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:
CU in Seattle
The Buffs will be taking over Seattle on Thursday, March 5, and we want you to be there, too!
The CU-Boulder Alumni Association, Chancellor’s Office, CU Athletics and the President’s Office are teaming up to host a Buff Bash as the women’s basketball team begins play in the Pac-12 Tournament. The Buff Bash will be from 4-6 p.m. in the Potlatch Room of Ivar’s Salmon House. The restaurant is less than five miles from Key Arena, where Linda Lappe’s team will be competing in the conference tournament.
Appetizers will be provided and there will be a cash bar at the Buff Bash.
The CU men’s basketball team also will be in Seattle on March 5. Tad Boyle’s squad tips off against the Washington Huskies at Alaska Airlines Arena at 6 p.m. The arena is just a mile from Ivar’s Salmon House, so be sure to stop by before you head to the game!
Next stop: Las Vegas
Join the CU-Boulder Alumni Association, Chancellor’s Office, CU Athletics and President’s Office in Las Vegas March 11-14 as the men’s basketball team takes on its conference rivals in the Pac-12 Tournament.
The Buffs will be playing at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, but we’ll get you pumped up 2.5 hours prior to each CU game with a free Buff Bash at the Hard Rock Café on The Strip. There will be giveaways and happy hour prices for food and beverages. Athletic director Rick George and Alumni Association executive director Ryan Chreist (Kines’96, MPubAd’09) will deliver remarks as well.
