Cal Men's Basketball Insta-Reaction: Cal Drops to Stanford, 55-70

Despite scoring a tied game-high 24 points, junior Matt Bradley could not lead California to a win over their arch-rivals, the Stanford Cardinal.

The California Golden Bears (7-13, 2-11 Pac-12) lost their fifth game in a row, 55-70, against the Stanford Cardinal (11-7, 7-5 Pac-12). The Golden Bears had hoped to win their third-straight game against the Cardinal, but a double-double from Stanford star Oscar da Silva, the Pac-12 Conference's scoring leader, ended that dream. De Silva completed the evening with 24 points, 11 rebounds, four assists, two steals and one block.

California, which has typically kept it close in games at Haas Pavilion, shot cold. Cal shot for 36% compared to Stanford's 54%.

And while Bradley had an eye-popping five three-pointers, the Cardinal were more accurate: connecting one out of three shots from downtown compared to Cal's 27% from behind the arc.

The Golden Bears will look to Super Bowl Sunday to break their losing streak and avenge Thursday night's loss. California travels to the Peninsula to play against Stanford at 7 p.m. PT.
