My prediction is another loss. Cal has lost this team. They're not responding to anything.
Going to be ugly, but I think we will sneak out a win.

Three hours to tip off.
Im going to have to disagree with you somewhat. I believe that Noel is fast becomming our go to guy on both ends of the court. He is averaging double digits in pts and is right at double digits in rebounds and has a good blocked shot average and leads the team in steals. I would call that a go to guy kind of stats.
