California vs Stanford

College Basketball 
9:00 PM EST
Rotation #744
California +5.5 over Stanford (loss)
Stanford is impressive.  This team has won a few games short handed and have been competitive without multiple starters.  This is a true sleeper team when everybody gets healthy heading into March.  Cal on the other hand has a great coach, but other than that have been disappointing this year.  Cal does have size and they have the ability to win on the glass, but they must not turn this game into a track meet.  There are a lot of experienced players on this team that should have their way with some of the younger Stanford players that were forced into this rotation due to injury.  I just don’t think the Cardinal have the ability to win on the road by multiple possessions and don’t think it will be easy for them to close out a game with guys bouncing in and out of their lineup.  I like the dog tonight.  Take Cal.
