It's another busy day in Bear land as the women's team takes on Texas at the exact same time as the men are facing Denver in Berkeley. My solution? headphones for the women, TV for the men! For the Cal vs. Denver open thread, click here!
The Bears dispatched Hawaii last night in a low-key game by the score of 69-54. The most important stat, besides a W? No Bear played more than 25 minutes, which should hopefully help the team play fresh against Texas less than 16 hours later today.
For a little info on Texas you can read CGB's preview of the Wahine Showdown. They defeated Virginia yesterday, 79-53. Seeing a 26 point margin is pretty intimidating, considering Virginia was coming off a win over the #3 team in the nation. Texas beat Virginia by out rebounding them 38-20 (something we can hopefully duplicate against Virginia) and holding the Cavaliers to 18-53 (34%) from the field. The Longhorns are ranked 24th and will be looking to move up the polls with a win today. Go Bears!
