Cal Golden Bears Men's Basketball vs. Colorado Buffaloes Recap

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

7 straight victories for the Bears (20-9, 12-5)! Cal downed Colorado (19-9, 9-7) 62-46 to remain in contention for Pac-12 title.

How about that Cal defense? The Bears managed to hold the Buffs to 23.1% shooting for the game. While the Bears did not make any 3 pointer in this game, Bears did score early and often from within the paint for 46.4% field goal percentage.

While Allen Crabbe managed to get in foul trouble in the first half and was contained (only 8 point but 7 boards and 2 blocks), Tyrone Wallace (8-12 from the field) picked up the slack and posted a double-double (16 points to go with 11 boards). David Kravish also got a double-double with 14 points (on 6 for 9 shooting) and 11 boards. Justin Cobbs also contribute 16 points for the Bears.

Oh, by the way, Tyrone Wallace also did this:


Colorado struggled from the field with Spencer Dinwiddie shooting 2 for 15 from the field and Askia Booker shooting 2 for 11. Josh Scott returned for the Buffs but shot only 2 for 10 but did get 11 boards.

Bears jumped out to an early lead and stayed mostly ahead for the entire game. Bears' first 14 points all came from within the paint. While Sabatino Chen hit a 3 right before the half to pull the Buffs within 4 at the half, the Bears continued the stifling defense in the 2nd half.

All in all, the Bears continued the hot February play into March. If the Bears can have the same success in March as in February, watch out.

Now if we can only get Colorado to help us out next week against Oregon and the Washington schools against UCLA next week...
