BOULDER -

 A strong showing in its first Atlantic Coast Conference tournament helped Pittsburgh earn a high seed in the NCAA tournament.
    
The Panthers (25-9) received the No. 9 seed in the South Region and will open tournament play against No. 8 seed Colorado (23-11) on Thursday in Orlando.
    
The winner will most likely face top overall seed Florida in the third round.
    
Pitt - which had no bad losses on its resume - boosted its tournament credentials by knocking off 14th-ranked North Carolina in the ACC quarterfinals and lost by three to eventual champion Virginia in the semifinals.
    
Colorado, which lost to Arizona in the Pac-12 semifinals, is headed to the NCAA tournament for the third straight year - the first time the Buffaloes have done that.
