Location: Amway Center (Orlando, FL)
Prediction: Colorado lost its best player Spencer Dinwiddie to injury halfway through the years, but the Buffs have remained surprisingly solid throughout the year. Colorado finished the year 9-9 after losing Dinwiddie, after a hot 14-3 start with him, but were rewarded for the good start anyway with an eight seed. Pitt is healthy, but as any Big East, and now ACC, fans will remind you, Pitt and the NCAA Tournament do not mix. Colorado should be able to battle Pitt on the glass, and can pull out a win here.
