Wow this is so cool.

How many Monty, Braun and even Cuonzo teams (many with Mickey Dee AA talent and highly rated teams on paper) went into Maples and left empty handed? Yet this team, and this coach does this. Always glad to see Cal beating Furd. Same with SDSU how many times had we lost to them with again with better teams on paper. Hard to understand, but I'm not complaining! What a comeback. Reminds of Jorge willing us to win down 20+ v. Furd at home. I'm hoping we can play like we did in the second half. Is that possible to bottle up and use the rest of the season?

Marcus hinted after the game that the practices have been brutal since the PSU game and Wyking said to expect more of the same going forward.

At the ESPN site, they show game flow and win probability throughout the game.

At the 3:29 mark, Stanfurd was ahead 70 - 59 and their probability of winning was 97.4%, per the site.

Glad the 2.6% kicked in!

Wonder what the odds were when we were down 22 in 2009:

Great post. Thanks.

I can't let the year end without confessing that I turned off the Cal game with a few minutes to go in the first half. It was dreadful, and there was such joy at the Coliseum. No excuses. I checked the final score before going to bed and could not believe my eyes.

The good news is that I didn't watch the SDSU game on TV either, just missed it. I may continue "not watching". The "road" Bears are doing the job, not pretty, but gritty.

I did see in the Box Score that Michael Greenstein was one of the officials. Is there a worse official in the Pac-12? I don't think so.

Mama Bear,! You turned it off? I watched the whole thing. They kept it close enough in the second half for me to still have hope. My seat mate kept calling me to turn on the Warriors as Curry was amazing blah blah blah. I could care less about the Warriors when Cal is playing

I only kept watching from my spot at the Crystal Bay Casino because I took the Bears (+7.5) and they kept hanging within striking distance to cover.

...that and because I blew the rest of my gambling stash on craps during halftime.

Cal hoops is unbelievably feast or famine this year. Loved the SDSU, Stanford, Wofford, and Seattle wins. Also some incredibly horrible basketball along the way, too.

Just left the Cal women's game vs UCLA. They came in ranked 20th at 10-2. They started up 7-0 and completely fell apart after that and were losing by 24 when I left.

At least I got to congratulate Justice walking up Bancroft after the game on a great game last night.

I think that coach should be happy the men's coach draws all the attention.
