Intrigue in Boulder: Roberson cancels his stay-or-go press conference . . .

A decision with weighty ramifications for next season’s Pac-12 men’s basketball race is on hold. Andre Roberson, the double-double machine at Colorado, had scheduled a Friday-morning press conference to announce his decision about an early entry to the NBA, but the school sent out word at 5:45 a.m. Pacific time that the event was canceled, with no new one scheduled.

CU coach Tad Boyle told the Denver Post Friday, “He’s not at the point where he wants to make that decision. He’s just not there yet . . . Andre sees the benefits and risks of both, and he’s weighing those benefits and risks.”

You could read Roberson’s indecision either way. Now he has until Sunday night to make a final call on it. He’s relatively unpolished offensively, and not expected to go in the first round of the draft.

It’s a big moment for the Buffs, who would return their top five scorers from an NCAA-tournament team if he comes back. If they do, they’ll be regarded as a threat to Arizona at the top of the league.
