<p class="txt">How much did Leon Powe's foul woes affect Cal in the team's 69-58 loss to Stanford on Saturday at Haas Pavilion? During the 18:04 that he played, the Bears played Stanford even at 25-25, however during the other 21:56, Cal was outscored 44-34.</p>

<p class="txt">With 6:33 left, the Bears leading Washington State 48-44 and four of their starters having re-entered the game after getting a breather, Cal was well-positioned to win their second straight conference game. Yet the Bears could manage only two points the rest of the way - on a steal and layup by A.J. Diggs -as the Cougars, led by Marcus Moore's 14 points, pulled a 55-50 upset at Haas Pavilion.</p>

<p class=txt>Only 16 teams will remain in the NCAA Tournament after Sunday - the absolute brutal truth of how swift the end can come for some programs. For many players, it's the end of a career. March Madness is primarily about survival for those teams who do find a way to advance. It's a chance to 'keep on playing', and that phrase is one of the key ingredients in March Madness upsets. The Big Dance is all about drama and emotion. How can you not love it?

<p class="txt">For all the early season expections that the Cal basketball team has exceeded, there's a growing concern that the team is now like a vehicle on very old tires - with blowouts of all sorts looming ahead. But if the team needed something to get its attention, a resounding loss to a USC team that they had beaten twice this year might do the trick. </P>

<p class="txt"> Halfway through the first half, Oregon State was leading Cal 9-8 as coffee pots were being fired up throughout the Bay Area as the Bear faithful tried to stay awake in hopes that their team wouldn't suffer the same fate as the #1, #2 and #4 seeds on the Pac-10 conference tourney. But in the second half, the Bear offense came out of hibernation as a 17-3 run helped give Cal a rare lopsided win. </p>

<p class=txt>The Bears look for revenge on Senior Day. <br><br>When Cal lost in Tempe at the tail end of January, they immediately lost some of their early season Pac-10 momentum. Prior to the ASU contest, the Bears were able to play a step ahead of teams as they ran off to a 7-0 Pac-10 start. Cal just seemed to find a way to win each game, however all that changed in Tempe, for better or worse. Including the loss to ASU, Cal is 5-4 in their past 9 games.
