On the latest episode of At the Buzzer, we bring on a very special guest, Sabatino Chen, who is the namesake of this podcast. Chen played at Colorado during the 2011-12 and 2012-13 seasons, played in the NCAA Tournament in both years, and, most importantly, made a game-winning buzzer-beater against Arizona that was called off (it was good).
Chen became a folk hero in his time at Colorado. He embodied the spirit of TadBall as he worked his ass off on defense, is left handed, and made winning plays whenever he was on the floor. He’s also just a good dude who was a joy to interview. We talked to him about those two seasons, his infamous buzzer-beater, what it’s like to play under Tad Boyle, and his expectations about the 2019-20 Buffaloes squad.
