SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico — Back to reality.
I had a wonderful time covering the Puerto Rico Tip-off and touring the island between games. I definitely checked off some must-see destinations — El Castillo San Felipe del Morro, El Yunque National Forest and the Luquillo Beach — during the trip.
The Buffs finished 1-2 and in seventh place, losing to Wichita State and Maryland before pulling out an 81-76 victory over Western Michigan. Tad Boyle had higher hopes for his revamped Colorado program at Coliseo de Puerto Rico, but the team leaves here confident it can compete with quality opposition.
It will be interesting to see how CU, which traveled back to Boulder on Monday, recovers from this extended road trip with a pre-Thanksgiving appetizer to take care of at Air Force on Wednesday night.
Until then Buffs fans.
