Jackson State








BOULDER, Co. – The Jackson State men’s basketball team fell to a 1-3 record Saturday when the Tigers fell 94-70 to the University of Colorado Buffaloes at the Coors Events Center. With the win Colorado improves to 3-1.

JSU had three players to score in double figures. Javares Brent led all scorers with 20 points on 7-14 shooting from the field and going 5-12 from three-point range. Julysses Nobles added 16 points and a season high eight assists and Marcus Love came off the bench to add 12 points on 3-6 shooting from the floor.

“They have been the most talented team we have played from every spot,” said JSU head coach Wayne Brent. “You have two guards that have a chance to play in the NBA, you have a post guy who is really good. They have guys that are 6’ 5”, 6’ 6”, they are long and athletic looking. But, just a very talented team.”

Askia Booker led six other double-digit scorers with 15 points.

CU led 46-35 at halftime.

The Tigers return to action Monday, Nov. 18 to face Wyoming. Tipoff is set for 7:30 pm.

Wayne Brent Quotes

On the Team’s Overall Goal Coming In, and What His Players Did Well

“Well we came into the game and we wanted to take them out of their transition. Just watching the film, we saw how they got the other team down the floor really well. No. 25 [CU guard Spencer Dinwiddie] did a good job of pushing the basketball down the floor. I didn’t think we did a great job of getting back and transitioning, making them play five on five. Just looking at some of their film, they hadn’t been shooting it well but they actually shot the ball well last year. They are really talented but they haven’t really shot the ball well but I thought today, they shot it well.”

On How The Altitude Affected His Team

“I think it does [have an impact]. You play here and are running. It feels like you’re going in slow motion and the other team is going full speed, but a lot of that has to do with Colorado being extremely good. But it is a different atmosphere out here. When you’re not used to that, it does play a factor, but it did not play a factor in us losing the game because they were really good.”

On What Made The Difference in the Second Half

“We were down 11 and they had the ball under their basket with five seconds and we got a five second call. We came back on our end and we didn’t score. I think if we had scored right then we could have inched a little closer and put it under double figures. When we didn’t score right there, they came down and hit a couple shots and got a couple easy baskets. I think that was the difference in the game.”
