While the mens team has been struggling with some identity issues, their hoops playing partners in the CEC have been tearing up the court. Off to their best start since the early 90's, the CU womens basketball team is lapping their male counterparts in the early goings of the season. Sitting pretty at 8-0 on the year, they're lead by second year coach Linda Lappe, and are starting to remind me of the good ole days when the womens program could be counted on for a guaranteed Tournament appearance each season.

While we'll really see what this team is made of come the start of conference play in January, it's good to note that the Buffs have clocked each of their eight previous opponents by double figures. All told, they average a winning margin of almost 20 points/game. If you're going to play questionable competition, you might as well smack them around a little bit.
If you're ready to be caught up with the so-far perfect Buffs (and you should be), you should check them out this Saturday against the WSU Wildcats. If you can't make it to the CEC on Saturday, you won't have another chance to see them play in person until after the Holidays, as the next home game is January 12th against Cal.
Keep up the good work, ladies!
