Good Recruiting Effort, Bad Game Effort

It was either a lack of energy or a big win hang-over that took place at Wells Fargo on Saturday afternoon.  I don’t what exactly happen but right before half and the first half of the second half, we looked like we would rather not be playing.  If it wasn’t for Abbott having a career game with 30, we would have lost by the same.  It amazing that Pendergraph can have a game like he had against Arizona last week and Saturday play like he never had before. 

In other news…I saw a post recruiting interview with Sydney’s Dad.  He mentioned that the trip couldn’t have been better.  ASU is said to be the leader for his services in 2009, but his list includes some big time programs.  (Kentucky, Texas, USC, UCLA)



  1. Sydney’s Dad? Is that the 6-10 kid? And where was that interview? Biggest thing I saw from the stat sheet was too much outside shooting, not enough getting the ball in the paint. Even if Pendergraph is having a bad day, inside shots are still better than all jump shots.

  2. Yeah, Renardo Sydney is the #1 PF for the Class of 2009. He is a 5 star recruit out of California. He attended the same high school as Glasser and Harden. interviewed his father after the game.

    I think Cal had the right idea of making us into a shooting team. They packed in that zone and didn’t allow penetration or low post-ups. When that happens, we have to be able to knock down shots.
