Ugly first half

Cal leads 35-33 at the end of a first half that had about as much flow as a mud pie.
The Huskies missed six of their first seven shots but actually ended up shooting 12-25 for the half. Unfortunately for them, they are just 6-13 from the free throw line, otherwise they’d have the lead.
Cal is 12-30 from the field, and while UW’s defense seems a little better, the Bears are also simply missing a lot of open shots. Omar Wilkes missed a point-blank dunk and Ryan Anderson is 0-4 on three-pointers.
Justin Dentmon has been a sparkplug for the Huskies with six points, four rebounds and three assists continuing his resurgance begun at Stanford, and Hans Gasser has turned in some of his best moments of the season with five points and two rebounds.
But Spencer Hawes continues to struggle, forcing a few too many shots under heavy duress and making just 3-7 for seven points, and Jon Brockman picked up two early fouls and has just four points and three rebounds.
