Colorado (18-16) advances to the second round and will face either New Mexico or Utah Valley.
Da Silva was off on a 3-pointer with under a minute to play and Seton Hall secured the loose ball and raced the other way for a KC Ndefo dunk while being fouled with 32.1 seconds left. Ndefo added the free throw to give Seton Hall a 64-63 advantage for the ninth lead change of the game.
Colorado opted for a quick shot and Julian Hammond III was left wide open in the lane to take a 65-64 lead with 20.6 seconds left. After two timeouts, Femi Odukale was surrounded near the free-throw line and his last-second scoop shot was off the mark and Colorado secured the loose ball.
Luke O’Brien grabbed a career-best 14 rebounds to go with eight points for Colorado. Hammond scored 10 with five assists.
