In theory, this should be an easy win for the Bears. Sacramento State is 1-4 and was just beaten the other night by 24 points against Villanova.
Just like last year, Sac St. is one of the most extreme teams in the country stylistically. They will play 15 different players in rotation in order to run, press, and make the game crazy fast. Almost half of their shots are 3 pointers, and their opponents average almost 25 turnovers/game. This is goofy basketball, but also fun basketball. Somebody's scoring a crazy amount of points (that somebody is probably Kristine Anigwe.)
This wasn't the game that Cal wanted in their own tournament, but they'll have to make the best of it and respond with a no doubt win.
