The Buffaloes got here up quick regardless of the very best efforts of junior guard KJ Simpson, who had 20 factors, 5 rebounds and 7 assists. He was the hero within the first spherical in opposition to Florida however could not replicate that magic when Colorado wanted a bucket within the waning moments Sunday.

Carter Elliott @CarterElliott__

KJ Simpson what within the Johnell Davis was that?

David Blattman @davidblattman

I’ve by no means seen a participant have much less urgency with 7 seconds left and down 4 than KJ Simpson.

A date with No. 11 North Carolina State awaits Marquette within the subsequent spherical. The Wolfpack ended Oakland’s Cinderella bid in extra time on Saturday after having ousted sixth-seeded Texas Tech to open the match.

By way of the draw, Marquette can have anticipated to get a barely tougher street after getting positioned within the backside half with No. 3 Kentucky. Particularly after Sunday’s scare, Shaka Good’s squad will not be trying previous NC State.

The motion ideas off Friday at American Airways Heart in Dallas.
