It’s another edition of Pac 12 after dark on Friday night.
The Oregon State Beavers travel down the coast to California to take on the Golden Bears.
This is the second meeting of the year. The Golden Bears won the first match up 69-58.
Oregon State Beavers
This is kind of a gap year for the Oregon State Beavers. They surprised many people when they made the dance last year. Next year they have some big recruits coming in and their best player will be back from injury.
So this year is a year for some of the players to get experience but that’s about all the good that will come out of it.
They come into this game with a 5-24 record and sit in last place of the Pac 12. They only have one conference win so far this season.
Most of the problems for the Beavers come on the offensive end of the floor. On the season they only average just over 63 points per game well shooting 42 percent from the field.
For the Beavers to win this game they need to score more. Cal plays a slower pace of play so the Beavers defense shouldn’t be as huge of concern.
California Golden Bears
The California Golden Bears are in free fall mode right now, and a win over the Beavers on Friday night would at least temporally stop it.
After being a virtual lock a few weeks ago to make the NCAA Tournament the Bears might need some help to make the big dance.
They missed a golden opportunity to boost their chances on Wednesday night. They led the Oregon Ducks most of the game, but a late game collapse and a Dillon Brooks three pointer as time ran out in the game broke the Bears hearts, and maybe their tournament hopes.
They are going to need to win out and probably a couple wins in the Pac 12 tournament to make it.
The Golden Bears strength is on the defensive side of the ball. They only give up 62.9 points which is 14th best in the country.
For Cal to win they just can’t overlook this game. They are the better team in this match up and need to not have a hangover from their heartbreaking loss against the Ducks.

Both of these teams play slower paced games.
But 121 points is not many points at all.

I expect the Bears to play a little faster in this game and for the two teams to cover the over.
