West coast, best coast?

When it comes to the tournament, not so much. Of the seven Pac-12 teams to make the tourney, five were knocked out in the first round. Utah is the only team to have won so far, but top-seeded Oregon plays tonight. Can they make up for the rest and hang with the best?

John Gasaway ESPN Insider 

You shouldn't judge a conference by the one-game sample size offered by the NCAA tournament. Or at least you shouldn't do that ordinarily. But the Pac-12's 1-5 record -- and most crucially the fact that all five losses came to lower seeds -- does little to counter the sentiment that the league's beautiful RPI was built on savvy scheduling more than performance.

Purvis spurs UConn comeback over Colorado

Rodney Purvis, Daniel Hamilton and a stifling defense carried Connecticut back from an 11-point first-half deficit, giving the Huskies enough for a 74-67 win over Colorado.

Strong second half propels UConn to win

The No. 9-seeded Huskies outscored 8-seed Colorado 45-31 in the second half to win their first-round matchup 74-67 despite Buffaloes F Josh Scott's game-high 23 points. Box score

Ben Fawkes ESPN Staff Writer 

UConn (-3.5) and over bettors (total anywhere from 131 to 136) were sweating, but Huskies win and cover 74-67 thanks to late free throws.

John Gasaway ESPN Insider 

It's a win in the brackets and maybe UConn's March magic is back. But that was a very shaky last three minutes against the Colorado press. Loss by the Buffaloes means teams outscored in conference play are 0-2 so far (CU and Texas Tech).

Life from Colorado. Buffs were dead, but it's 66-63 after two Xavier Toton free throws with 60 seconds left. Hang on.

UConn pulling away here behind Daniel Hamilton and Rodney Purvis. Lead is 65-53 with 3:05 to play. Don't mess with the Huskies in March.
