The non-conference schedule is over and the Pac 12 starts on Friday the 30th and Cal has it’s hands full to get off to a good start and good enough to be in the NCAA Tournament this year. The Bears will host the Arizona Wildcats on Friday for that first Pac 12 game and these two teams do match up in terms of size and Arizona is one of the bigger teams in the conference they have not been as good in terms of having a skilled guy whose a volume scorer or a high scorer this year they’ve had a couple tough loses.

They are ranked 18th nationally even though their not as good as normally that we’ve seen Arizona teams be they figure to give Cal all they could handle. From Arizona’s prospective coming to Berkeley it’s been kind of a house of horrors for the Wildcats recently last year they lost at Berkeley and two years ago it was that big upset when the Cats were ranked number one.
