Released last week, there already has been a slight alteration to the Colorado Buffaloes' 2016-17 men's basketball schedule.

CU's road date against defending Pac-12 Conference regular season and tournament champion Oregon has been moved up one day. Instead of squaring off on Sunday, Feb. 19, the Buffs instead will take on the Ducks at 1 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 18 in Eugene, Ore. The game still is slated to be broadcast nationally by FOX.

The schedule adjustment leaves CU with a pair of Thursday-Saturday sets among the team's four multi-game road trips in the conference. The Buffs play at Oregon State on Thursday, Feb. 16 and also have a Thursday-Saturday swing at Arizona State (Jan. 5) and Arizona (Jan. 7).
