BOULDER— The final countdown has begun for the four seniors from the Colorado men’s basketball program.
This week Josh Fortune, Derrick White, Xavier Johnson, and Wesley Gordon will play their final two home games for the Buffaloes, with CU hosting Stanford on Thursday before completing the regular season on Senior Day Saturday afternoon against Cal.
Of that quartet, only Johnson and Gordon played their entire careers in Boulder, with both players arriving for the 2012-13 season and enduring separate redshirt seasons along the way.

LAWRENCE, Kan. — Frank Mason III walked toward the court with his son by his side, flanked by his father, who tried in vain to hold back to the tears before his son played his final game at Allen Fieldhouse.
“I couldn’t believe that this was the last time,” the elder Mason said later, reflecting on the pregame ceremony.
CLEVELAND — LeBron James returned from sickness, and the Cavaliers felt a whole lot better.
Still not quite himself, James came back after missing one game with strep throat and scored 24 points, Kyrie Irving added 25 and Cleveland capped a solid February with a 102-95 win over the Milwaukee Bucks on Monday night.
James sat out Saturday’s loss to Chicago — the Cavs fell to 0-4 this season without their superstar — and was listed as questionable before arriving at Quicken Loans Arena and getting in a workout.
