  • Klee: The perfect NCAA tournament bracket? Ask the champ

    Updated: Thu, Mar 20, 2014

    DENVER — This is how you start a riot in an NBA locker room: Break out a bracket. Sure enough, just as I slipped the blank sheet to Nuggets forward Darrell Arthur, the lobbyists infiltrated his locker space, school pride in tow. "How far you got Baylor?" Quincy Miller wanted to...

  • Klee: Next step for NCAA-bound Buffs: Win in March

    Updated: Mon, Mar 17, 2014

    BOULDER — The Selection Sunday celebrations are shorter now, with far less pomp and pageantry. Tad Boyle's Buffs won't strain a shoulder patting their backs. "We're starting practice at 1:30," Boyle said sternly Monday as his players streamed onto the court at Coors Events Center....

  • Klee: UCCS is building a NCAA title contender? Believe it

    Updated: Sun, Mar 16, 2014

    DENVER — This one will tickle. The potential game-winning 3-pointer that scraped the wrong side of the rim. The collision that sent Alex Welsh to a trash can with an eruption of a bloodied nose, Treshawn Wilford into a series of concussion tests. This one hurt. After UCCS lost,...

  • KLEE: CMHS senior keeps faith after basketball dream is taken

    Published: Fri, Mar 14, 2014

    BOULDER — His memories of that night, of that game, flash through his mind in HD. They are eternally stuck on replay: Cheyenne Mountain's five-point lead with 3 minutes left, the crowd clapping in unison as the clock trickled to 00:00; his parents waving to him from the bleachers,...

  • Klee: College recruiting a dizzying trail for Mesa Ridge sophomore

    Updated: Fri, Mar 14, 2014

    BOULDER - What were you doing at 13? Kylee Shook was earning her first verbal scholarship offer, from the University of Colorado, following her second high school game at Mesa Ridge. She was taking a recruiting visit to Washington. She was 6-feet of gangly, giggly potential. At 13,...

  • Klee: With Peyton Manning window closing, Broncos go big

    Updated: Thu, Mar 13, 2014

    ENGLEWOOD — So, DeMarcus Ware. Is this a Dream Team? "I wouldn't say that," the former Cowboys star said with a smile. Phew. The new Broncos passed their first test. No silly guarantees. The new Broncos know this won't be easy. The old Broncos already learned that, back on a...

  • Klee: Why not us? Ray Bourque gets an assist for Avs' revival

    Updated: Wed, Mar 12, 2014

    DENVER — Where did this all begin, this stirring revival of the Colorado Avalanche? Try a restaurant. But not just any restaurant. Not some chain joint in Park Meadows with wall photos of the staff’s sixth-place softball team, or even the hot new spot in LoDo, complete with $18...

  • Klee: Eric Decker, Shaw's Nuggets and The Kid

    Updated: Sun, Mar 9, 2014

    DENVER — Codeine cough syrup prevents driving and clear thought. But it has a profound effect on tying flies. So, after a few down days with a cough from hell, my streamer boxes are sufficiently full for April, May and into June's runoff. And now I'm feeling fine, thanks. Just...

  • Klee: Champ Bailey gone but worth remembering

    Updated: Thu, Mar 6, 2014

    DENVER — When I remember Champ Bailey's career with the Broncos, the memory will be this. Prior to each practice, whether in training camp's August heat or December's breezy chill, Champ would stroll from the locker room to the east sideline, then stop, suddenly. He would lean on...

  • KLEE: Time to bust the bracket, tweak NCAA Tournament

    Updated: Fri, Feb 28, 2014

    DENVER - Fixing college basketball won't be easy. That's OK; we have time, and with million-dollar TV contracts, the game's not going anywhere. The new freedom-of-movement rules eventually will offer a nice measure of progress. Someday, hopefully, we'll straighten out the crooked...
