The Bears started the game a little slow, and was down early. Compared to the last 3 games in which the Bears came out firing on all cylinders, this was definitely a strange sight. It was a struggle to score the basket even though the Bears had 36 shot attempts to OSU’s 21. The 3 ball did not fall for the Bears who did not make a single 3 in the first half. Cal had success getting to the basket and knocking down FTs. Cal worked the paint and scored 28 of their 39 points inside. Cal was led by Ivan Rabb who had 14 points on 5/8 shooting and 4/6 from the line with 7 rebounds.
Cal increased their lead to 20 points at the 12:58 mark and did not look back. The Bears increased the lead to 30 to end the game 76-46. Ivan Rabb did not reach another double-double but finished the night with 16 points on 6/11 shooting, 4/6 from the FT line and 9 rebounds. Sam Singer was perfect from the field shooting 7-7 from the field and 14 points. Charlie Moore had 11 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists, another great night from the freshman.
