Bears Stagger Out of Big Apple Winless

Unable to rebound from Thursday's 95-73 blowout loss to Syracuse, the No. 13 California Golden Bears fall to No. 15 Ohio State 76-70 in the third-place game of the 2K Sports Classic on Friday night at Madison Square Garden. Jerome Randle led Cal with 26 points as the Bears go winless in the two games played in New York City...

"I have to admit that I was shocked that we played 80 minutes against zone," said Cal head coach Mike Montgomery.

"We didn't play against man at all. Maybe we won't again--I don't know? It just changes what you are doing a little bit. We definitely played harder in the second half instead of letting them do onto us. When that happens you are going to give yourself chances, at least to compete, which I thought we did which is important. We, at least, learned that lesson."
