Colorado Buffaloes Will Have One of the Best Backcourts In the Pac-12

The Colorado Buffaloes are coming off of a second straight NCAA tournament appearance, but they very well could make a third straight dance in the 2013-14 college basketball season. A big reason for that is the Buffaloes’ backcourt, which will be one of the best in the Pac-12.

Spencer Dinwiddie led the Buffs in scoring last season, with 15.3 points per game. However, Askia Booker was not too far behind, with 12.4 points per game.

Both players very well could go off in the upcoming season.

Dinwiddie and Booker can both hit the three-ball, but they will find ways to put the ball in the hoop regardless. Andre Roberson leaving will hurt the team defensively, but Colorado should have no problem scoring in the upcoming season.

This is a team that is on the verge of winning a Pac-12 title, although it did win the conference tournament a season ago. Coming over to the Pac-12 from the Big-12 was a very smart decision for this school–basketball wise–and it is paying off with the Buffaloes becoming a team that makes the Big Dance on a yearly basis.

Regardless, there is going to be a lot of new faces in the conference, but Colorado’s backcourt duo will have one more year of experience, which will help make it one of the most talented in the Pac-12.

You can expect these two players to lead the team in scoring once again in the 2013-14 season. Colorado may not be known as a basketball school, but it has surely looked like it over the last few years.
