Colorado Basketball: March Madness Team Profile and Season Recap

What I love about this Colorado team is their experience, something you can’t put a price on in March. Seven of their top eight scorers are upperclassmen, and five of those guys are seniors. This team has been together for a while, and they aren’t going to be fazed by the stage or the bright lights. Wright is one of the best floor general point guards in the country, and I think they’ve got a good matchup in the first-round against an overhyped Georgetown team. A date with Florida State would likely await in the Round of 32, and that’ll be a tough one.
