This is the Grant and Jordan we want all year long. Jordan as a part of the whole, and Grant to not overthink it. Such a difference from the first few games of the year.

Another lazy pass from Joel, then an offensive foul. Weird spot for him.

I hate both Gene and Jean. They're both insufferable.

Well thats the Cal team I know. Build a 13 point lead from the shadows then blow it immediately.

I like this offensive strategy. Plan A is to run it through Kelly, plan B is to dribble drive and kick to the shooters. Plus, it helps that this may be Grant's 30 point game for the year.

19-9 Cal with the early lead. They look solid so far. The Beavs have a taunting T and are trying outnumbered transition plays. Weird that Cal is the more competent team on the court.

Wonder when this site will switch over and start doing some basketball post game threads and analysis? This was a fun win, and the guys played fairly smart and hard, as Monty pointed out. Lots of extra passes and set plays, which I love. Bottom line is that we were picked to finish last, like the Beavs last year, and we will not. No more than middling, but given the expectations, middling with some fun wins mainly at home, will be still satisfying.

Scratch that last place prediction. This is a Cal team that can get some splits during the season.

Nice win by the boys....Beavers are bad, but you hold a team to 61, make your FTs...

Way too careless with the ball, but a win's a win. Nice!

Hey Mark Fox, why do you have only 1 point guard on the roster?

I can root for this team of underdogs.

One simple way to do that is for the author, if he wants to, to post a comment that all posts subsequent to his are post game comments, though I think it should be obvious from most post game comments that they were made after the game was completed.

Kelly solid, Shepherd drained his jumpers - defense from Joel, Kuany, and Alajaki. Good start Bears! Utah on Sunday...

It was a solid Pac-12 win. Sloppy at times but shepherd and Company closed it out.

Highlight of the game was when Shepherd went to the line to shoot two and the four others were huddled with coach. Then for the second one the strolled to half court.

Cal looking good. Cal up 12 to 6. If they have good depth they could be goid. Think Kuany is a comer. Bow 19 to 9.
