The Bears came out sluggish and went down 37 to 24 to end the half. Cal stuck to its 2-3 Zone and Press even though stanfurd was finding open dunks and midrange jumpers. Cal was led by Don Coleman’s 7 points on 2/9 shooting. All of Cal’s big men struggled with fouls. Marcus Lee with 2. Kingsley Okoroh with 3. Cole Welle with 2. Grant Anticevich with 3. The Bears took more shots than the Cardinal but made a handful less.
The Bear will not quit. The Bear will not die. Especially not against those trees in Palo Alto. The Bears did not lead all game but came back to gain the lead with 2 minutes left in the game. The Bears won on teh back of Don Coleman’s 2 free throws to get the lead up to 3 and the final rebound to win the game.
