    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 now projecting Colorado to be a four seed in the NCAA Tournament. The Buffaloes are unranked in the AP Poll and sit at #24 in the StatSheet StatRank with a 17-7 overall record and a 7-5 record in the Pac 12.
    During its last four games, Colorado registered quality wins against AP #9 Arizona and AP #23 Oregon and a win against Oregon State but also suffered some damage with a bad loss to RPI #157 Utah.
    Colorado is average against top competition, with a 7-6 record against the RPI Top 100 that includes a 4-3 record against the RPI Top 50 and a 3-2 record against AP ranked teams. The Buffaloes have four quality wins including AP #9 Arizona, AP #23 Oregon, AP #24 Colorado State, and RPI #45 Baylor. Their only bad loss came against RPI #157 Utah.
    The last four teams into the NCAA Tournament with at-large bids are Southern Miss (19-6, 8-2 C-USA, StatRank #41), California (15-9, 7-5 Pac 12, StatRank #53), Boise State (16-7, 4-5 Mountain West, StatRank #40), and Alabama (16-8, 8-3 SEC, StatRank #59).
    The first four teams out are Florida State (13-11, 5-6 ACC, StatRank #82), Rutgers (13-10, 4-8 Big East, StatRank #78), Texas A&M (15-9, 5-6 SEC, StatRank #75), and Villanova (15-10, 6-6 Big East, StatRank #71).
    The next four out are Maryland (17-7, 5-6 ACC, StatRank #72), Massachusetts (16-7, 6-4 A-10, StatRank #47), Charlotte (18-6, 6-4 A-10, StatRank #48), and Tennessee (13-10, 5-6 SEC, StatRank #75).

    6 Pac:12 teams? They make everything seem so unrealistic when they do stuff like that.

    A #4 seed would be amazing.

    Hard to believe we could be a #4 seed unless we win the pac12 tourny.

    Yeah, we already know the bias of the selection committee won't give us that much credit. Plus the loss at Utah is a ding. Would love anything above a 7; those 7/8 slots are an almost guaranteed 2nd round exit.

    I don't see a #4 seed as feasible unless we win out and win the tourney...which could happen...but not likely. Somewhere between #6-10 is my completely uninformed guess.

    I'm not ready to lose the chip on my shoulder, so I have decided to feel disrespected by this StatSheet projection.

    Region 2 is balls deep with great teams. Indiana, florida, and Kansas. You could make a case for all three to be #1 seeds.
