If I'm not busy writing, you can generally find me on a tennis court or traveling the world wherever a sporting event takes me. For Ricky Dimon media enquiries, please email

With the regular season over, March Madness is right around the corner. It’s one of the best events in all of sports, and a godsend for bettors. The first weekend of the NCAA Tournament is especially fun to wager on, and as the tourney gets closer we’ll be bringing you everything you need to get ready. We’ll be taking a look at all of the teams one by one, and today we’re breaking down one of the top squads in the PAC 12, the Colorado Buffaloes.

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.
