Your five-man Dream Team, including yourself in the lineup: Steve Nash, Kobe Bryant, Michael Jordan, myself and Tim Duncan. We could do some damage.
Besides Cal, the Pac-10 school with the best basketball fans: I’ll go with Washington State. They show up early and don’t let up the whole game.
The worst: The Washington State fans are also the nastiest. They’ll pick up any dirt on you they can and they’ll say it out loud.
If you could be an Olympic athlete, other than basketball, your sport/event: Soccer
The sport you refuse to watch: There’s not many. As much as I love to play baseball, I can’t watch it much.
The actor who plays you in the movie version of your life: Jerome (Randle) always tells me I look like Justin Timberlake. I can’t handle that. I’ll take George Clooney.
Least favorite kind of music: I’d have to go with pop music — Britney Spears-type stuff.
Best advice you ever got: Be humble and be hungry.
Favorite meal your mother cooks: Spaghetti — no doubt about it.
Food you will not eat: I’ve never tried anything that I haven’t liked and I’ve never seen anything that I haven’t tried. Maybe like cockroaches. I’ll stay away from insects.
Three people in history you’d like to have dinner with: John Wooden, Gandhi and William James — he’s my favorite author.
The smartest guy on the Cal team: Brandon Smith. He seems like a smart kid.
The funniest: D.J Seeley. He’s quiet and he’s not funny to a lot of people but he makes me laugh.
The best athlete: PC.
After the jump Ted Miller looks at Cal's recruiting needs, a WR visits Cal this weekend, men's bball routs the Ducks, and women's bball contains the potent Oregon offense in a solid road win.
- No Bears made the cut for Ted Miller's all-decade Pac-10 team.
- Ted Miller looks at Cal's three recruiting needs: linebacker, cornerback, and wide receiver. To help things out at WR, 2-3 star recruit Kaelin Clay is visiting Cal this weekend. With offers from Portland St, Northern Arizona, and Utah State, he is probably favoring Cal (at least, he should be).
- Craig Haubert of Scouts Inc breaks down Cal's small but talented recruiting class.
- After a sloppy start, Cal took complete control of the game with a 31-6 run en route to a 89-57 rout of the Ducks. PC scored 14 points in under three minutes to help Cal pull away during that run.
- Monty was pleased with Cal's hustle and effort on the floor. He's glad he had time to rest the starters as they get ready for Saturday morning's game against OSU. Asked if Jorge will return for that game, Monty said "possibly."
- Jamal Boykin called this game the team's "most complete game defensively" for not allowing Oregon to make a comeback, something the Bears have allowed several times this season.
- Another strong defensive effort helped the women to a 72-62 win over Oregon. Cal led much of the game and withstood several attempted comebacks by Oregon.
- Boyle was pleased with the defense, which muzzled an Oregon offense that averages over 90 points per game. Boyle says this is the best-conditioned team she has had. The team's aggressive, uptempo play has done great things for the defense.
