The Buffs are a much-improved team but still not exactly poster boys for their power conference.
Colorado lost 74-69 at Oregon State last Friday.
The Big 12 still leads the third annual Hardwood Series against Pac-10 by an impressive 8-2 count.
Iowa State, which lost 82-63 to Cal, is the only other Big 12 school to lose so far.
The Buffs (5-3) will try to improve to 5-0 at the Coors Events Center tonight against Colorado Christian.
However, CU is still looking for a “quality win” after difficult losses to Gonzaga, Arizona and Oregon State.
