Austin Dufault, a sophomore forward, looks forward to the upcoming basketball season.

Both basketball teams will play in Colorado plenty of times in the early part of the season. Of the women’s first 14 games, 11 will take place at home and another at Colorado State. The men, meanwhile, will be at home for seven of their first dozen games, in addition to playing another contest
at CSU.

The men are looking to rebound after three straight 20-loss seasons.

“One of the coaches said that if we didn’t do anything this off-season we’d still be a better team next year,” sophomore forward Austin Dufault told the Boulder Camera during the summer. “But we’ve been working extremely hard this off-season and hopefully with the new guys coming in, combined with the experience we got last year, we can put it together and have a good year.”

The CU women also hope to bounce back this season, having finished 11-18 in 2008-09.
