Pac-12 Tournament Results: Colorado Defeats California, Advances To Title Game

In their first year as a member of the Pac-12, the No. 6 Colorado Buffaloes will play in the conference tournament championship game following Friday night's 70-59 victory over the No. 2 California Golden Bears. The bracket is now set for a showdown against the Arizona Wildcats on Saturday afternoon.

The Buffs were powered by the 17 points each scored by Andre Roberson and Carlon Brown. The former continued to show his outstanding rebounding ability by grabbing nine boards. Brown pulled down five rebounds while stealing the ball four times. Austin Dufault added 15 points and Nate Tomlinson 10. Two other players combined to add the remaining 11 points.

Allen Crabbe (18 points) and Justin Cobbs (15 points) tried to lead a comeback against the Buffs, but the team shot just 43 percent from the field (to Colorado's 50 percent).

Colorado is one win away from playing in the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2003.
