Big 12 Tournament Recap: KU Wins, Buffs Leave Conference On Losing Note

The Colorado Buffaloes played their last Big 12 basketball game, losing to the Kansas Jayhawks 90-83 in the semi-finals of the Big 12 Tournament.

KU was led by Marcus Morris and Markieff Morris, as the twins combined for 40 points and 21 rebounds. Guards Tyshawn Taylor and Tyrel Reed added 15 points a piece in the win.

CU was down by as many as 18 early in the second half but fought back behind 23 points from sophomore Alec Burks to narrow the gap to six with 30 seconds remaining. But CU didn't have enough time left in the game, and KU advances on to the championship game.

CU almost solidified their NCAA Tournament chances with wins in the first and second rounds of the conference tournament. The Buffs are now 21-13 on the season.

Kansas has done nothing to not think they'll be a No. 1 seed when the brackets are announced tomorrow. At 31-2, the Jayhawks won the Big 12 regular season and are now in the championship of the conference tournament.

KU will play the winner of tonight's Texas-Texas A&M game on Saturday evening.
