Pac-12 Tournament 2012: Buffaloes Defeat Wildcats To Be Named Tournament Champions, 53-51

The Colorado Buffaloes, who knocked the California Golden Bears out of the Pac-12 Tournament, have gone on to defeat the Arizona Wildcats by a score of 53-51 in Los Angeles' Staples Center to be named tournament champions, earning an automatic spot in the NCAA tournament. The Buffaloes, who held the Wildcats' late-game surge in check, will make it into the NCAA tournament this year for the first time since 2003 and for the 10th time in school history.

The Buffaloes were led by Spencer Dinwiddle, who scored 14 in the championship game against the Wildcats. Carlon Brown helped by adding 13 points and Andre Roberson chipped in 10 points. The Wildcats were led by Kyle Fogg in the losing effort, scoring 14, and Solomon Hill chipped in 13 points while Jesse Perry helped by adding 11.



The game came down to the final seconds as the Wildcats were within two of the Buffaloes. After two missed free throws kept Arizona alive, the Wildcats had the ball with plenty of time to force overtime or to win, but were unable to get a shot off, handing the Buffaloes the win.

Selection Sunday is tomorrow but the Buffaloes players and fans won't be surprised when their names are called.

Pac-12 Tournament 2012: Bracket, Schedule And More

The 2012 Pac-12 Tournament was filled with upsets and drama and top seeds being overwhelmed and stunned. Following Friday's semifinals, the Championship Game has been set. One of two teams will claim the Pac-12 Championship and its accompanying NCAA Tournament berth. The Stanford Cardinal and the No. 2 seed California Golden Bears have been sent backing, so the Bay Area contingent of players and teams will be watching the title match from home.

Cal was overwhelmed in Fridays' semifinal nightcap by the No. 6 Colorado Buffaloes. They will be heading home and are unlikely to reach the 2012 NCAA Tournament. In fact, it is very likely that the only Pac-12 team to enter March Madness proper will be the eventual Pac-12 Tournament winner.

The Buffaloes will play on Saturday against the No. 4 Arizona Wildcats, who earlier on Friday had knocked off the surprisingly feisty No. 9 Oregon St. Beavers.

Championship: Saturday, March 10
3 p.m. PT - Championship Game (CBS) - No. 4 Arizona Wildcats vs. No. 6 Colorado Buffaloes

Pac-12 Tournament 2012 Bracket Reactions: Cal Fans React To Semifinal Loss

The No. 2 seed California Golden Bears were overwhelmed by the No. 6 seed Colorado Buffaloes in the 2012 Pac-12 Tournament semifinals on Friday night. They will be missing out on the championship game and a chance at the 2012 NCAA Tournament and understandably, Bay Area fans are feeling a bit maudlin about this development.

Kodiak over at Cal blog California Golden Blogs offers this short, but bittersweet take on Friday night's disappointing results:

Back up the bus. The Redemption Tour has hit a snag.

After agonizing about how the Cal offense would fare against their kryptonite, it was surprisingly the Cal defense which gave way in the end.

Once again, too many first half turnovers squandered an opportunity to seize control of the game. It's a sad end to Jorge and Harper's regular season.

The Buffaloes will meet the No. 4 seed Arizona Wildcats in Saturday's Pac-12 Tournament Final. It is a safe bet that far fewer Bay Area fans will be watching the game than initially expected.

Pac-12 Tournament 2012: Cal Basketball Falls To Colorado 70-59

The California Golden Bears are going to be sweating out Selection Sunday.

Cal struggled in their second straight matchup against the Colorado Buffaloes, and just could not get over the hump. After taking a narrow lead on a second half comeback, the Bears suddenly could not the ball in the basket, and found themselves falling behind by double digits, which was too big a hole for them to climb out of. Carlon Brown had a career night with 17 points on 8-15 shooting, Andre Roberson needed only six shots to put in 17 points and nine rebounds, then Austin Dufault added 15 points.

The Bears again struggled to hold onto the basketball, managing 17 turnovers to 13 assists. Allen Crabbe had 18 points and Justin Cobbs put in 15 points, while Jorge Gutierrez added 10 points.

Cal Vs. Colorado Halftime Score: Golden Bears Trail Buffaloes 28-27 In Pac-12 Tournament

For the second straight game, the California Golden Bears got off to a slow start, falling behind early to the Colorado Buffaloes 15-4. Colorado nailed almost all their early shots and looked like they might be able to pile it on.

Cal's defense settled in the rest of the way, holding Colorado to only 13 points the rest of the way, and the Bears only trail the Buffaloes by one at halftime.

Cal struggled with turnovers for the second straight game, giving the ball to Colorado over ten times which led to double digit Colorado points. Justin Cobbs leads the way for the Bears with nine points, Allen Crabbe has eight points in support for Cal. Carlon Brown and Andre Roberson have eight points each to lead Colorado and Nate Tomlinson added six points in support.

Pac-12 Tournament 2012 Semifinals, California Vs. Colorado: Game Time, TV Schedule And More

After the California Golden Bears (24-8, 13-5 Pac-12) fought back to topple their arch rival Stanford Cardinal on Thursday afternoon, they now turn their attention to the Colorado Buffaloes (21-11, 11-7 Pac-12) in the semifinals of the 2012 Pacific Life Pac-12 Tournament Friday at Staples Center.

The Buffaloes narrowly escaped the grasp of the Oregon Ducks on Thursday as well, advancing with the 63-62 victory, and now face a hungry Bears team out for vengeance after Stanford robbed them of the regular season title last Sunday with a win at Maples Pavilion, they want that Pac-12 title.

Both these teams split their two contests at home this season, with Colorado earning the latest victory 70-57 towards the end of February. Jorge Gutierrez has been amazing thus far for Cal, coming off a 22 point performance last night along with seven boards and six assists.

Pac-12 Tournament 2012: Cal Advances With 77-71 Victory Over Stanford

With Cal on the verge of elimination from the Pac-12 tournament and perhaps the NCAA bubble popping, Jorge Gutierrez showed why he was the Pac-12 player of the year and summoned a great second half performance to put the Golden Bears in good shape for an at-large NCAA bid.

After only managing 23 first half points, Cal exploded for 54 points in the second. Gutierrez was the engine, scoring 20 of his 22 points in the second half while also dishing seven assists and grabbing six rebounds. Harper Kamp added 17 points and seven rebounds, Justin Cobbs put in 15 points, six rebounds and four assists, and Allen Crabbe had 11 points and eight rebounds.

Andrew Zimmerman had a career night for Stanford with 22 points and Chasson Randle added 19 points, but no other Cardinal players hit double digits as Stanford shot only 37% from the field compared to 52% from Cal.

Cal moves onto face the winner of Oregon and Colorado in the semifinals of the Pac-12 tournament on Friday night.

California Vs. Stanford Halftime Score: Cardinal Lead 30-23 Off Of Golden Bears Turnovers

The Stanford Cardinal could be on the verge of totally ruining the season of the California Golden Bears. First they eliminated them from the regular season Pac-12 title race, now they could end their Pac-12 tournament championship and NCAA tournament hopes altogether. Andrew Zimmerman leads Stanford with nine points, Aaron Bright chipped in six, Chasson Randle has five points and Josh Owens put in four to have Stanford up seven.

Cal's biggest issue is their turnovers, as they've lost the basketball 14 times, leading to 14 Cardinal points. Jorge Gutierrez and Allen Crabbe have combined to go 2 for 9 from the field. Harper Kamp (8 points) and Justin Cobbs (6 points) are the only Bears with multiple baskets.

Bracketology 2012: Win Over Stanford In Pac 12 Tournament Could Punch The Cal's At Large NCAA Tournament Ticket

Cal and Stanford kick off the first game of the late session at the Pac 12 tournament and the game is a big one for both teams. For Stanford they need the win to keep any postseason hopes alive. For Cal, a win likely cements the Bears as the one sure thing in the Pac-12.

After spending most of the year on top of the Pac-12 conference, Cal stumbled late and let the championship slip away to the Washington Huskies. Despite all that Cal headed into the postseason as the one team that had the easiest path off the NCAA tournament bubble. All season long Cal has been viewed the team most likely to earn an at-large bid out of the Pac-12 conference and with Washington's loss to Oregon State that is probably the case more than ever.

With a win over Stanford tonight the Bears would move to 24-9 overall, and they would appear to have padded the resume enough to lock things up. Then the only other order of business this weekend would be winning the Pac-12 tournament, but it wouldn't be a pressure packed situation.

Cal split the season series with the Cardinal with both teams winning their respective home games.

2012 Pac-12 Tournament, California Vs. Stanford: Game Time, TV Schedule And More

The age-old Bay Area rivalry returns to the 2012 Pacific Life Pac-12 Tournament as the No. 2 seeded California Golden Bears (23-8, 13-5 Pac-12) take on the No. 7 Stanford Cardinal in a quarterfinals matchup at Staples Center in Los Angeles on Thursday evening.

After the Cardinal kept Cal from clinching their first ever Pac-12 regular season title this past Sunday, the Golden Bears are out for some redemption against their arch-nemesis. Stanford will certainly come in brimming with confidence after dismantling Arizona State Wednesday night by the score of 85-65 behind Chasson Randle's career-high 30 points.

Cal will be rested and ready though, and has made it to the championship game here twice (2006, 2010). They've had nine victories in the tournament since moving to Staples in 2002, and are out to make it nine this evening. This will be the first conference tournament meeting between these two since way back on March 9, 1990, when the Cardinal handled the Golden Bears 77-61 in Tempe, AZ.

Pac-12 Tournament Bracket, Quarterfinals 2012: Stanford Beats Arizona St., California Is Next

Stanford's dream of an NCAA tournament bid can still become a reality after the Cardinal blew out the Arizona State Sun Devils 85-65 in Wednesday's first round of the Pac-12 tournament. Chasson Randle scored a career-high of 30 points for the Cardinal, with 27 of those points coming in the first half — a Pac-12 tournament record.

The Cardinal will meet California in a quarterfinal game on Thursday at 6 p.m.. These two teams last met on Sunday with Stanford pulling off a 75-70 victory over the Golden Bears. The two teams split the regular season series 1-1.

In other first round action, Oregon State advanced to the quarterfinals after a 69-64 victory over the Washington State Cougars. Oregon State's 24-8 first half run combined with solid free-throw shooting down the stretch helped the Beavers come out on top. The No. 1 seeded Washington Huskies are the Beavers' next opponent; their game will tip-off at 12 p.m.

The hometown UCLA Bruins beat arch-rivals USC 55-40 despite forward Josh Smith sitting out the entire first half. In the final first round game, the Colorado Buffaloes took care of the Utah Utes 53-41. The Buffaloes were led by Andre Robinson who tallied 20 points and 11 rebounds.

Pac-12 Tournament Bracket And TV Schedule: Cal Gets Rematch With Stanford In Quarterfinals

The most crucial matchup for Bay Area college basketball fans will be taking place this evening at 6 PM PT when the California Golden Bears get their rematch with the hated Stanford Cardinal. Cal was very close to winning a Pac-12 championship, but they came out playing frantically against Stanford on Sunday and came up short in that crucial contest.

Cal now moves from trying to win the Pac-12 to entering must-win territory. The Bears are not certain of their tournament status right now, and a third straight loss would cause all sorts of problems. Cal will have to try and contain a Stanford squad that played pretty solid basketball to overwhelm the Bears this past Sunday, and you can expect a similar performance needed to win on Thursday.

Cal or Stanford will face the Colorado or Oregon winner.

Stanford Vs. Arizona State, Final Score: Cardinal Advance 85-65 Behind Chasson Randle's Career-High 30

The Pac-12 Tournament got underway earlier Wednesday at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, and the Stanford Cardinal and Arizona State Sun Devils locked horns to see who moves on to the next round. And behind a record-setting performance from Stanford's Chasson Randle, the Cardinal easily eliminated the Sun Devils by the score of 85-65.

The Cardinal (21-10, 10-8 Pac-12) were in control from the very tip, holding a double digit lead for the majority of the contest. Randle was simply unconscious tonight, setting a new Pac-12 record with 27 points in the first half, breaking Klay Thompson's old mark of 25 set last year. Randle cooled off in the second half, finishing the game with 30 points on 7-11 shooting including 6-8 from downtown. Aaron Bright had 11 and five assists, while Jarret Mann added 10. Josh Owens was a non-factor, scoring only two points on 1-6 shooting.

As for the Sun Devils (10-21, 6-12 Pac-12), they came out flat and never could get fully into gear, ultimately to their demise. They were led by Chanse Creekmur's 13 off the bench, while Jordan Bachynski had 11 and four rebounds.

The Cardinal now move on to face their arch-rival California on Thursday in the next round of the Pac-12 tournament, with tip-off set for 6 p.m.

Stanford Vs. Arizona State, Halftime Score: Chasson Randle's 27 Paces Cardinal's 50-30 Halftime Lead

Both the Stanford Cardinal and Arizona State Sun Devils came into the Pac-12 tournament off of big wins against each of their respective rivals, looking to keep the good times rolling tonight at the Staples Center in Los Angels. But the Sun Devils simply came out sluggish and never recovered as the Cardinal lead big after the first half by the score of

Chasson Randle had an amazing first half, dropping 27 first half points to set new Pac-12 tournament record for points in a half, eclipsing WSU's Klay Thompson's mark of 25 last year. Randle was simply lights out, shooting 6-8 from the floor including 5-6 from downtown, as well as three steals. Aaron Bright had nine, while Dwight Powell five. Obviously it was all Randle for the Cardinal.

ASU finished on a 9-3 run to cut the lead to 20, but are seriously struggling thus far. Jordan Bachynski leads the way with eight points and while Jonathan Gilling and Chanse Creekmur had six. They've also committed 10 turnovers and had only nine rebounds in the entire half.

The Sun Devils are going to have to step it up big time if they want to overcome this big hole they've dug for themselves.
