In another game that shows just how crazy the Pac-12 has been this season, the Colorado Buffaloes executed their defensive game plan to near perfection in a comfortable 70-57 lead over Cal. This comes just three days after the Buffs were completely dominated by Stanford on their home court. With the win, Colorado moves into sole possession of third place in the Pac-12 and trails Cal by just one game for second place.
The Buffs used a balanced attack to earn the win, with three guys scoring in double-figures. Austin Dufault and and Spencer Dinwiddie both scored 15 points, while Nate Tomlinson added 11 points. Andre Roberson completely controlled the paint, scoring eight points, grabbing 15 boards and blocking three shots in the win.
The Cal backcourt kept the Golden Bears in the game, with Allen Crabbe netting a team-high 16 points. Justin Cobbs started slowly, but finished with 15 points and six assists. However, Jorge Gutierrez was held scoreless in the loss, although he made an impact on the glass with a team-high nine rebounds.
