Recap: California vs. Colorado

Los Angeles, CA (Sports Network) - Andre Roberson and Carlon Brown each scored 17 points as the sixth-seeded Colorado Buffaloes recorded their second upset in as many days by downing the second-seeded California Golden Bears 70-59 in the semifinals of the Pac-12 Tournament at the Staples Center.

Austin Dufault added 15 points and Nate Tomlinson scored 10 points, six of which came in the first few minutes of the game, for Colorado (22-11) which will have to pull one more upset to make it to the NCAA Tournament, as the Buffaloes will face fourth-seed Arizona in the title game.

Allen Crabbe topped the California (24-9) scoring list with 18 points while Justin Cobbs added 15 and Jorge Gutierrez chipped in 10. The Golden Bears will now have to wait to see if their resume was strong enough to warrant an at-large bid to the NCAA Tournament.

Colorado came out of the gates firing and ripped off a 12-2 run, capped by back-to-back three pointers from Tomlinson, to open the game. California clawed their way back and trailed only 28-27 going into the locker room by shooting 47.8 percent in the first twenty minutes.

In the second half Colorado erupted again and shot at a 59.1 percent clip while turning in a 15-for-18 performance from the free throw line to stretch it's lead into double digits and push past the Golden Bears.

California had 17 turnovers while Colorado coughed it up only nine times. The Golden Bears lost despite a 31-25 edge on the boards.
