Cal Bears podcast with Michael Duca:

#1 The Bears who are at the bottom of NCAA basketball team in offense didn’t look like a team that’s struggling as they got a road win in Pullman defeating Washington State 66-57.

#2 Paris Austin, Andre Kelly and Matt Bradley combined for 46 points for Cal that contribution helped accelerate the offense and Austin, Kelly and Bradley had some great opportunities to take some great shots.

#3 The win marks the first time they’ve won on the road this season what do the Bears need to do to win games on the road?

#4 Cal head coach Mark Fox said, “For this team, no one gave them a chance to have much success so any time that they have some I want them to enjoy it and understand how they found that success so they can build on it,”

#5 Fox said this was a win that he hopes will create some momentum going into Seattle this Saturday at Washington

On the Cal Bears podcast with Miguel:

#1 Just overwhelming as the Cal Bears were outplayed by the St. Mary’s Gaels on Saturday night at Haas Pavilion.

#2 The Bears came into Haas undefeated at home this season, but couldn’t stop the Gales offensive evening, losing by 12 points for their first home loss.

#3 Two of the Gales forces that were just unstoppable were Jordan Ford’s 32 points and Malik Fitts’ 28 points, who led St Mary’s in scoring.

#4 Cal head coach Mark Fox said that St. Mary’s offense was very good and trying to shut them down proved difficult.
