Rematch with California

New, 13 comments

Wasn't letter of intent day fun? Talk about a sensory overload of everything college football! We all get a bit of a rest between now and the end of March when spring football begins.

It's time to focus your attention on a team that is on top of the Pac 10 conference standings. The Huskies are on a tough road trip to the Bay Area this week and it all starts tonight in Berkeley against the California Golden Bears.

The last time these two teams played California won in triple overtime up in Seattle. Washington controlled the game for the most part but folded in the clutch against the Bears. This time they play in Berkeley and I expect another down to the wire contest between two evenly matched teams.

Cal is led by the trio of PG Jerome Randle and swing men Patrick Christopher and Theo Robertson. All three of those guys are explosive. Christopher is always dangerous. He was responsible for the 3-OT victory over the UW, lighting up Washington for 27 points and 11 rebounds in the 88-85 win.

One thing UW has going for themselves right now is that they have played better than the Bears since they last met. Cal has lost four of five games since beating the Huskies in Seattle. I think that will carry over into Thursday's matchup and the Huskies should be able to pull out a hard fought win on the road.

Sweep at home and split on the road is the mantra right now for this Husky team but they may just be good enough to come out of the Bay Area unscathed this weekend.
