You kind of have to wonder what would have happened if the Cal Bears were healthy with all their players on the floor against the Arizona Wildcats there was so much foul trouble in that game on Saturday at McHale Center in Tucson. As my dear friend going on 50 plus years NCAA analyst Bill Walton said, “Terrible officiating terrible.” With Cal and Arizona these were the two best defensive teams in the conference and it looked like it there were an awful lot of free throws. There were some hard fouls there were some questionable fouls and I would tend to agree with Mr.Walton they should have just let him play.

If you idea of having a good time spending two and half hours listening to 60 different whistles and watching the game get chopped up in tiny little pieces then you must have had a ball watching that one. What this game came down to is Arizona has more talent they have a deeper roster when your Cal and your in the first half your looking at guys like Don Coleman and Steven Domingo to come out and pick up a scoring and rebounding slot vs. an Ivan Rabb that’s a pretty steep fall off.
