Women’s basketball: Bears can clinch 2nd place

TIPOFF: Cal (21-7, 12-4 Pac-12) vs. Colorado (16-10, 5-10) at Haas Pavilion, Saturday, 2 p.m.

GAME THEME: The Bears have a 2 1/2-game lead over USC (9-6) in the race for second place and the No. 2 seed for the Pac-12 tournament. A Cal win or a USC loss will clinch the spot for the Bears . . . Two days after the Cal women beat Utah 60-46 — the same exact score the Cal men used to beat the Utes — the Bears try to complete a season sweep of Colorado. Layshia Clarendon scored 18 points in Cal’s 68-55 win at CU on Jan. 12.

NOTES: Two special promotions go with this game. It’s Cal’s Pink Game, and all fans wearing pink can purchase general admission tickets for $3. The game benefits the Kay Yow Cancer Fund, named for the late North Carolina State women’s coach. It’s also Cal’s Kids Day, with youth general admission tickets selling for $1

NEXT TIME: Stanford at Cal, Sunday, March 4, 6 p.m.
