Cal MBB Insta-Recap: Bears get dismantled in the south bay against Santa Clara, lose 52-71

Ugly loss

NCAA Basketball: California at Duke Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports

1st Half

The Bears had the lead just once in the half. That pretty much tells the whole story. The Bears were sloppy with ball and committed too many offensive fouls. Santa Clara had 22 points in the paint which was more than half of their total points. The Bears were outplayed in every statistical category of the game other than steals. Matt Bradley had 8 points on 2-9 shooting, going 0-3 from beyond the arc but 4-5 from the line. The Bears only made 9 field goals in the first half.

2nd Half

My internet also went out for the majority of the second half so this is the most recap will be for the half: It got worse.
