I give it a solid B.

I don’t consider a 23-win season for CU average. We had a winning conf record and finished higher than projected (5 vs. 7). We played on a Fri in a conf tourney for the first time in 7 years. We won 5 road games and were in position to win a couple more. We were invited to a post-season tourney and made some noise.

For a young team, it was a definite step forward. Two P12 first-teamers. Strong growth in players like Kountz, Battey, Strating and arguably Schwartz. Overcame adversity with the loss of several contributing pieces.

I’ll save an A for years when we make the Big Dance. And you’re right about disappointments in the first half. But the fact that you consider a 23-win season “average” and aren’t celebrating shows how far the program has come and how the bar for CU hoops has been raised under Boyle.
