The 2011 Big 12 Tournament enters the semifinals round today, featuring a Kansas Jayhawks-Colorado Buffaloes match-up followed by a Texas Longhorns-Texas A&M Aggies tilt. Kansas, looking for a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament, beat the Buffs in both games they played this season. Will CU be able to pull off an upset and then play in the tournament championship? Alec Burks and company would like to think so.
If CU is able to do that, either the Longhorns or the Aggies await them. The Buffs won their only game against the Longhorns, 91-89, but dropped their game against the Aggies, 73-70, in overtime.
It would be a great storyline if the Buffs make it to the championship game and win the tournament title since it is their last season in the conference. We'll find out how far that can go when the teams tip off at 5:00 p.m. MT on Altitude2.
