Colorado sports features a series of college and professional big-time match-ups that can alter a season.

The Denver Nuggets remain in the 8th spot of the Western Conference, two games ahead of the Portland Trailblazers who currently sit in 9th. Nuggets are coming off back-to-back road wins last week and will face the Lakers, Clippers and Rockets this week.

They're in the post season and it's time for them to shine. The University of Denver Men's Ice Hockey team has advanced to the Frozen Faceoff after sweeping rival Colorado College last week. They will take on another major competitor in their NCHC Conference, the North Dakota Hawks.

In Boulder, the nationally ranked CU Women's Lacrosse team remains undefeated (7-0) heading into Wednesday's match-up against the 7-1 Temple Owls. Seven games in, the Buffs have six double-digit scorers and 112 goals.

Despite missing their shot to enter the NCAA Basketball Tournament, The Colorado State Rams and Colorado Buffs are both competing in the NIT Basketball Tournament as a No. 4 and No. 5 seed.

In Golden, the Colorado School of Mines will host West Texas A&M for a Sweet 16 match-up in the Division II Men's Basketball Championship.
