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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

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