12. California Golden Bears (5-13, 0-6 Pac-12) Last Week: 12
Three weeks have gone by since conference play began, and the California Golden Bears are still looking for a way to secure their first Pac-12 win.
The most recent struggles for Cal came to fruition this past weekend where they found themselves out scored 153-111 in two games against Washington and Washington State.
Cal was able to hold the Huskies to under 80 points, which is a feat they had yet to accomplish during Pac-12 play this season. However, they couldn’t get anything going offensively as they never scored over 60 points.
Despite two blowout losses, sophomore forward Justice Sueing had himself a pretty good weekend. He led the team with 15 points against Washington State and added three boards, then against Washington, he struggled from the field but still managed eight points to go along with his team-leading eight rebounds and three assists.
The Golden Bears will look to secure that elusive first conference win this weekend when they kick off a four-game homestand with Colorado and Utah coming to Berkeley.
If Cal wants to turn around the ship, it has to start with their offense, and even though they are an extremely young team, they have the talent to do that. While this might be more of a rebuilding year for Cal, this team gives a look at what the future of college hoops might look like in Berkeley.
