Colorado Buffaloes Could Be Arizona Wildcats’ Toughest Opponent In Pac-12

The Arizona Wildcats will be the favorites to win the Pac-12 in the 2013-14 college basketball season. However, the Colorado Buffaloes may be their toughest opponent in the conference.

Arizona will be stacked with talent. If it meets expectations, it should easily win the conference title and make a deep run in the 2014 NCAA Tournament. The Wildcats will enter the season as a top 10 team and will have national championship on their minds all season long.

With that said, Colorado should be getting a lot of buzz as well.

Sure, Andre Roberson left for the NBA, but the top two leading scorers will be back, along with other great players and a pretty good recruiting class will be joining the team.

Arizona has some very high expectations, but the same can be said about the Buffs. They have made the NCAA tournament two years in a row and a third consecutive appearance should happen.

Tad Boyle has done wonders with this basketball program and Colorado really is on the rise in college hoops. This team won 21 games last year and finished three games out of first place in the Pac-12 standings. The previous season saw it win the conference tournament.

Arizona and UCLA will always have a lot of hype because of each school’s history. Not to mention, the Bruins and Wildcats do land some of the best recruits.

However, Colorado is not too far behind now. This team has one more year of experience under its belt and it would not be a surprise if the Buffaloes won the Pac-12 in the 2013-14 season.
