Now that’s more like it. After a choppy first half (but a decent start!), the Cats cruised past Texas A&M with a final score of 68-51. Alex Poythress led the way with a season high 16 points and five rebounds, looking every bit the player Cal has raved about recently. James Young had 15 points, followed by Julius Randle with 13 points and 11 rebounds.
While Alex’s play is the story of the game, another major storyline is the disappearance of Willie Cauley-Stein. For the third game in a row, Willie looked listless and completely out of it, scoring only one point and grabbing one rebound. I’m sure Cal will be asked about that tonight.
For now, let’s all revel in Alex’s big night. Do the Cal hop!
