The Colorado Buffaloes kept alive their slim chance at being an at-large team in the NCAA Tournament with a 67-57 win over the Nebraska Cornhuskers. This victory marked the last regular season game between the two as members of the Big 12 as they leave for the Pac-12 and the Big 10, respectively.

Senior Marcus Relphorde led the team with 19 points, five rebounds, four steals and two assists. He nailed all three three-pointers he attempted and made all four of his free throws. Levi Knutson added 13 points. Alec Burks and Cory Higgins each scored 12 points. Andre Roberson had a team-high 10 rebounds.

Nebraska had a three-way lead in scoring at 10 points with Jorge Brian Diaz, Toney McCray and Lance Jeter.

The Big 12 Conference Tournament begins on March 9. The Buffs will be the No. 5 seed.
