Cal Basketball Loses To San Diego State 64-63

The California Golden Bears lost what could be a critical non-conference matchup when they fell to the San Diego St. Aztecs. Cal lost Richard Solomon to suspension earlier last week, and the Bears didn't have the depth to win on the road on Sunday afternoon.

The Golden Bears actually didn't have a lot of trouble rebounding against the Aztecs, but it was their usually reliable shooting that let them down. Cal shot 40% from the field and missed seven crucial free throws. Allen Crabbe led the Bears with 23 points but took 21 shots to get there, and Justin Cobbs chipped in 17 points on 14 shots. Harper Kamp and Jorge Gutierrez had uncharacteristic games, combining to hit 4 of 17 shots. David Kravish had a nice game off the bench with eight points and six rebounds. But no one could stop Chase Tapley, who had 25 points on the night.

Cal still does not have a marquee win on the season, and with the Pac-12 struggling, they might be in short supply going forward.
