NOTABLE: The Buffs have won seven of eight games against Idaho State, including a 5-0 mark in Boulder. The programs have met just twice since 1982, with CU posting a 73-57 win in the most recent meeting on Dec. 30, 2008…The resurgent Buffs are coming off a historic 112-54 rout of Southeastern Louisiana. It was CU’s first 100-point game in 11 years and the fifth-highest scoring total in the program’s history. CU tied a team record with 16 blocked shots and posted its best rebounding total (65) in 27 years…CU already has matched its win total from the entire 2015-16 season…Boulder High alum April Dawson, a senior, is a reserve forward for Idaho State…The Buffs will be idle until Thursday when they host state rival Colorado State.
