With the first of two preseason show games less than two weeks ago, the Buffaloes took another step to solidify their 2021-22 rotation by hosting their annual roster attack Saturday morning at the CU Events Center.

“Teams at the top of the leaderboard seemed to be getting the ball in paint and they came to the free throw line,” said CU head coach Tad Boyle. “The teams that didn’t succeed were accepting shots and not putting too much foul pressure on the other team and they couldn’t get the ball into the paint. We have to learn from this offensively.

“This is an opportunity to get a lot of movies in the box so to speak, and we can evaluate and analyze it and help us get our young guys up to speed. Because we’re going to have to play with some young, inexperienced guys, there’s no doubt about it.”

The Buffs played two 20-minute halves on Saturday morning with free substitutions and even a few midgame players switching sides.

However, with the Black Team opening against Evan Battey, Tristan da Silva, Nique Clifford, KJ Simpson, and Keeshawn Barthelemy, and the White Team’s first players Lawson Lovering, Julian Hammond, Luke O’Brien, the starting combinations in each half remained relatively intact. , Jabari Walker and Elijah Parke.
