Arizona Wildcats Should Be Worried About Colorado Buffaloes

The Arizona Wildcats are ranked No. 1 in the county, but they should be worried about the Colorado Buffaloes.

Colorado just got done ending the Oregon Ducks‘ perfect season. Plus, the Buffs dropped 100 points in that contest. Bad defense or not, reaching the century mark in college hoops is quite the feat.

Tad Boyle‘s team has now beaten Harvard, Kansas and Oregon. The Buffs have lost to Oklahoma State and Baylor.

The Wildcats have arguably been the best team so far, which is probably why they hold the No. 1 ranking in college basketball. Coming into the season, the Pac-12 was supposed to be competitive, but the Wildcats were definitely the favorites. Not much has changed, but now it is evident that Arizona is not the only national title contender in this conference.

Colorado has to be mentioned in that subject now and Oregon, Stanford, UCLA and Arizona State are going to get a lot of respect.

The Buffs returned a bunch of players from last season, but none better than Askia Booker and Spencer Dinwiddie. However, Josh Scott and others have been impressive as well.

This is a team that has one of the best backcourts in the Pac-12–possibly the nation–and this is also a team that can challenge Arizona for a conference title.

The Wildcats are still a perfect 15-0, but Colorado’s 13-2 record is not too shabby, especially since those two losses came against teams who are currently ranked in the top 10.

With that in mind, Arizona could very well be the Pac-12 champs at the end of the season, but don’t be surprised when the Buffaloes steal the show and win the title.
