His assist-to-turnover rate stood at just 1.56 before missing the Utah game but he has compiled a 2.08 mark since his return. At crunch time at USC the ball was in Wright’s hands, and he responded with a pair of late driving layups, the last of which provided the go-ahead tally for the Buffs with 1 minute, 36 seconds remaining. He also turned in what surely will be one of the highlights of the season when he took advantage of USC’s inattention during an in-bounds play to pass the ball off a USC player’s back to earn an easy layup en route to a team-leading 20 points. “Big-time play,” said CU coach Tad Boyle. “I turned to our staff and I said, ‘That’s why I like coaching that kid.’ He makes those kinds of plays. That wasn’t something that was called. That was McKinley Wright being McKinley Wright being the astute, smart player that he is. He makes plays. He’s a special one. “I do think that game he sat out at Utah, McKinley is a smart player. I’ve always said this since he’s been on campus that he’s a self-corrector. So when he makes mistakes, he corrects those things himself. He’s been much, much more efficient since he’s come back.” BUFFS «FROM 1B showing clear signs of improvement as the season progresses. His leadership aside, resurgent play from Wright also has played a critical factor. Wright missed one game due to the shoulder injury, being forced to watch as the Buffs quickly fell behind by 22 points in a loss at Utah Jan. 20. In the six games since his return, Wright has been a markedly more efficient player. “My teammates just told me to be more aggressive,” Wright said. “They told me for us to win, I’ve got to be able to make plays. Every one of them, they all told me I had to play better. I didn’t take it personal. I promised them that I’d be playing better. I think I’ve been showcasing it, but I still could do more in taking care of the ball a little better.” Prior to his one-game absence, Wright was shooting a solid .510 from the floor but had struggled to a .250 mark on 3-pointers. In the past six games, Wright has shot .527 overall (29-for-55) while going 8-for-19 on 3pointers (.421). Of much more importance to the Buffs has been Wright’s improved ballhandling. While his assist average has dipped slightly — it was 5.3 per game before missing the Utah game and is 4.2 since — his turn- CALL NOW FOR A FREE IN-HOME QUOTE (303) 993-1653 PGA Tour SCHEDULE Monday — Completion of final round in AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, Pebble Beach, Spyglass Hill, Monterey Peninsula (Shore Course), Pebble Beach, Calif.
