California Vs. Colorado Final Score: Buffs Into Final With 70-59 Win

The Colorado Buffaloes have pulled off another great upset. They're into the Pac-12 Tournament final, where they will play their fourth game in four days on Saturday. The California Golden Bears kept it close early, but some fantastic defense and free-throw shooting helped the Buffs to pull away late and seal a 70-59 victory.

Just like they did against their quarterfinal opponent, Oregon, Colorado split home and away with California in the regular season. They weren't expected to beat either team at a neutral site, but have done just that in two straight games. In the final, they play the Arizona Wildcats, another team with whom they played to a home and away split in the regular season.

Four Buffaloes scored in double figures, with Carlon Brown and Andre Roberson both scoring 17 points. The game was never out of reach until late for California, but Colorado iced the game at the line and shot 15-18 from the charity stripe on the night. They were also excellent defensively and held Pac-12 Player of the Year Jorge Gutierrez to 10 points and three assists while forcing him into four turnovers.
