It's game time again at Haas. Can the Bears (15-9, 7-5) keep up the great play of late and keep alive the revived tournament chance against a resurgent USC (12-13, 7-5) squad who have fired their coach mid season?GO BEARS!

Preview: from CGB's Scott Chong (aka Kodiak)

It's a battle for 4th place in the Pac-12 Conference. Despite a sub 0.500 record for the season, USC has been playing well since a mid season coaching change and share the same conference record as the Bears. Can the Bears defend our Haas and beat USC for the 4th straight time? Allen Crabbe seems to get fired up playing against the LA schools, can he make another run at another ESPN.com's National Player of the Week title (Oregon game on Thursday is on ESPN2)?

Brandon Smith Update:

From Jeff Faraudo's preview:

UPDATE: Senior guard Brandon Smith cleared to play today.

By the way, Brandon Smith is apparently selling some of his shoes (I guess they have been worn by him)

Random: Tonight is apparently 70's night at Haas. More importantly,

Allen Crabbe has moved to No. 12 on Cal’s career scoring list with 1,401 points. Next up: Rickey Hawthorne (1973-76) with 1,413 points.

GO BEARS!
