CU Basketball on the Rise

The NBA season kicks off tonight and NCAA ball jumps off in Colorado November 12 in Boulder. CU features two potential first round picks in sophomore guard/forward Alec Burks and senior guard Cory Higgins. Basketball across the state of Colorado could be in for lots of publicity this season and Burks looks to be in Chauncey Billups type territory as far as the NBA draft is concerned.

Check out my latest story at SB Nation Denver for a look at CU's upcoming season by clicking here.

Small look:

Both Burks and Higgins were named to the John R. Wooden Award Preseason Top 50 watch list. How big of an honor is it to make this list? Well, consider this: only six teams had two players named to the list ... No. 1 ranked Duke, No. 2 ranked Michigan State, No. 12 ranked Gonzaga, No. 13 ranked Syracuse and unranked CU.
