Pitt has staked the early claim to being the underdog against Colorado.
“We have been preaching since the start of the ACC tournament that we are the underdog,” Dixon said. “That was our mentality, that was our thinking and we wanted to play that way.
“But we also talked about playing on the road or playing in neutral court games. We have had great success.”
A key for the Colorado men's basketball team against defensive-minded Pittsburgh in an NCAA Tournament game Thursday in Orlando, Fla., will be whether 6-foot-10 sophomore Josh Scott can fight through double-teams, Buffaloes coach Tad Boyle said Monday.
"Pittsburgh is a very physical team, a very good defensive team," Boyle said. "We're going to work with Josh (on double-teams)....

Nebraska Cornhuskers offensive lineman Alex Lewis, who started his college career with the Colorado Buffaloes, was sentenced Friday to 45 days in jail and given two years of probation after pleading guilty to third-degree assault chargers stemming from his role in a fight that occurred in May of last year.
According to the Boulder Daily Camera, Lewis will be allowed to finish his...

Should He Stay Or Should He Go?
On January 8, 2014, Spencer Dinwiddie had a bad game.
Dinwiddie scored only six points, but his Colorado Buffaloes survived in overtime that Wednesday night to defeat Washington State, 71-70, in overtime. The win, sloppy though it was, pushed CU’s record to 14-2, 3-0 in Pac-12 play. Colorado was ranked No. 15 in the nation, and had a record...
Colorado point guard Spencer Dinwiddie is the latest to leave school early and enter what's become a loaded 2014 NBA Draft.
The Buffaloes junior made the decision official Thursday afternoon at a press conference. He becomes the fifth CU player in history to leave school early for the NBA.
"I got a lot of interest from the league," Dinwiddie said. "Everybody likes what I bring...
Spencer Dinwiddie, Colorado’s do everything point guard, is leaving for the NBA. Dinwiddie was only able to play in 17 games for the Buffaloes last season due to injury, but his impact on the team was substantial. Dinwiddie had nearly a 130 offensive rating, shot 51.5% from two, 41% from three, 86% from the line, had an assist rate 11% higher than his turnover rate, and drew a...
Spencer Dinwiddie will declare his eligibility for the NBA Draft, foregoing his final season of eligibility at the University of Colorado
Dinwiddie missed the 2013-14 season’s last 18 games with an ACL injury that required reconstructive surgery.

Spencer Dinwiddie has officially declared for the 2014 NBA Draft on June 26th. This was clearly a difficult decision for Dinwiddie, especially after tearing his ACL. He had to declare by April 27th, but can still withdraw his name from the draft by June 16th.
This is a definite loss for the Buffs because Dinwiddie was their best player far and away. Even though they are losing Dinwiddie...
The transition from the Big 12 conference to the Pac 12 conference has certainly not been an easy one for the Colorado Buffaloes football team. Not only have they been unable to find any real success in the new conference, but they are also without one of the most important aspects of college football: a true rival.
When the Buffaloes left the Big 12 in 2011, they were knowingly...

Colorado’s hot start was one of the best storylines of the early college basketball regular season. The Buffaloes had lost the Pac-12′s leading rebounder in forward Andre Roberson to the 2013 NBA Draft, but Tad Boyle’s bunch still started the season 14-2, including a statement win against Kansas.
But much of that momentum was derailed on January 12th, as star junior guard...
