The Bears came out firing on all cyliders and jumped out to a 18-4 lead at the 11 minute mark. Charlie Moore paced the bears on offense with 9 points on 4/8 shooting, 1⁄2 from 3, 4 assists and 2 steals. Ivan Rabb continued his dominance of the glass by grabbing 6 rebounds in the first half. Cal forced 10 TOs from Utah while only committing 5. It helped the Bears maintain the lead and into halftime with a score of 34-26.
The Bears came out on the opposite end of the energy spectrum in the second half. Cal’s lead evaporated and was overtaken 55-52 at the 3:21 mark. Charlie More had ice in his veins to tie it up on a 1-and-1. And the game went into overtime after a controversial call to give Utah the ball with 2.1 seconds left to play. And after that, Cal into DOUBLE OT. The winning play was a Alley-Oop from Charlie to Jabari who threw it down with just 2.1 seconds to go.
