Cats top Cal at Haas Pavilion, 78-74

The Cats finally won a game in their red Nike Hyper Elite unis as they upset the Pac 12 leading Golden Bears. The Cats were down early by a growing deficit as the crowd at Haas began chanting "over-rated", but they clawed back as they went on a scoring tear to pull ahead by 11 at the half. However, the Golden Bears would wake up from their shooting hibernation as they slew together a series of possessions for three-point plays and eventually tied the game. With the game knotted up down the stretch, Kyle Fogg would nail a key three-pointer with about a minute to go. Cal would then foul to get the ball back, but it wasn't enough as the Cats earned a key Pac12 victory. Also, to Jorge Gutierrez, flopping and shooting free throws doesn't count as balling hard and knocking down J's.
