That's the first question opponents are going to ask themselves when defending and boxing out Colorado this season.
It's also a question some of the 10,611 fans were probably asking on Friday night during CU's 74-59 victory over Wofford College at the Coors Events Center.
Roberson, who was named to the preseason Wooden Award watch list on Thursday, was held to seven points and six rebounds in the opener after averaging 11.6 points and 11.1 rebounds last season.
"Being the pro prospect on our team, everybody is going to focus on him," point guard Spencer Dinwiddie said of the reigning Pac-12 rebounding leader. "I think he pressed a little bit. You're going to see him relaxed next game ...
With 6-10 freshman Josh Scott playing in the post, Roberson is adjusting to more of a hybrid wing position. The 6-7 junior was just 2-for-8 shooting but finished with three steals, two assists and two blocks in 31 minutes.
"He's changing roles a little bit," CU head coach Tad Boyle said. "The other part of it is he's never had defenses that were geared to stopping him."
The 2012-13 Buffs opened the campaign in front of the largest nonconference regular-season crowd (10,611) in program history. It was announced as the 10th sellout of the Boyle era (the previous nine were conference games).
During the 1991 NIT run at the Coors Events Center CU drew crowds of 11,291 vs.
CU has also sold 6,002 season tickets to date, which shatters the record of 3,941 set last season.
"I can't say enough about our fans," Boyle said.
Instead of a traditional banner, CU unveiled a piece of hanging Flatirons-colored sandstone honoring the Buffs' Pac-12 Tournament championship and NCAA Tournament appearance.
"We took this opportunity to showcase our first Pac-12 championship in basketball in a unique way, one that marries itself to what Boulder is all about," CU athletic director Mike Bohn said. "Incorporating the Flatirons, which of course were here before anything else, with the sandstone that distinguishes our campus in an unparalleled presentation within the beauty of Boulder itself. This speaks to a rock solid foundation, our tradition, as well as the future of CU athletics."
Adams out, four frosh in
Jeremy Adams, who has not been able to practice consistently this preseason due to a knee injury, did not suit up for the opener.
"It's a day by day thing," Adams said at CU's basketball media day last month. "I'm close right now. I just want to make sure I don't reaggravate the injury before the season starts."
A total of nine players saw action for CU, including four freshmen. Chris Jenkins and Wesley Gordon will redshirt this season.
"When Jeremy gets back we'll be 10 deep," Boyle said.
