Colorado is squarely on the bubble as an NCAA Tournament team for March Madness 2024 and may miss the NCAA Tournament.

The Buffaloes probably need to close the season with some wins in the Pac-12 conference tournament if they want to end up on the right side of the cutting line.

Here are some of the basic ratings for Colorado, as of Feb. 27.

Colorado March Madness: Last Season

Colorado has played in the NIT – not the NCAA Tournament – for two straight seasons. Head coach Tad Boyle is hoping to change that this year, but the Pac-12 will likely struggle to place at-large teams in the bracket.
