Looking forward to watching this year's team for a change. Also finally got a hack to watch Pac-12 Network. Better late than never.

It was a watchable game for the first time in 5 years.

A solid, workmanlike effort. They battled, executed when they had to, showed some toughness, and leaned on the SR leaders down the stretch.

A really nice win.

My Pac 12 network subscription wasn't working but I'll just assume this was a cakewalk and routine win that didn't involve coming from behind.

Glad to start the Madsen era with a W.

Askew made a bucket. Big shot, Devin...gotta give it. Shoulda been an and-1.

Come on Cone...make your FTs.

Horrible missed FT...come on Celestine.

Hoping that if Cal can get a fully healthy team this year, plus Tyson being eligible, means that we don't see too much of Askew. Get your degree and leave

Really hoping Cone doesn't cost them this game...but this is a really rough performance.

wanted to see more of Okafor after the half, and hoping to see some scoring from Aimaq. we should be using our size

As a Cal fan, I don't think it's fair when other teams make a 3 pointer RIGHT AFTER we make one. It's just rude and I don't appreciate it. Let us have that one little moment of joy!

Haven't been able to watch the game - I'm hoping that the reason it's close is mostly due to unreal 3 point shooting percentage. Madsen did say that he feels Minnesota is a pretty good team but... this?

Slow start, ya maybe...but this team is missing some important pieces tonight.

Cone is pressing. Just get out with the W.

Alright...35-34 at half. St. Thomas hitting practically all of their 3's to keep it close. Bears need to defend the 3 better.

Newell hurt...may not play in the 2H with a knee. Game 1 we have a depth issue.

Cal's Strength and Conditioning program is really poor...THAT's been an issue for 50 years.

whats up with the names on the jerseys being so small? someone pick the wrong font?

Boom! And we're on the board.

This team is nowhere near full strength.

Let's get a W.

Let's see energy.

Let's see Fardaws and Cone make an impact.

Let's see Askew and Celestine shake off some rust.

Let's see Grant Newell and ND show signs of taking the next step...
