Welcome to Buffaloes Summer Break where CUBuffs.com catches up with Colorado student-athletes and coaching staff members throughout the summer "off season."
Today's installment comes from men's basketball guard Sabatino Chen. A 6-4 senior from Louisville, Colo., Chen saw his first action as a Buffalo last winter after transferring from the University of Denver. He averaged just under 10 minutes per game off the bench for the Buffaloes, helping the squad to the 2012 Pac-12 Tournament championship and the program's first NCAA Tournament berth since 2003.
