NOTABLE: This is the first game of the Nevada Nugget Classic. CU will play Utah State on Saturday to conclude this event. ... CU hits the road for the first time this season. The Buffs were 5-8 in true road games last season. ... This is the first time since 1992 that CU is not playing in its own tournament over Thanksgiving weekend. The Coors/Omni Hotels Classic was a part of the CU schedule every year from 1987-2017, and almost always on Thanksgiving weekend. ... The Buffs are coming off an 86-74 win against North Carolina. ... CU and Nevada have split two previous meetings, but haven't played since CU's 80-60 win in Boulder on Nov. 24, 2006 - during the Coors Classic. ... Leonard is seven steals away from 200 for her career.
