Cal MBB Insta-Recap: WELCOME TO THE KING’S COURT. Cal Wins 67-55.

No Rooks. No Bird.

NCAA Basketball: UC Santa Barbara at California Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

1st Half:

The Bears came out firing in the first half, and despite a total of 8 minutes without scoring drought, lead 40-22 going into half time. Cal was led by CHARLIE BUCKETS MOORE, who was absolutely spectacular once again. Buckets Moore had 17 points on 5/7 shooting and 3/3 from beyond the arc. He also had 2 assists and 3 steals. Ivan Rabb did not have that great of a start to the game only making one basket on five attempts, but he did have 2 rebounds, 2 assists and 1 steal.

2nd Half:

The Bears had a bit of a scare in the second half when a lead that had become 20, shrunk to just 11. Cal then stepped on the gas pedal to get the lead back up to 15 and did not let up after that. Ivan Rabb finished the game with 17 points on 6/12 shooting from the field, 5/9from the line. He also added in 10 rebounds, 2 assists, 2 steals and 1 block. Ivan Rabb registered his 3rd double-double in as many games.

What did you think of the game Cal fans? How do you think the team will be without Kameron Rooks? How do you judge Kingsley Okoroh’s career night?
