California Golden Bears vs UCLA Bruins 01/19/2020
California Golden Bears
California Golden Bears are holding the last spot in the Pac-12 with their weak overall record. The Bears are entering this game after a terrible defeat against USC Trojans. California was restricted to just 56 points and the Trojans managed to score 88 in return. Matt Bradley played a decent game for the Bears, but they struggled equally with their field goal attempts and shooting from the three-point territory. California will need to equally work on its offensive and defensive strategy to get past teams with a winning record.
