Pac-12 teams have shined in the 2021 NCAA Tournament so far. Colorado hopes to keep the momentum going when it faces Florida State in the second round on Monday.

 

The fifth-seeded Buffaloes (23-8) dominated Big East Tournament champion Georgetown for the better part of 40 minutes on their way to a 96-73 first-round victory over the No. 12 seed Hoyas. Colorado flat-out sizzled from the perimeter. The Buffaloes went 16-of-25 from 3-point range and got 24 points from Jabari Walker, along with 12 points and 13 assists from McKinley Wright IV.

During the final two months of last season, Colorado went 12–4 and reached the quarterfinals of the NIT. Every player who saw the court during that stretch is back, and two of them — Tyler Bey and McKinley Wright IV — were first-team All-Pac-12 performers. 


Coach Tad Boyle, in his 10th season, has spent the past two years rebuilding his team and leaning on youth. Now that they’ve grown up, the Buffs’ expectations are higher than they’ve been in a long time.
