Preview: Colorado Buffaloes

2012-13: 21-12 (10-8 Pac-12) Lost to Illinois 57-49, NCAA round of 64
In-conference offense: 0.99 points per possession (8th)
In-conference defense: 0.96 points per possession (1st)

In the context of the program's history, that's a remarkable accomplishment for the Buffaloes.
