On the Cal Bears podcast with Michael and Morris:

The Cal Bears (3-5) Justice Sueing started off this season on fire but cooled off in recent week and then recovered on Saturday night against the San Diego State Aztecs (3-5) in a 89-83 win. Sueing led the Bears with 23 points Morris and Michael talk about Sueing’s turn around.

Sueing was a key factor in the Bears win over the Aztecs, Morris and Michael talk about once Sueing is lit up he stays fired up during a game. Speaking of fired up after the Bears were handed a drubbing by the USF Dons (8-1) in a 19 point loss last Wednesday on their own home floor the Bears came in fired up to get back in the win column.

Morris talks about Cal’s Grant Anticevich, Conor Vanover, and point guard Paris Austin and how these young players will be a huge contribution to the Bears offensive line up.

On the Cal Bears basketball podcast with Morris:

#1 Justice Sueing started out the season on fire, but cooled off in recent weeks; but on Saturday night against San Diego State (3-5), Sueing led Cal (3-5) with 23 points. What’s been the big turnaround for Sueing?

#2 Sueing was instrumental in leading the Bears to a 89-83 win over San Diego State. Is he one of those players who once gets on fire stays lit up for a whole game?

#3 After getting stomped by the USF Dons (8-1) last Wednesday by 19 points. it looked like the Bears rallied around each other and really made things happen on Saturday.

#4 Cal’s Grant Anticevich, Conor Vanover, and point guard Paris Austin are playing more efficiently. How important were they in this win on Saturday night?

#5 Cal Poly (3-5) is next up to play at Haas Pavilion and the Bears hope to keep it going this Sunday the 16th with a 3 PM tipoff. Morris Phillips will have complete Cal basketball action.
