Pac-12 basketball: Cal routed again
PULLMAN, Wash. — Cal’s basketball season under rookie coach Wyking Jones grows darker by the game.
Saturday the Bears were routed 78-53 by Washington State, a team that entered winless in Pac-12 play and was 8-8 overall.
Cal (7-11, 1-4) has dropped four consecutive games and there is little hope on the horizon. The Bears next play the Arizona schools, both ranked among the Top 20, and then head to south to play UCLA and USC.
The Bears trailed 37-34 early in the second half, but scored only eight points the last 10 minutes of the game.
