On the Cal Bears podcast with Morris:
#1 The Utah Utes head coach Larry Krystkowiak saw his offense get it in gear against the Cal Bears instantly on offense, but the defense took awhile to get it in gear, but once they did, the Bears were pretty much done.
#2 The home floor didn’t help for Cal. They lost 82-64. They’ve struggled at home and have not won game this season.
#3 Krystkowiak said in the postgame presser that the first half was a shootout and that the offense was expending with a lot more energy. Knowing the struggles of the Bears and with the Utes climbing on offense did the Bears even have a chance to shut the Utes down in that first half.
#4 The Utes helped their own cause in the Pac-12 standings with their fourth straight win and now in a second place tie with USC.
#5 Cal’s attendance is shrinking with each loss and the fans and alum can’t give away a ticket as Cal drops to a 5-15 record. Cal’s next home game this Sun Feb 3 against the Stanford Cardinal.
