Colorado Buffaloes 1996-1997 Retro Shorts


Led by All-American sophmore Chauncey Billups, the Colorado Buffaloes entered the 1996-1997 season unranked before 11-5 in Big 12 play.  Billups averaged 19-5-5 and was named to the All Big 12 1st team.  Colorado earned the #9 seed in the East Region of the NCAA Tournament.  Colorado's first NCAA appearance in nearly 3 decades.

Waiting for them was #8 seed Indiana and their legendary coach Bob Knight.  The Buffs jumped out to a 15-3 lead and never looked back, defeating the Hoosiers 80-62.  Billups put on a show scoring 24 points in an offensive flurry. 

Colorado would lose in the next round of the tournament, falling 73-56 to #1 North Carolina and Dean Smith.
