Cal vs. Dayton Gamethread: No Richard Solmon for second game in a row

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

Will the Bears leave paradise on a positive note?

When: 4:30 pm PT

TV: ESPN

OK, so it's a bummer that Cal lost in the semis. But a win today would send Cal home with a 2-1 island record that includes two likely RPI value wins and one totally respectable, understandable loss. That would be solid. Scott's got your Dayton preview for a little pre game reading.

The big question is the status of Richard Solomon. He could be back. He could also not be back. As yesterday's game obviously shows, his presence is critical for Cal, particularly on defense. I think this is a game Cal can win without him, but I would prefer not to find out. Go Bears!
