    StatSeed is StatSheet's postseason projections for all of Division I, including the NCAA Tournament, National Invitation Tournament (NIT), College Basketball Invitational (CBI), and the CollegeInsider.com Postseason Tournament (CIT). Read more about how StatSeed is calculated.
    StatSheet is projecting Colorado to make the NCAA Tournament as an eight seed. The Buffaloes are unranked in the AP Poll and sit at #30 in the StatSheet StatRank with a 15-7 overall record and a 5-5 record in the Pac 12.
    Over the last four games, Colorado picked up a quality win against AP #19 Oregon and wins against California and Stanford but also stumbled with a bad loss to RPI #176 Utah.
    Colorado is lukewarm against top competition, with a 7-6 record against the RPI Top 100 that includes a 3-3 record against the RPI Top 50 but a 1-2 record against AP ranked teams. The Buffaloes have three quality wins including AP #19 Oregon, RPI #15 Colorado State, and RPI #49 Baylor. Their single bad loss came against RPI #176 Utah.
    The last four teams into the NCAA Tournament with at-large bids are Arizona State (18-6, 7-4 Pac 12, StatRank #66), Saint Mary's (21-4, 10-1 West Coast, StatRank #51), Wichita State (20-5, 9-4 Missouri Valley, StatRank #46), and Virginia Commonwealth (19-5, 7-2 A-10, StatRank #38).
    The first four teams out are Alabama (15-8, 7-3 SEC, StatRank #69), Boise State (16-7, 4-5 Mountain West, StatRank #49), Southern Miss (18-6, 7-2 C-USA, StatRank #46), and Villanova (15-9, 6-5 Big East, StatRank #67).
    The next four out are California (13-9, 5-5 Pac 12, StatRank #67), Rutgers (12-10, 3-8 Big East, StatRank #68), Saint Louis (18-5, 7-2 A-10, StatRank #56), and Temple (16-7, 5-4 A-10, StatRank #41).

    I'd much rather play Belmont in the 8/9 matchup than get the CSU 7-seed and have to play Kentucky as a 10-seed.

    This is going to change so much, though. And I have to question the StatSheet logic if they've got 6 bids from the Pac-12. We'll likely get 4, with an outside chance at 5.

    Yeah, I did a double-take when I first read the 6 bids for the 12pac.
