Unsurprisingly Cal's latest home win didn't do much to boost their tournament position. The Bracket Project still has the Bears as a nine seed and the other notable Bracketology projections have the Bears remaining as an eleven seed. This all can change quite rapidly for the Bears this upcoming week. With projected three seed Oregon coming to town along with current bubble candidate Oregon State, the Bears could move out of the daunting nine position. Cal will have to continue their unblemished record at home and play some of their best basketball of the year to beat the Ducks. Luckily for the Bears, winning on the road this year for any Pac-12 team has become increasingly difficult.
Cuonzo talked about the upcoming home games and the potential of this Cal team in his weekly press conference below:
- "The biggest key for our guys, playing the way we know how to play, protecting our home court and moving on from there."
On Tyrone during the injury:
- "Extremely hard as a senior, but in Tyrone's case he has been more vocal in the two years I have been around and leading the locker room"
- "He sees the doctor on Thursday and we go from there"
- "When guys are injured, if he is cleared to play that means he is playing. After that you judge his condition and feel for the game. If he is cleared in my mind then he is a part of the rotation."
