Cal Bears, NCAA

In the last game the Cal Bears against the Stanford Cardinal, the Cardinal doesn’t have depth that Cal does if you get past their starting five there’s a drop off in game ready talent and both teams have a lot of foul trouble. The Cardinal were scuffling with the Bear’s center Kameron Rooks and center Kingsly Okoroh between them they ended up with nine fouls that night. Cal big men were banging each other and racking up the fouls and when Stanford loses their big men that changes their team dramatically on the offensive prospective.

Utah coming: According to ESPN’s Joe Lunardi Cal is right behind Utah and the first team out of the tournament, so nothing would improve Cal’s tournament chances more than beating Utah on their home floor. This is a very crucial weekend for Cal they need to win both of these games with Utah and Colorado. The Buffaloes have had very good teams in the past couple of years. The Buffaloes tend to be long and they tend to be mobile and that will present some issue for Cal because in many ways they are a mirror issue of Cal.
