Colorado plays the ‘pretty girl’

Buffaloes trendy pick over Illinois
Spencer Dinwiddie leads Colorado in scoring, providing the foundation for the team that’s a hot pick to beat Illinois today. “We’re the pretty girl right now,” he said. “Everybody wants to pick us.”
Brandon Paul and Illinois started 12-0, then went through a 2-7 slide before rallying to make the NCAA tournament. The mid-season slide brought out a lot of “doubters and haters,” coach John Groce said. “They stayed the course. I appreciate the way they fought.”
