  • Single Digit Quarters: In the win over the Warriors the Bears held Saint Martin's to single digits in the first, second, and fourth quarter. The Bears have held their opponents to 10 or fewer points four times in the preseason.

The Seattle native finished with 18 points and 10 rebounds.  She scored six of Cal's first eight points. The Bear's had three players record double-doubles in the two exhibition wins. Evelien Lutje Schipholt and Jadyn Bush had double-doubles in the win over Westmont.
  • Curry Goes for 20…again: Freshman guard Jayda Curry once again led the Bears in scoring, finishing with a game-high 20 points against Saint Martin's. The Southern California native averaged 21.5 points, while shooting 50.0 percent from the field in the two exhibition contests.

Tuesday is the official beginning of the Mark Campbell era in Sacramento, the longtime Oregon assistant was named Sacramento State's new head coach back in April. He takes over a squad that went 3-22 last season. The Hornets do return two of its three leading scorers from last year, including Summer Menke who led Sacramento State with 13.2 points per contest.  

Tuesday is the 10th time the Bears and Hornets have squared off. The series dates back to Jan. 15, 1976 when Cal played Sacramento State twice that season. The Hornets took the first four contests, including a 79-29 win over the Bears in Berkeley on Feb. 6, 1976. However, since the 1990s the series has belonged to the Bears who are on a five-game winning streak against the Hornets. In Berkeley, the Bears are 5-3 against Sacramento State. 
Cal will play two games this week, the second taking place across the Bay at the Chase Center, home of the Golden State Warriors, when USF hosts the Bears on Saturday. The Dons and Bears will tip off at 2:30 p.m. with the game being steamed on the WCC Network.
