It was ugly. The Bears got into an early 11-0 hole and never recovered. Cal ended the half down by 19. Cal was led by Don Coleman who scored 12 points on 4/12 shooting. The Bears struggled with the Portland State press, coughing up the ball 16 times in the first half. Passes were lazy. Players looked confused and did not play with any urgency as they started to give the ball over. Towards the end of the half the Bears looked uncomfortable and the press and turnovers affected them mentally.
Well. I think we’ll leave it at that... We gave up 100+ points at home to a Big Sky Team. We turned the ball over every time they asked. Gave up offensive rebounds when they jumped. It was ugly then it got uglier. I had no idea that was possible. Here is your final box score.
