RTC Live: SDSU @ CaliforniaPosted by rtmsf on December 8th, 2010
Game #67. It’s our maiden voyage of the season to one of the better venues on the west coast, Haas Pavilion in Berkeley, as SDSU comes to town.
So far it’s been a dream season for Steve Fisher’s San Diego State Aztecs, sitting at 8-0 and on the cusp of the top ten after impressive wins over Gonzaga, St. Mary’s and Wichita State. Three tough games to be sure, but SDSU would like to get a statement win over a power conference team to go along with that group. Tonight’s game at California will provide such an opportunity. A packed house is expected for the game, and the homestanding Bears will have to find a way to keep the crowd engaged when the three best players on the floor — Kawhi Leonard, Billy White and Malcolm Thomas — all play for the visiting team. The truth is that with a completely revamped lineup from last year’s Pac-10 regular season champions, you never quite know what you’re going to get with Cal. They’ve crushed New Mexico and defeated Temple, but lost to Notre Dame (in the infamous five-point half game) and Boston College convincingly. We have a feeling that with an undefeated highly ranked team coming to town, the Bears will be ready for a fight. Join us for what should be a great one tonight in Beserkeley.
