A crazy night in Pac-12 hoops has left the Arizona Wildcats alone in first place without having to play a game.
Colorado upset Oregon 48-47 after Andre Roberson made a last-minute putback and Spencer Dinwiddie blocked a final Oregon shot by E.J. Singler in the final seconds. Oregon's loss knocked the Ducks into a second-place tie with UCLA and ASU at 7-3 while Arizona is 8-2.
Both UCLA and ASU had to hang on to keep pace.
ASU held on to beat Cal 66-62 after the Bears nearly came back from a 15-point deficit with eight minutes left.
Colorado's win, meanwhile, was a much-needed NCAA tournament resume booster for the Buffs, who will have a chance for another one next Thursday against Arizona in Boulder, Colo.
The Wildcats may need to maintain at least the one-game edge if they want the top seed in the Pac-12 Tournament, since they have lost to both UCLA and Oregon and could lose tiebreakers associated with those teams. Arizona will get another chance at UCLA on March 2 in Los Angeles but won't play the Ducks again in the regular season thanks to the Pac-12's unbalanced schedule.
Arizona has four home games and four road games left in the regular season. The Wildcats will host Cal on Sunday and then travel to play Colorado next Thursday and Utah on Sunday, Feb. 17.
