The waiting is over, we now know who the Buffaloes will be facing.

Colorado was selected as an eleven seed and will take on the six-seeded UNLV Runnin' Rebels in the South Region in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Should the Buffs take down UNLV and UCLA transfer Mike Moser they would face either 3-seed Baylor or 14 seed South Dakota State. New Mexico is a short 5.5 hour drive from Boulder and should be attended by a good number of Colorado fans.


UNLV finished the season third in the Mountain West Conference with a 26-8 record. They were knocked out of the conference tournament in a semi-final loss to New Mexico on Friday. They split their season series with Colorado State and took down number one North Carolina in non-conference play. Sophomore forward Mike Moser versus Andre Roberson will be a fantastic match-up to watch.

Most experts thought that the Buffaloes would receive a 12 or 13 seed so this is quite a pleasant surprise. Go ahead and plan to be off work on Thursday now, you have basketball to watch. We'll have plenty more coverage leading up to the game.

Go Buffs!
