 314th out of 334 in rebounding margin meaning opponents average 5.8 more rebounds per game. Iowa State comes in ranked 133rd in the same department


CYCLONES UPDATE: Iowa State comes into the game on a three-game losing (their second three-game skid of the season). ISU is 1-4 in Big 12 play with their lone win coming at Nebraska (56-53). Conference losses are to Texas (90-83), at Texas Tech (78-71), Kansas (84-61) and at Oklahoma (89-84). with the exception of the KU loss, Iowa State's other three Big 12 losses are an average of six points. The Cyclones are 9-3 at home this season under fourth-year head coach Greg McDermott (56-59, .487).
