March 12, 2010
LOS ANGELES (AP) -Jerome Randle scored 24 points and Theo Robertson had 15 of his 20 in the second half when California dominated UCLA on its way to an 85-72 victory Friday night in the Pac-10 tournament semifinals.
The top-seeded Golden Bears (23-9) advanced to Saturday's title game, where they'll play either No. 3 Washington or seventh-seeded Stanford, who met later at Staples Center.
Patrick Christopher added 16 points for the Bears, seeking their first league tournament title to go with their first outright regular-season championship in 50 years.
Michael Roll scored a career-high 27 points in his final game for fifth-seeded UCLA (14-18), which ended the season with its worst record since 2003-04, coach Ben Howland's first in Westwood. Jerime Anderson added 15.
Cal made 13-of-14 free throws over the final 5:13, with Randle hitting six of his attempts.
