Follow along with publisher Ryan Gorcey as the Bears (10-9, 3-4 in the Pac-10) host Oregon State (8-10, 3-4) in the opener of a four-game home stand at Haas Pavilion. Cal tips off at 8 pm.
The game will be televised live on Fox Sports Net and Comcast Sports Net Bay Area. On your radio dial, you can find the game at KNEW 910 AM, Sirius 121 and XM 141.
Some quick notes during the warm-up:
True freshman Alex Rossi took some threes more than an hour before game time, and made 10 to 11 threes in a row, the only miss coming off of a bad pass. Encouraging signs, but with more than half the season gone, it doesn't look like the team would burn his redshirt.
Rossi's recruiting classmate Allen Crabbe is averaging just under 17.0 points per game in conference play.
Tonight's projected lineup for Cal is a familiar one: Crabbe, point guard Brandon Smith, power forward Harper Kamp, center Markhuri Sanders-Frison and shooting guard Jorge Gutierrez.
Preliminary lineup for the Beavers shakes out with 6-foot-4, 182-pound sophomore shooting guard Jared Cunningham; 6-foot-3, 188-pound senior guard Calvin Haynes; 6-foot-9, 220-pound senior power forward Omari Johnson at the top of Oregon State's 1-3-1 zone; 6-foot-8, 246-pound senior forward Daniel Deane and 6-foot-3, 188-pound redshirt freshman guard Roberto Nelson.
