As I write, the women's basketball team is on the floor for its final practice before flying to Los Angeles for its own set of games against USC and UCLA this weekend.
The No. 4 women's water polo team is practicing nearby at Spieker Pool, preparing further for its match up at No. 10 San Jose State on Saturday afternoon.
Meanwhile, the Utah baseball team is out testing the conditions of Evans Diamond before its three game series against No. 17 Cal kicks off tomorrow, weather permitting. As an aside, a very special guest will be on hand for Sunday's series finale between the Bears and the Utes.
The men's basketball team has already concluded its game day shoot around and has finished its pregame meal. Soon, the Bears will report to the locker room and begin their normal pregame routine.
Similarly, numerous staff members are also performing their normal pregame duties. Two UCPD squad cars are parked outside the main entrance of Haas, other workers are opening concession stands and stocking them with food and the athletic department employees not scheduled to work tonight's games are locking their offices and heading home for the evening.
Very shortly I'll be leaving the desk I work at - it's simply an extra computer, I can't call it "mine" - to shadow the Bears before taking in all the action from press row.
As I mentioned earlier, take to Twitter to let me know if you're going to be at Haas tonight. I'd love to stop by and talk Cal sports with you at some point during the game. And if you couldn't make it tonight, you don't have to worry - I'll be publishing exclusive men's basketball content to the Bear Blog tomorrow.
