The University of California also has a women's basketball program. That team was also in action today at Haas, defeating St. Mary's, 74-69 to run their record to 7-1.

Great win. Santa Clara has some nice wins. They were missing a key piece, but Cal was missing 2.

Showed glimpses of what could be.

Most complete Cal basketball game I've seen in years.

Anyone know why Tyson wasn't ejected after picking up his second technical?

What a great game by the Bears. The energy, the ball movement, the athleticism of the players. This is basketball the way I like to see it played. Patient, and then deadly. Love hearing the energy in the stands too. Can't wait to see the team play live when they come up here to the PNW. Go Mad Dog! Go Bears!

Solid win. Several great performances for sure. Considering it was only his first appearance KK showed he can be a game changer.

Finding myself starting to put JT in the same conversation as JK and KJ. Though they all possess(ed) unique skill sets, when they were on the floor I can’t(couldn’t) take my eyes off them. Case in point. 2nd half Cal making a surge and JT feeling the crowd not stepping up after a bucket even though he is off the ball marking someone in the corner he gestured make some noise and we responded nicely.

I think JT only got one T. The first half forearm to the SC player’s face was a flagrant One which aren’t classified as technicals. I don’t know for sure

Bravo, BB Bears!

Let's hope this signals a turn around for BB, too.

They beat Furd and Oregon already so they're a quality team. I only caught the end but it looked like we were clicking offensively and defensively. That we suppressed their scoring (they seem get in the 80s when they win) gives me hope that our defense is already solidifying. I'm not sure how much to attribute to missing players.

Thanks BP!

Question for those more knowledgeable: how good is Santa Clara? Record wise looks good but I'm not sure who they have played?
