Buffs basketball season is here
The college basketball season is underway at the University of Colorado.
Throughout the season, the CU-Boulder Alumni Association will be giving away tickets to Buffs’ home games via our Facebook page, so be sure to check it out. There’s plenty of action on the road, too:
Diamond Head Classic
The men’s basketball team is playing in the Diamond Head Classic in Honolulu, Hawaii, this month. The Buffs begin the eight-team tournament Dec. 22 against DePaul (2:30 p.m. MT, ESPNU). A CU win will set up a game against the winner of the George Washington-Ohio game on Dec. 23 and the championship game is scheduled for Christmas Day. Other teams in the tournament include Wichita State, Nebraska, Loyola Marymount and host Hawaii.
Want to be close to the Buffs? Plan your stay at the team hotel: Outrigger Reef Waikiki Beach Resort.
ESPN also has travel packages available for fans heading to Honolulu to see the Buffs this holiday season.
Forever Buffs take over Los Angeles
The Alumni Association will host two special events during the CU men’s basketball team’s road trip to Los Angeles in January. Following the 6:30 p.m. game at Southern California on Jan. 29, we will host a reception at The 1880 Room at the Radisson Hotel at USC, located one block south of the Galen Center. Avoid the post-game traffic and join us from 8-10 p.m. – hopefully to celebrate at CU victory!
On Saturday, Jan. 31, we will host a pre-game Buff Bash prior to CU’s game at UCLA, which tips off at 7:30 p.m. The event will begin at 5 p.m. at the W Hotel Los Angeles, just a short walk from Pauley Pavilion.
Not from the L.A. area, but planning on making the trip to see the Buffs play? Stay at the team hotel: Omni Los Angeles Hotel at California Plaza.
The Alumni Association is already making plans for you to experience the postseason with the Buffs. The women’s Pac-12 Conference tournament is March 5-8 in Seattle and details of our event will be coming soon. The Pac-12 men’s tournament is slated for March 11-14 in Las Vegas and we will host events before each Buffs game at the Hard Rock Cafe on The Strip. Check back for more details as soon as we have them.
