They took a year off last year, but they’re back!

After a nail-biting selection Sunday, the CU Buffs have reason to celebrate.

And rightfully so.

The University of Colorado men’s basketball team (22-11) are going dancing.They got in as a No. 8 seed in a very, very loaded South Region.

The Buffs will play No. 9-seeded UConn Huskies on Thursday in Des Moines, Iowa in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.

As good as Colorado has been this year, we all know that UConn plays its best basketball at this time of the year and will give Colorado everything that it can handle.

With Colorado entering the tournament yet again, they are making it their fourth NCAA bid in five years.

The winner of this game goes on to face the winner of No. 1 seed Kanas and No. 16 Austin Peay. It will most likely will be Kansas, but then again, it is March and we have seen crazier things happen.

Let’s go Buffs.
