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.

At the beginning of the season, the Buffs and their fans expected to get here. With the exception of forward Andre Roberson, who skipped his senior season to enter the 2013 NBA Draft, the Buffs returned just about everybody from last year's Tournament team.
