was disheartened to see cal lie down last night in their play-in game against the university of south florida for the opportunity to square off against temple in the field of 64.
they've been grinding for the last 3-4 weeks trying to finish up the pac-12 strong and get into the tourney and it turns out they barely got in, sneaking ahead of the regular season conference champs washington huskies.
still, it was no excuse for their flimsy effort against the defensive-minded bulls. outside of PF harper kamp, nobody for cal put up a fight, so their season - and validation that the pac-12 was terrible - has come to an abrupt end...
now on to march madness!
