College Hoops – CSU at CU

The CU Buffaloes hosted the CSU Rams in the in state rivalry in front of a record crowd last Wednesday night.  Over 11,000 fans jammed into the Coors Event Center to watch the Buffs manhandle the Rams.  I guess you could say it was revenge for the Rams beating the CU Buffaloes in football earlier in the year.  Here is my take on the game.

It was a wild game, and to top it off, I had a great time in the media room, getting through my images very quickly, editing, captioning, and sending off to Cal Sport Media, and I was the first one out of the media room to go home.  It felt good, until I got home and realized I left my Macbook power cable in the media room.  I had to go back to Boulder the next morning to get it since it would be over 10 days before the teams would be back home.
