Basketball: A good New Year’s Eve for Bears

The final day of 2008 proved to be a good one for the Cal basketball team, even though it didn’t play.

Two teams the Bears beat during the non-conference schedule posted big wins today, which will reflect well on Cal in the computer rankings. Utah knocked off Gonzaga 66-65 and UNLV got out of Louisville with a 56-55 victory.

The Bears began Wednesday at No. 27 in the Sagarin ratings. We’ll see if they get a little bump on Thursday.

Happy New Year!
