One of the biggest questions lingering over the Pac-12 Tournament was whether or not defensive player of the year Andre Roberson would be available to Colorado.
The school announced Tuesday that Roberson has been cleared and will start Wednesday when the fifth-seeded Buffs face 12th-seeded Oregon State at 2:30 p.m. here in Las Vegas. Roberson missed Colorado’s last two games with a “viral illness” that the Boulder Daily Camera reported was Mono.
“We’ll start him, absolutely,” Colorado coach Tad Boyle said. “We’ll watch him obviously and ask him how he’s feeling and watch his wind. He’s probably not in tip-top shape. But it hasn’t been too long.”
