The 2010-11 Colorado men’s basketball schedule will be released on Tuesday as the Buffs prepare for Tad Boyle’s first season in Boulder and perhaps the program’s final season in the Big 12.
Some highlights will include:
* Non-conference home games against Colorado State and Oregon State (teams CU suffered tough road losses to last season).
* An appearance in the Las Vegas Classic. The field also includes Indiana, New Mexico and Northern Iowa.
* Return trips to Harvard and San Francisco (two teams CU beat in Boulder at home under Jeff Bzdelik).
* The home and home with Kansas. Jayhawks fans might be invading the Coors Events Center for the last time (at least as conference foes). Boyle, a former KU player, returns to Allen Fieldhouse.
I’ll be visiting with Tad tomorrow. Be sure to check out buffzone.com for a complete breakdown of the schedule and for other news surrounding CU hoops.
