The Colorado Buffaloes are dancing once again.

Sunday, the Buffs earned the 5th seed in the East Region and will open against 12th-seeded Georgetown on Saturday, March 20 in Indianapolis. It's the highest seed for the Buffs since the NCAA stared seeding the whole field in 1979.

If CU wins that game, the Buffs would face the winner of the Florida St.-UNC Greensboro game on Monday, March 22.

The Buffs make the tournament with a record of 22-8. They fell to Oregon St., 70-68, in the Pac-12 Conference championship game on Saturday night in Las Vegas.
