The path toward a possible second consecutive appearance in the title game of The Basketball Tournament is coming together for Team Colorado.
The alums from CU’s men’s basketball program will open the $2 million winner-take-all competition as one of the tournament’s four No. 1 seeds, receiving the top spot in the West Region in the brackets released Tuesday. Team Colorado will play Kimchi Express at 3:15 p.m. MDT on July 15 at Desert Oasis High School in Las Vegas. The winner will play a second-round date at the same location on July 16.
Team Colorado suffered a heartbreaking defeat in the TBT championship game a year ago, letting a big lead and the $2 million payoff slip away. Team Colorado returns mostly the same group of players this year with former NBA player Chris Copeland and big man Josh Scott, an All-Pac-12 Conference performer with the Buffs just a season ago, added to the mix.
