Listen to Jamie Dixon's interview prior to Pitt leaving for Orlando

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) 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.
