Cal MBB Insta-Recap: Hello February. The Bears are here. CAL W over ASU. 68-43.


NCAA Basketball: California at Arizona State Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports


Another Cal game. Another weird game. Cal jumped out to a 28-17 lead at the half led by Ivan Rabb who had 8 points on 3-5 shooting with 7 rebounds and 2 assists. Cal as a team shot 47.8% from the field and limited ASU to just 24.1% from the field. The Bears sat back in a 2-3 zone and forced ASU to beat them from the 3 point land, and that plan worked as ASU shot just 9.1% (1-11) from 3. The Bears also dominated the glass, outrebounding the Sun Devils 23-13.


The Bears came into the 2nd half focused and ready to roll. They continued their dominance on defense and pushed their offense through Ivan Rabb. The Bears increased their lead to 20 points at the Under-12 Media TO, leading ASU 46-26. Ivan Rabb completed another double double with 14 points on 5-8 shooting and 11 rebounds. Grant Mullins also was amazing from behind the arc shooting a clean 6-6 from the field and from 3, before missing his final 3 shots. Jabari Bird was solid as well with 9 points on 4-9 shooting with 8 rebounds and 3 assists.
