The journey did not go as planned for the Colorado men's basketball team this season.

Nevertheless, the Buffaloes arrived at their target destination.

On Sunday, CU (23-11) was selected as one of the 68 teams to participate in the NCAA Tournament.

The Buffaloes will be the No. 8 seed in the South regional. They will square off against Pitt(25-9) in the second round on Thursday in Orlando, Fla.

For the first time in program history, the Buffs have earned an NCAA Tournament spot in three consecutive seasons — all under the direction of fourth-year head coach Tad Boyle.

Overall, this will be CU's 13th trip to the Tournament, just the fifth since 1969.
