This Week In Pac-12 Basketball - Colorado Looks To Take Down Stanford, California

Welcome to our weekly look at Pac-12 basketball. We take a quick look at what happened in the past week and breakdown the best games in the week to come.

Top 3 upcoming games: Well here we are, the second-to-last week of the regular season. The conference race has narrowed to Cal, Washington and Colorado in the front of the pack, with Oregon and Arizona holding onto thin hopes. The Buffaloes hope to finish their first year in the Pac-12 undefeated at home, a feat that would be incredibly impressive and would most likely lock up a coach of the year win for Tad Boyle.

UCLA Bruins at Arizona Wildcats, Saturday, 12:00 p.m., CBS: Believe it or not both of these teams are still mathematically alive for a Pac-12 regular season title. Yes, the Bruins could still win it. In reality, neither team will win the regular season, but both are still in play for a coveted first-round bye in the Pac-12 tournament.
Washington Huskies at Washington State Cougars, Saturday, 6:00 p.m., Root Sports: A Cougar upset in Pullman could be huge for the Buffs title chances. Provided Colorado is able to beat Stanford on Thursday, they could head into Sunday's game with Cal in second place.
California Golden Bears at Colorado Buffaloes, Sunday, 2:00 p.m., Root Sports: As I mentioned above, this game could end up being No. 1 vs. No. 2 in the Pac-12. Either way it's a must win for this Buffaloes team, not only for their conference title hopes, but for conference tournament seeding and any possible NCAA tournament chances.
