Still trying to figure out what happened last night and why you had to lose on hour today of all day's? Don't worry Buffs fans, I know we may not be used to this whole celebrating thing lately, but we're going to have to get used to it.
Your Colorado Buffaloes are headed back to the NCAA Tournament as champions of the inaugural Pac-12 Tournament. They capped off a storybook four day run that included four wins in four nights. Colorado came into the tournament as the sixth seed, slumping off of losses in three of their final four games. They struggled in a 53-41 opening win against Utah. Then came the run. The Buffs took down the two, three and four seeds to leave not a single doubt that they were dancing this March.
Now we eagerly await the tournament selection show at 4 p.m. to see where they are headed and who they play next. Whoever it is, Buff Nation will be there cheering the Buffaloes onto victory. We'll have an open thread up for the announcement at 4 p.m. so come on over and join us. In the meantime, you can watch highlights of the game over and over again on the video player in the sidebar of our home page.
