Basketball: Moute a Bidias signs with Bears

Roger Moute a Bidias, younger brother of former UCLA standout and current Milwaukee Bucks player Luc Richard Mbah a Moute, has signed a national letter-of-intent to play next season at Cal. We reported his commitment to the Bears last week.

The 6-foot-7 forward, a consensus three-star prospect, is the fifth member of the Bears’ recruiting class that is headlined by top-20 talent Jabari Bird of Salesian High.

Cal coach Mike Montgomery called Moute a Bidias “an extremely athletic young man with great upside. Roger is a very engaging individual that I think is going to be a tremendous asset to the Cal community.”

A native of Cameroon, Moute a Bidias averaged 10 points and 10 rebounds last season at Notre Dame Prep in Fitchburg, Mass.

  1. Welcome to Cal, Roger!

    Football hijack. Twitter rumor I hope is true:

    “According to multiple sources, #Cal strength and conditioning coach Mike Blasquez has been let go.”

    I don’t know if it is directly attributable to mb’s program but we did seem to suffer an inordinately high number of injuries.

    Glad SD is going to try someone else.

  2. I hope it’s not because of any shenanigans. As bad as we’ve been, you’d think it’s just because of the injuries, but who knows? Personally, I think it’s the turf. I miss natural grass, and the rubberized stuff is loaded with carcinogens anyway.

  3. Cal great running back Chuck Muncie moved on to the Golden Bear Den in the Sky. Muncie was a powerful, slicing runner who brought exciting times to Memorial Stadium in the mid-70’s. He changed his life around and helped others do the same. Today is a sad day for all Cal fans who saw him play or knew of his post-football good deeds.

    Go Chuck and Go Bears!

  4. RIP Chuck Muncie! As a life long charger fan you were one of the greats from the 80’s!
