Oklahoma State Basketball will continue living life on the road when they take on the Colorado Buffaloes in Boulder. This is an important game for a Cowboy team that got absolutely manhandled in their last outing. Lose big again in Boulder and the confidence of the team might suffer.

Colorado is 13-4 on the year and is currently riding a six game winning steak with wins against #8 Missouri and #21 Kansas State.

The Buffs are led by sophomore guards Alec Burks and senior Cory Higgins.

Alec Burks is an absolute monster. He is averaging close to 20 points per game and worst of all, he's 6-6. He had 36 points against the #8 Missouri Tigers last weekend. Cory Higgins is no slouch either. He's 6-5 and is averaging 16 points a game.

Needless to say, Ray Penn and Keiton Page will have their hands full.

In addition to having  guards that are the same size as Marshall Moses, the Buffs are second in the Big 12 in scoring with an 84.4 ppg average. They shoot nearly 50% from the floor and are 38% from three point land. So what don't the Buffs do well? Play Defense. Colorado allow 71 points per game with opponents shooting 43%. 

 Now before you just throw in the towl from the intimidating picture that I've painted, understand this:

The Buffs loss three games early in the season to San Francisco, Georgia and Harvard.  

This is who killed them in the San Francisco game

Who is this you ask? Angelo Caloiaro. The dude had 26 points against the Buffs on November 20th.

So it won't be easy, but it's possible to steal one on the road against these guys. Just don't quit when you're down 10. Don't turn the ball over and most importantly, make your shots.

If none of that works, channel your inner Angelo.
