Saint Mary's Preview: Gaels Will Test 'New Look' Bears

November 30, 2017

Cal's new look had a successful unveiling Tuesday, but Saturday night it will get a real test.

Saint Mary's comes to Haas Pavillion and the Gaels are no Cal State Northridge. 

CSUN was overwhelmed by the revamped Bears, 83-63. After three disheartening losses in the Maui Jim Maui tournament, new Cal coach Wyking Jones overhauled his approach. He played his two big men, Kingsley Okoroh and Marcus Lee, one at a time rather than together, he called off the full-court press and had his team, which had used a zone defense much of the time in the first six games, play man-to-man almost exclusively.
