Struggles continue for CU Buffs men’s basketball in loss against Washington – The Denver Post


Getting back to the CU Events Center more often than not has brought out the best in the wildly inconsistent Colorado men’s basketball team this season.

Not this time.

CU’s struggles continued on Thursday against visiting Washington, as the Huskies handed the Buffaloes a 75-72 defeat. CU has lost three consecutive games for the first time this season and fell deeper into the bottom half of the Pac-12 Conference standings.

The Buffs played shorthanded as senior Jalen Gabbidon missed his sixth consecutive game due to a knee injury. He was joined on the sideline by reserve guard Javon Ruffin, who suffered a knee injury this week at practice.

UW led through much of the first half and held a 33-26 lead at halftime. The Huskies pushed their lead to 13 points on a Keion Brooks 3-pointer with more than 13 minutes remaining, and while the Buffs made a few dents in the Huskies’ advantage, UW always mustered a response.
