The Colorado Buffaloes have been selected to the NCAA Tournament for the second straight season. Tad Boyle and his Buffs are a ten-seed and will face off against seven-seeded Illinois in Austin, Texas. Should (when) the Buffs take down the Fighting Illini, they would play the winner of two-seed Miami against 15-seed Pacific. Illinois is an interesting match-up for the Buffs that they should be favored to win. The team hasn't been playing their best ball lately and can't take any tournament game lightly.

Arizona, UCLA, Cal and Oregon were the other Pac-12 teams selected. Colorado State is an eight-seed and will play Missouri in the opening round.

Pac-12 and local games:

Friday
#6 Arizona vs. #11 Belmont

Saturday
#6 UCLA vs. #11 Minnesota
#5 UNLV vs. #12 California
#5 Oklahoma St. vs. #12 Oregon
