Colorado's Reaction To NCAA Tournament Snub (VIDEO)

The Buffaloes aren't going dancing this year.

Colorado basketball players were left sitting in silence as they watched the selection show and didn't hear their school get called.

"Shocking and disappointing that we didn't get in the tournament," coach Tad Boyle said after his Buffaloes were left out of the 2011 NCAA tournament.

"I feel bad for our five seniors," Boyle continued. "The fact that they'll never have an opportunity to play in this tournament again. We're going to look forward to playing in the NIT. We're still going to play basketball. That's what you want to be doing in March."

Colorado's Ben Mills said that he thought that their wins in the Big 12 Tournament and in conference play were enough to get selected.

The Buffaloes beat Kansas State in the conference tournament for the third time this season. The Wildcats earned a No. 5 seed in the big dance.
