Insta-Reaction: Cal Men's Basketball Bested by Arizona State, Loses Third-Straight Game

Despite their one-point advantage going into halftime, the California Golden Bears (7-11, 2-9 Pac-12) lost to the Arizona State Devils (5-8, 2-5 Pac-12), 68-72, Thursday night.

California finished the first half strong, despite being shooting only 35.1% compared to Arizona State's 42.9%. Junior forward Andre Kelly was responsible for California's lead, with back-to-back scores with 1:39 remaining in the game. He brought the home team's lead down to a single point with a fast-break dunk and put his side ahead with a layup just 43 seconds later.

Kelly finished the evening with a double-double: 16 points, 13 rebounds, one assist and one steal.

California star-scorer Matt Bradley also had a double-double. He put up a game-high 26 points, including three out of eight three-point attempts completed, 10 rebounds and one assist.

Despite the eye-popping stats, the Sun Devils pulled away in the second half, giving the Golden Bears only four minutes and 12 seconds of game-time with a lead.

With the loss, California's third-straight, the Golden Bears fall to last place in the Pac-12 Conference standings. They will face off against an Arizona Wildcats team, fresh off a 64-73 loss against the Stanford Cardinal.
