    We only hit 1 3-pointer and still put up 89 points… Nice.

    Win is a win. I wish Cal would mix in the zone a little bit more. Especially against teams like Georgia that drive it non stop. In a positive note, it was good to see Juzang, Brooks, and EJ show some life.

      Listen to Cal’s post presser and he pretty much doubles down on his disdain for zone. I was hoping that he would be more open to zone following the Arkansas game, but not happening. He hates zone. He is the head coach. End of story.

      Doesn’t make sense for a major college coach not to have at least 2 types of zone defenses to use.
      Zones, like other defenses, have weaknesses that can be exploited. But can still be used to confuse your opponent for a few minutes and change momentum. Not to practice, and have a zone prepared is just stubborn and ridiculous.

      Juzang, Brooks and EJ are the story of the game, imo. If those three stay on that trajectory this team could be special.

    I love Hagans and he is definitely the leader of this team, but damn it I get madder than a midget with a yo-yo with him sometimes with his poor shot selection and careless turnovers!

      5 reb
      4 steals
      9 assists

      3:1 assist/to ratio

      Poor and careless are not words I’d choose

    Great to see that seven Cats brought solid or better play in two consecutive games. I knew this would happen before February! Would really like to see Sestina get his mojo back and for Whitney to just get some luck or to have some breaks go his way. They both are great teammates and work so hard that I want success for them.
