Gaels Big First Half Too Much for Bears to Overcome

December 2, 2017

Cal actually won the second half of Saturday night's game against Saint Mary's at Haas Pavilion, outscoring the Gaels, 33-30, in the final 20 minutes.

Unfortunately the Gaels had piled up a 14-point lead by halftime and that insured their 74-63 victory.

Using the remedy for success that has worked for them for most of head coach Randy  Bennett's 17 years, the Gaels (6-2) opened a 10-1 lead before Cal (3-5) had a field goal. Crisp passing, intelligent ball movement and tenacious defense enabled Saint Mary's to take the advantage and hold onto it.
