Without scoring outside their lead forward, the Bears fall to #5 UCLA
Here's the be all and end all of our struggles against UCLA. We have scored 40 points, 56 points, 57 points, and now 52 points the last 4 times we played them. That's 51.3 PPG. Embarrassing. Kudos to Andre Kelly for fighting but everyone else needs a look in the mirror.
Bruin fan here, I thought Cal looked much improved (and far better than they looked against SC, where the Bears couldn't do a thing inside) and did a great job of keeping UCLA off of the offensive boards (this is something UCLA has been fantastic at this year). But...just under-talented. I feel like if you hand Fox that Cuonzo Martin team with Jaylen Brown et al they'd be a second weekend team, but he really needs to upgrade the level of player in the program for Cal to really be a player.
Nick Kranz, what was the final score, please?
"Two games, two losses that were close enough that you walk away without your optimism crushed, but decisive enough that you can’t really pretend that Cal had a good chance to win either."
Couldn't dis agree more - USC, they played great deserbed to win, UCLA played poor, we played worse - if we played them like we played USC, we win going away.
not getting embarrassed...victory!
Oh well. I thought we had a chance but the poor shooting in the 2nd half doomed us.
