What Cal basketball moment in history would you change?

There are a few to pick from.

Say you could take a moment in Cal basketball history and change it. What would it be and why?

mpeters10: I'd go back to right before the NCAA Tournament game against Hawaii to plead with the basketball Gods to let Ty and Jabari be healthy, and for Jaylen to snap out of the funk he was in. That team had a legit shot at going extremely deep that tournament.

TwistNHook: Shantay. Barnes. Do I need to say more?

Nik Jam: Whatever triggered the injuries to Jabari and Tyrone before the NCAA Tourney in 2016... prevent them.

Avinash: Hard to pick between the 2012 Cal basketball team that blew a Pac-12 title against middling Stanford, or the 2013 Cal basketball team that got blown out in Haas against another middling Stanford team. I think I'd go with the 2012 team, since I liked that team more and it was generally a better squad all-around; the 2013 team pulled wins out of their butts and played over their heads to get to that record. Also, that loss knocked Cal down into the First Four, leading to one of the more unpleasant beatings I can remember as a Cal fan against South Florida.
