Gotta give credit to thewiz06 for calling this one in our staff predictions:
…Kansas vs. Colorado in part because this is a former Big 12 conference matchup in a 5 vs 12 seed matchup.
Still, this might be the most unexpected outcome on a day with a few upsets.
Even if there was a statistical projection that had Colorado falling to Kansas – and to my knowledge, there wasn’t – the fact that the Buffaloes couldn’t defend home court is definitely surprising. That said, Ed Bemiss’ odds didn’t exactly see Colorado as an overwhelming favorite to advance.
But even then… a 15-point loss? Guess folks were too hard on Kansas getting into the tournament.
