Evan Battey a key player in replacing Tyler Bey’s glass work for CU men’s basketball


Rebounding always has been a critical pillar of Tad Boyle’s program. And this year, the Colorado Buffaloes are charged with the task of replacing one of the best rebounders in program history.

When the Buffs tip off Boyle’s 11th season at the helm on Nov. 25 against South Dakota State, CU officially will begin life after Tyler Bey. Ticketed for a spot in next month’s NBA draft, Bey left CU one year early having firmly etched his name among the Buffs’ all-time rebounders.

Add the loss of 2019-20 senior Lucas Siewert, and the new-look Buffs are missing about 13 rebounds per game from last year’s squad.
