This is your open thread for Cal-Chico State. After the jump,  some details on tonight's exhibition matchup.

Farudo helps us out with how to see the game.

Tonight’s exhibition game is not being carried over KFRC-1550 AM. But fans can pick it up through CBS online, with Roxy Bernstein and Tom McKim calling the action, as usual. You can find the link  at the bottom of this Cal news release.

Here's the All-Access video link, although I think you have to pay for Cal All-Access, $8 or something a month. You can cancel it at your lesiure; there are a few more non-televised games on Cal hoops the rest of the season though. You can also listen to the game on Chico State radio.

For people who want something free, there might be a link to the scoreboard feed later on sans play-by-play. If it's available, we'll post it in the comments close to tipoff, look out for it. 

As for Chico State, here's a quick look at their team. A direct contrast to Cal with four returning senior starters, Chico State has a bunch of hoopsters who'll be playing together for the first time.

Flores is one of many new faces on the Chico State team that has been picked to finish eighth in the 12-team California Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) Coaches’ Poll. The Wildcats were 8-19 last season, but only three players from that team will be in uniform against Cal – Zach Graves, Roderick Hawkins, and Nick Lonnegren. Chris Sharp will miss the game and may miss the entire year with a broken foot, and Joshua Jackson is redshirting this season.

Flores, a sophomore transfer from Sonoma State, and freshmen Ethan Stone, Spencer Moyer, Damario Sims, Jake Lovisolo, Powell Lee, and Cameron Fenley each joined the program last season and redshirted. Brian Seals, Darren Nye, Jason Conrad, and Terence Pellum transferred in this year. Jon Baird returns after a two-year hiatus for his senior season.

Here's some video of them in practice.

As for the university itself, I'm sure they have fine institutions...but, well...


Come on, you didn't think I was going to end this without displaying the kicking Chico night life?
