A Strange Plea to the Roundball Deities
So we caught Oregon on a savage rebound yesterday, after they had their worst shooting game in years Thursday against Stanford. It wasn't pretty. The Ducks were in search of redemption and fortune smiled on their efforts with an absurdly good percentage from behind the arc in the second half. Who is Cal's next opponent? Arizona. At one point in the first half, the Wildcats were leading Arizona State 22-6. But the Sun Devils rallied impressively and Arizona started to look like the ghost of last year's team. Now Arizona State is up ten with less than seven minutes to go. Oh, gods of basketball, please find a way to make the Wildcats rediscover the art of defense so that they can pull off a comeback win! Because if you don't, my Bears will be screwed yet again. And I can only take so much pain right now. It's bad enough that I have to make a public plea for you to intercede on behalf of bearing down instead of bearing up. So, once again, I implore you!

What a shitastic game. If Jordan Hill knew how to defend a pick-and-roll (or if someone on the coaching staff had the good sense to tell him not to leave Pendergraph every damn time a pick was set)...
If it hadn't been 75 degrees and gorgeous outside today, I would've been pissed off the entire afternoon.

I had been thinking that O'Neill represented a coaching improvement until the UCLA game. Now I'm not sure what to think. Given that they must practice that when they are going over their different defenses, how could they not tell him, in a worst-case scenario, to not switch, conceding Pedergraph some outside shots, rather than letting him dunk over and over and over. Jesus.
