Sorry everyone for forgetting about Saturday, blame my choir commitments and the early start time for the Cal Baseball game I went to, but nonetheless there is a lot of stuff I missed over the last week.


“They’re doing a really good job of competing, and really, it’s about learning and practicing,” he said. “There’s just so much time. I wouldn’t say there’s anything that has been settled, by any means yet. They’ll continue to develop through spring, and possibly through fall.” - Justin Wilcox

Men’s Basketball

Women’s Basketball

  • Kristine Anigwe, Mikayla Cowling, Asha Thomas, and Mi’Cole Cayton participated in a Team USA 3x3 tournament that featured six Pac-12 teams (USC, UW, WSU, OSU and Oregon the others) and 3 other teams. Unfortunately, Kristine was injured in the quarterfinal that Cal won over USC and they wound up losing in the semi-finals to Oregon. Full report here.
  • Congrats to incoming Cal Bear Kianna Smith for winning a John Wooden award given to several of the best high school players in the country. (This was the first year high school women’s basketball players received awards.)



Men’s Gymnastics

Track and Field

  • The Big Meet was this weekend at Stanford. The Cal men defeated the Cardinal but the women fell short. The men won the final four events to take the meet, including a thrilling 4x400-meter relay victory. A solid discus effort by dual athlete (football legend!) Malik McMorris may have sealed the deal for the men as well.

Bears in the Pros

Go Bears! (I mean... unless Marshawn signs with the Pats. Kidding???)
