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
