The winners of the AAC get set to take on the Colorado Buffaloes, an at large from the Pac-12.
While the Huskies ran through the AAC, Colorado ran into a hot Arizona team and gave them all they could handle, but eventually fell in the end.
With about 3 weeks left in the regular season, the Buffaloes actually had a shot at the Pac-12 regular season title. They sat up there in the standings, but couldn’t string together the wins to jump up, leaving them a middle of the pack team in the conference.
Colorado did grab a win in the conference tourney as they routed the Washington State Cougars by 24 which was more than enough to solidify their spot here.
The Buffaloes key to success this season was their home court advantage. Colorado finished 16-1 at home and propelled themselves into this tourney with the quality wins they gained in Colorado.
Colorado averaged 76.0 points per game, but also was one of the worst conference wise in points against as they allowed 70.7 points against per game.
Look for F Josh Scott to be the difference maker if Colorado hopes to be victorious as he leads the team with 16.1 points per game, but really is their most clutch player.
The Huskies rattled off 3 straight wins in the AAC tourney, which included a title win over Memphis. However, the real game of the tourney came in a 4 overtime win over Cincinnati that involved the Huskies hitting a half court buzzer beating shot to send the game into overtime.
Uconn has prided themselves on the defensive side of the ball, which has really won them some games down the stretch. The Huskies sit 12th in the nation with just 63.1 points against. They allowed less than that in 3 of their last 4 games, with the 4 overtime game being the exception.
The Huskies also bring the experience to the table. They have 32 NCAA tourney appearances and have found themselves in 5 Final Fours.
The last time they stepped foot in the tourney was back in 2014 when they ran the table and defeated Kentucky in National Championship. This Uconn team also won the National Championship back in 2011.
