"As a student at CU, and being an African American student, it’s hard to always be standing out and people always make these small unintentional comments that they don’t really know hurt students," said Nurta Mohamed, a senior who’s also president of the African Students’ Association.

On the day he became the first player from the Colorado football program to earn first team All-Pac-12 Conference honors, wide receiver Paul Richardson announced he is turning pro following a historic junior season.
"I had a great experience here at Colorado," Richardson said at the end of the season news conference for coach Mike MacIntyre on Monday. "I’ve had a lot of coaching staffs, but I’ve had these same teammates, a lot of them, for the past four years and it’s been awesome."
After adding 20 pounds of muscle in the offseason, Colorado sophomore Josh Scott came into this season with a re-charged sense of confidence.
When CU opponents guard him one-on-one, Scott’s confidence level raises even higher.
On Monday night, Scott scored a season-high 20 points and pulled down five rebounds to help the Buffaloes to a 93-70 victory against Arkansas State at Coors Events Center.
"They were single-coveraging me and they weren’t digging hard," the 6-foot-10, 245-pound Scott said. "If you’re going to give me that, I’m probably going to score."
