Recapping Colorado Buffaloes Basketball & Athletics News, Links, and Stories
There was a large crowd on hand Saturday evening at the Meadows Club, where the University of Colorado women's tennis team put on an impressive show, beating the visitors from Fort Collins, 6-1. The Buffaloes continued a winning streak against Colorado State University that has lasted throughout the entire series (CU leads all-time 26-0). CU improves to 15-0 against the Rams when playing in Boulder.
The cancellation of Thursday's men's giant slalom meant that the team points in the slalom would be doubled here Saturday in the Alaska-Anchorage Seawolf Invitational, normally a good thing for a defending national champion University of Colorado ski team traditionally strong in that event. The Buffaloes trailed Utah by 13 points entering the day, the margin increasing to 33 despite five CU women skiers finishing in the top 12. However, the men's slalom proved to be a total disaster and Colorado would finish third, only the school's second result outside the top two in its last 14 meets dating back to 2010.
