Heading into their first exhibition game against Colorado School of Mines in Boulder next Wednesday, the Buffaloes Men’s Basketball team has been prepping to get ready for an exciting season. On Saturday, the Buffs took part in the Black and Gold Scrimmage, which had fans and media in attendance.
After a major loss in experience and scoring with the graduation of McKinley Wright IV., head coach Tad Boyle emphasized what he expects out of his underclassman.
“We’re in great shape leadership wise,” said Boyle. “Now it’s time for our young guys to grow up — and we’d better grow up quickly.”
However, after the loss of Wright, seniors Eli Parquet and Evan Battey have taken major leadership roles to influence the younger athletes. On top of a large group of incoming freshman, multiple young players got a large amount of playing time last season.
The Black and Gold Scrimmage gave fans and players the opportunity to get a look at the team we’re working with this season, and we have a lot to look forward to.
