Cal Enters NCAA Tournament Streaking

The California Golden Bears head into March Madness as a hot play on the court and at the betting window, as they have gone 9-2 SU and 8-2-1 ATS in their final 11 games. Cal will look to keep cooking when they start the NCAA Tournament against the Hawaii Rainbow Warriors Friday.

Shark Bites
  • Hawaii is 8-2 SU in their past 10 games against the Pac-12.
  • Cal is 5-0-1 ATS in their past six games when favored by 6.5 points or more.
  • Hawaii is 2-5 ATS in their past seven games.

Cal is not going to be an easy out for any team this season as they sport the best defense in the Pac-12, allowing just 67 ppg, while featuring a rim-attacking lineup like few others. Five different Bears are averaging double-digits this season, however, they'll be without senior Tyrone Wallace (15.3 points, 5.4 rebounds, 4.4 assists) who broke his hand.

Hawaii is the trendy darkhorse pick this tournament, as the Warriors posted a 27-8 SU record and came within single-digit points in losses to Texas Tech and Oklahoma this year. Stefan Jankovic is a difficult challenge for any team to contain as the 6’11 Serbian finished in the top five in points and rebounds in the Big West.
