Cal is entering the last stretch of their brutal seven game start to Pac-10 play. They're currently 2-3, and could've won a third game against Arizona. A split would be desirable, particularly when they head south to face their California rivals. UCLA is starting to get their act together despite relative bouts of inconsistency, and USC is reeling from three big losses (two against the Oregon bottom dwellers, another with the transfer of Bryce Jones).

If the Bears want to seriously challenge for the top tier of the Pac-10 conference, they at least need a split of these two games, particularly with a long desired four game homestand on its way. Tonight's game at Pauley will be very difficult to pull off, but if Cal can find a way to contain the paint players for the Bruins and rush people off the three point line, they'll have a shot.
