Makale Foreman's buzzer beater gives the Bears a 72-70 victory
I thought Joel Brown's defense was really critical to disrupting USF after their hot start, particularly in preventing Bouyea from completely taking over. I wonder if Hyder will be able to bring something approaching that same level of defensive play as Brown does, and if not how Fox balances between offense and defense at PG.
Glad to see a write up as there was nothing here for the game day and I saw on my sports feed that the Bears won on the last second shot. Who else here wishes so desperately that the game was at Haas and we got to see it?
I was disappointed with the Bears' last play. You only need one point to win, so why not shoot from the paint? You can draw a foul and tie or win with some free throws or take an easier shot than a deep three! Plus, you're at home and can expect referees to give you the benefit of the doubt on foul-calling and timing.
But boy, am I happy we won in the end.
USF is a pretty good team this year. Beat then #17 Virginia at their place and whomped on historically good Nevada by 25 at Nevada. So beating them shows some potential for the Bears.
Anyone know if Hyder is still planning on attending Cal next season? He could make Cal a lot better.
The future player I hope Cal gets is Aidan Mahaney, from Campolindo, maybe the best Norcal high school player in many years. I think he's good friends with Bowser and another high level local recruit who I believe has already signed with Cal for next season. Unfortunately, his mother attended Stanford, which should help Stanford land him. I think one of Cal's goals is to be respectable when Aiden, I believe, will enter college in two years. Getting Hyder would help. Being a plus .500 team would help even more.
