The Cougars qualified to play in the NCAA Tournament as the number 3 seed in the Southeast bracket.  Tonight they played the Wofford Terriers in Denver.  The game was close most of the way, but the Cougars eventually pulled away mid-way through the second half and held on for a 74-66 victoryJimmer Fredette led the way with 32 points and 8 assists, with strong support from Charles Abouo, Noah Hartsock, and Logan Magnusson, each with 10 points.  The Cougars play again on Saturday, March 19, when they will face the Gonzaga Bulldogs.
