    It should be a lively atmosphere at Staples Center on Wednesday as Colorado goes up against Utah in the Pacific 12 Conference Tournament. It gets started at 11:40 EST and it will be shown on FSN.
    Colorado is currently in 5th place in the conference and Utah is in 11th. The Buffaloes stand at 19-11 overall including 11-7 in the Pac 12. The Utes maintain a record of 6-24 and are 3-15 in the conference.
    Colorado shouldn't break a sweat winning this game. The Buffaloes are the better team according to the RPI which ranks them at #82 and the Utes at #265.
    There are two statistical areas where Colorado has an advantage. The Buffaloes beat the Utes in rebounding, where they have the advantage 36 per game to 28 per game. Colorado is also ahead in scoring, 68 pts/game to 56 pts/game.
