Will Colorado punch a ticket to the Sweet Sixteen?
On Thursday, the Colorado Buffaloes kept the momentum gained from winning the Pac-12 Tournament and ambushed UNLV, ultimately hanging on for a 68-64 victory. The task gets tougher in the third round of the 2012 NCAA Tournament, where the Buffaloes will face third-seeded Baylor.
Colorado will need to rebound well at the defensive end -- something the Buffs have done all year -- as a means of slowing down a very athletic Baylor offense.
Game Date & Time: Saturday, March 17, 6:40 p.m. MT
