Big Night tonight at Haas Pavilion (the women's team seems to be having a lot of those lately). The No. 7 Bears host No. 20 Colorado in another pivotal Pac-12 showdown. Cal (15-2, 5-1) is tied with No. 6 Stanford atop the conference standings and needs a win over the Buffaloes to keep pace. Colorado is also 15-2 with its only two losses coming to Cal and Stanford. Just under three weeks ago in Boulder, the Bears squeaked out a 53-49 victory over the Buffs.
Tonight marks the sixth time in the past seven games the Bears have faced a ranked opponent, and their only loss during that time came against Stanford. Cal turned around and then beat Stanford in its next game.
Stay tuned all night here and on Twitter (@CalBearBlog) for updates throughout the night.
