Cal Men's Basketball defeats UCLA 76-72 in Overtime
Headed over to Cal today for Men's Basketball vs UCLA and what a game!! Especially for Jorge Gutierrez!!
In the final minutes of regulation it came down to Jorge to make his free throws. And hallelujah for the practice time he put in, he made em both to put Cal up 60-57.
But then, Malcolm Lee put up the ball with 0.01 on the clock. The buzzer goes up, and then in the ball goes for the three to tie it up and send it into overtime!
You've GOT to be kidding me!
I had texted a friend, that Jorge with only 2 fouls was going to ball in the overtime. And sure enough, he came through for me, started off the overtime with a basket, then a steal followed by a layup. And provided a huge assist to Brandon Smith for three to put Cal up 74-70.
Then, finished the game with two more free throws, finishing with 34 points!
What a great win for Cal!
