If you are a fan of college basketball and enjoy watching student athletes from around the state compete, then our local teams have you covered this weekend. Thursday we have the CU Buffs playing host to Washington State in Boulder.
The busy day for college hoops in Colorado is Saturday as you will have your pick of games to choose from. My pick would be to head on up to Greeley and catch Northern Colorado take on Montana in the afternoon for a Big Sky Conference matchup against the Grizzlies. The Bears enter Saturday with a 10-5 overall record and are 4-0 in conference play.
If you are looking for a night cap this weekend the Buffs have you covered as the Washington Huskies will be in Boulder to take on the Buffs.
