The favorites didn't pull through in the Pac-12 Conference Tournament, leaving the league looking like it might end up with just one NCAA Tournament team. But the Colorado Buffaloes, who won the tournament with a 53-51 victory over Arizona in the final on Saturday, certainly earned their place in March.
Spencer Dinwiddie tied for the game's scoring lead with 14 points for Colorado, Carlon Brown added 13, and Andre Roberson had 10 points and 11 rebounds while figuring into the Buffs' domination of the boards. CU outrebounded Arizona 35-23.
The Buffaloes become the only Pac-12 team assured of a spot in the NCAA Tournament. Regular season champions Washington and California will have to sweat it out on Selection Sunday after early exits in the Pac-12 Tournament.
