Cal Women Entertain Oregon State Saturday Night
Jan. 11, 2002
The California women's basketball team has been in almost every game it has played this season with five minutes or less to play in the game. Unfortunely, their youth -- seven freshmen and four sophomores -- has contributed to the Bears not doing well in crunch time and the team sitting at 5-9 overall and 0-5 in Pac-10 play.
Saturday, Cal looks to win its first Pac-10 game of the season and to snap an eight-game league losing streak dating back to last season when the Golden Bears host Oregon State (8-8, 4-3 Pac-10) at Haas Pavilion. Game time is at 7 p.m.
Tomorrow night is YMCA Night at Cal Basketball. YMCA members -- adults and youth - will be admitted for $1 with a coupon available at the Downtown YMCA at 3350 Broadway in Oakland.
The Bears are coming off a 65-53 loss to Oregon Thursday night. The Bears trailed 52-51 with 3:34 to play, but the Ducks ended the game on a 13-2 run. Ami Forney and LaTasha O'Keith each posted 13 points to pace the Bears.
Meanwhile, Oregon State lost to No. 4 Stanford, 91-54, yesterday. Felecia Ragland, last year's Pac-10 Player of the Year, posted 20 points against the Cardinal.
OSU leads the all-time series with Cal, 23-18, but the Bears won both games last year -- 72-60 in Berkeley and 79-72 in Corvallis.
