The Colorado Buffaloes picked up a big win on Sunday over the California Golden Bears, 70-57, but all that did was shave half of a game off of the Washington Huskies' Pac-12 lead. The Buffaloes have two games left, both on the road. First up will be the Oregon Ducks, who are currently tied for fourth place at 11-5. A win would give the Buffs the tiebreaker over the Ducks should both finish with the same conference record since Colorado took the first meeting of the year, 72-71.
Should Colorado take that No. 4 seed, a first-round bye will be waiting for them at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, CA.
The Buffs place the Ducks on March 1 and then finish the season against the Oregon St. Beavers on March 3.
