ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (CBS4) – Fans of the CU Buffs willing to make a road trip this week have a great opportunity to see the basketball squad in their most high profile game in years.
The last time the men’s team was in the NCAA Tournament was in 2003, and they have only been in the Big Dance three times since 1970.
