On the Cal Bears podcast with Morris:

#1 UCLA have been a force since new head coach Murray Bartow has taken over. What are some of the differences?

#2 How frustrating was it for cal head coach Wyking Jones to re-plan things against UCLA after the Bruins made the coaching change?

#3 UCLA dominated last Saturday in a 98-83 win at Pauley Pavilion with 53% shooting from the floor and posting a season-high in points.

#4 What was the reason coach Jones decided to bench the starters during Saturday’s game?

#5 Cal hosts ASU Wednesday night at Haas Pavilion. Can the Bears overcome UCLA and have a chance to defeat the Sun Devils?
