Post-Game Notes: Stanford
Jan. 8, 2013
California's record moves to 12-2 on the year, ending the school-record best start. The 2012-13 team is the first California team to earn 12 wins in its first 13 games.
California started the starting lineup of Clarendon (G), Boyd (G), Jemerigbe (G), Brandon (F) and Caldwell (F) for the 14th consecutive game
Stanford wins its 10th straight in the series and moves to 60-17 all-time against Cal.
California will seek to begin a new winning streak after its current mark ends at six. It is the second time this year that Cal went on a six-game winning streak before losing to a top 5 team (last loss was at No. 4/4 Duke).
California drops its first home game of the season to become the last Pac-12 school to fall at home this year.
California has now led at the half in 12 of 14 games this season with its 31-29 lead over Stanford Tuesday night. The Bears did not lead against Duke (trailed, lost) or Colorado (tied, won). Tuesday night's game marks the first time that Cal lost after leading at the break.
The Bears move to 2-2 this season against teams ranked in the AP Top 25 - California defeated then-No. 19 Kansas (88-79) and then-No. 20 Colorado (53-49) and fell at then-No. 4 Duke (77-63) and No- 5 Stanford (62-53).
The Bears move to 3-1 in televised games this season (Old Dominion, Utah, Colorado, Stanford).
California held Stanford to 0-for-8 shooting from beyond the arc, making the Bears just the second team to prevent Stanford from hitting a 3-pointer this season (South Carolina).
The Bears improved their free-throw shooting from Sunday to out-perform Stanford in the area. California shot 61.9% (13-for-21) from the line while Stanford shot 58.8% (10-for-17) from the line.
