BOULDER, Colo. - The third time was not the charm for the University of Colorado Buffs at the NCAA tournament.
The eighth-seeded Buffaloes (23-11) lost to the ninth-seeded Panthers (25-9) Thursday 77-48 in the second round in the South Region.
This was CU's third year in a row being selected to play in the tournament.
Last year, CU lost its first game in the tournament to Illinois.
The previous season, CU won its first NCAA game against UNLV (68-64) before being eliminated by Baylor (80-63).
