The Colorado Buffaloes are looking to do in the Pac-12 Tournament what the Colorado St. Rams were unable to do in the Mountain West Tournament: reach the championship game. Just like the Rams, the Buffaloes enter halftime with a one-point lead, 28-27. The No. 2 California Golden Bears are out to be like San Diego and charge back in the second half.
The Buffaloes held an 11-point lead, 15-4, after the first 5:30 of the game, but California kept the pressure on for the rest of the half and took advantage of a weak Colorado bench so far. The Buffs' reserves have zero points, one assist, one rebound and three turnovers.
Carlon Brown and Andre Roberson continue to be the offensive force for the Buffs, each scoring eight points in the first half. Justin Cobbs and Allen Crabbe lead the Bears with nine and eight points, respectively. The Buffs took advantage of the Bears to the tune of six steals and 11 turnovers forced.
