So far the Tigers are looking good. The Tiger defense wasn't giving the Golden Bears any good looks on its first two possessions and Cal drew an offensive foul to send the ball the other way.

Saturday, Dec. 5

It's 12:45 p.m. (PT) and the women's basketball team is warming up for the first of two games at the Collier's International Classic versus No. 3-ranked California. It's a busy day on the Cal campus. The final regular season football game got underway at noon versus Washington and the first and second rounds of the NCAA volleyball tournament are being held here this weekend as well.

The team arrived in San Francisco at around 9 p.m., (PT) on Thursday and went directly to dinner. The seven hour flight and realizing it was really 1 a.m., back in New Jersey, when we arrived at the hotel at the Berkeley Marina was obvious on the faces of the players. The team however was up at 8:30 a.m., on Friday, for breakfast followed by film and practice at Cal. In the evening the team visited Pier 39 - highlighted by a magic show - and had dinner at the Hard Rock.

This morning, the team was up at 6:30 a.m., and headed to Hass Pavilion to practice and familarize themselves with the main court. Pre-game meal followed and then some studying/relaxation before heading back to Hass.

Check back in for game updates and check back tomorrow to find out what the Tigers were up to on Saturday night.
