Been following Cal hoops for 40 years and I don’t recall a Bears team giving up as many uncontested 3’s as this one. Something is just off…either with execution or scheme. Sure, teams are definitely making the extra pass against the kids, but why we’ve been unable to adjust is a puzzler.

The Holland 3 was just as big a dagger. Off a made Cone FT to extend to 4, in fewer than 7-seconds UW is able to get the ball up court, make 2 passes for as wide-open of a 3 as you can get.

That just can’t happen. Still shaking my head over where the breakdowns come from.

Am just starting to what the men's team. A few beginning comments --

1. I thought Cal played well at the end of the game and so much better than at the start of the season.

2. Cal seems to have a lot of injuries. Who are they and what rank in effectiveness, with them being included, would they rank if they started and were not injured.

3. Seems like a decent crowd. Lots of people sitting behind the basket. What do you think was the approximat crowed size?

4. I am going to make some suggestions as to how Cal might be able to reconstitute the Pac whatever, either this coming season or the following one. I have brought them p toe Knowlton, without any decent response. in the next few days I am going to make my suggestions. Brought them up to Knowlton without a responsed but I have decided he will not do anything to try to reconsider a thing. By the way, I think I read that Knowlton may now be on some sort of probation for a month or two. Would like to see if that is true or not and whaat, if anything he is on probation for. In any event, anything i send to him I will be sending to Christ, if I get her email address. Anyone know wht that is.

Cal fans are being screwed by being in the ACC conference and I don't see anyone, including Knowlton, trying to change that. I will try.

That sucked but I really thought that we were going to win. Back to the drawing board but we are definitely headed in the right direction.

The defense is very impressive, offense too. Nice to have a team again.

This team is good. Just missed a couple free throws at the end.

Crushing. But still, when I think of how boring games were last year...

For a brief shining moment on ESPN Gametracker we had an 83 percent chance to win with less than a minute.

Rebounding and FT shooting were the deciders tonight

Coach Madsen and staff need to work on the 3PT defense next year.
