NCAA Bracket 2012 Reactions: Colorado Buffaloes Continue March Madness

In a year that has seen some pretty poor Pac-12 basketball, the Colorado Buffaloes, first-year members of the conference, are making a surprising run in the 2012 NCAA Tournament. Following Thursday's 68-84 victory over the UNLV Rebels, the Buffaloes now get to face the No. 3 Baylor Bears on Saturday for a spot in the Sweet 16. However, not everything is great after seeing a 20-point lead evaporate. As the Ralphie Report writes:

Things the Buffaloes struggled with: Colorado had 23 turnovers in the game, which was a season high. Consequently, they let a lead of 20 points evaporate. The Buffaloes made some errant passes inbounding and the Buffaloes looked scared to dribble up the court against UNLV's press. Ultimately, it didn't matter, but Colorado has to work on their press break if they want to win their next game.

The Bears had trouble finishing off the No. 14 South Dakota Jackrabbits before pulling out a 68-60 victory in the Round of 64. Can the Buffaloes take out some revenge on the Big 12, their former home?
