The Bruins conclude their extended Bay Area trip with a trip to Haas Pavilion to take on the Golden Bears. In the first meeting between the teams at Pauley Pavilion, the Bruins saw a commanding lead slip away late, coming away with the 86-84 victory on a last second tip-in by Reeves Nelson. Joshua Smith left that game early after suffering a concussion, but will be back strong tonight while the hero of Cal's near comeback, Allen Crabbe, may miss tonight's game due to the aftereffects of a concussion suffered at Washington.
The Bruins have won 10 of their last 11 and sit in second place in the Pac-10, a game and a half behind conference leaders Arizona, while Cal has lost 4 straight games coming into tonight and hold a 6-8 conference record (13-13 overall), seventh in the Pac-10 with 5 games to go before the conference tourney.
