BOULDER, Colo. — The University of Colorado men’s basketball team ended the regular season with a 54-46 win over California on Saturday.

Senior Day in Boulder was special for Xavier Johnson (19 points) and Derrick White (17 points) as Colorado (18-13, 8-10 Pac-12) split the season series with Cal.

Losers of the their first seven conference games, Colorado closed with a 8-3 record to finish seventh in the Pac-12.

Now the attention turns to the Pac-12 tournament in Las Vegas starting Wednesday.

The road isn’t easy for the Buffs. It will need to win four games in four days, like it did in 2012, to reach the NCAA Tournament. The Buffaloes open against Washington State on Wednesday.
