Cal Golden Bears
Cal opened their season with a pair of losses, but they’ve responded with two comeback victories over San Diego and Southern Utah. The Golden Bears took the Thunder Birds to overtime, and finished the mission behind a big game from Andre Kelly.
Kelly has started his senior season on a strong note. The 6’9 forward posted career-highs of 29 points and 15 rebounds against Southern Utah, and figures to be the catalyst of this Cal team. Kelly’s averaging 16.8 ppg and 10.8 rpg through four games.
Fellow senior Grant Anticevich joins him up front. The 6’9 Aussie recorded a double-double against UNLV, and he’s averaging 11.8 ppg aand 7.5 rpg.
Jordan Shepherd and Joel Brown start in the backcourt for Cal. Shepherd transferred in from Charlotte, and scored 27 points in the opener, while Brown leads the team in assists (3.8).
Florida followed up defeating in-state rival Florida State by blowing out Milwaukee. The Gators took an 11-point lead into halftime, before pouring it on to pick up the 81-45 victory.
Myreon Jones transferred in from Penn State and got straight to work. The senior guard hit four threes, paced the Gators with 20 points, and grabbed six rebounds in the season opening win against Elon.
Colin Castleton and Anthony Duruji give the Gators a sound, experienced front court. Castleton posted a monster 16-point, 15-rebound double-double against FSU, while Duruji scored 15 points and grabbed seven boards.
Senior guard Tyree Appleby joins Jones in the backcourt after a solid first season in Gainesville. The former Cleveland State guard scored 14 points in the opener, while hitting three treys.

4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Florida -12.5
The Gators look like they’ll be contenders in the SEC, while Cal is already playing for an NIT bid. Their opening season loss to UC-San Diego was embarrassing, and their struggle with Southern Utah didn’t go unnoticed. If Florida neutralizes Andre Kelly with their tough front court, Cal could be in for a long night.
