--- Tre'Shaun Fletcher of Lincoln High School is a freshman this season at Colorado, so he's looking forward to playing well in front of friends and family tomorrow at Hec Edmundson. We spoke with Fletcher on the phone yesterday and will pass along a few of his comments later.

--- USC is trying to stay confident as it prepares to host No. 1 Arizona.
