The Colorado Buffaloes are hoping that Tuesday’s 78-75 comeback win at New Mexico will help catapult them to bigger things this season.
Tad Boyle’s team trailed 32-15 in the first half and were down by as many as 14 points in the second half before pulling out the three-point win.
Tyler Bey and Lucas Seiwert led the way for the Buffaloes with 14 points each, while McKinley Wright added 12. Bey earned a double-double by also posting 11 rebounds to go along with five blocks.
And this gritty performance has Boyle excited about the possibilities ahead for this particular Colorado squad.
“We’ve played in tough places but not gutted out a win,” Boyle said courtesy of the Associated Press. “That’s the difference and that’s something we can use as a stepping stone as we go forward on the season. Certainly, we get into league play, it will give us some confidence.”
Colorado now sits at 8-1 on the season and will get a nice little break before taking on Indiana State on Dec. 22.
After, that the Buffaloes will prepare for a challenging start to Pac-12 play with back-to-back games at Arizona and Arizona State.
