Location: Berkeley, California
Record: 22-10 (11-7)
Leading scorers: Jerome Randle (18.4 ppg); Patrick Christopher (14.6 ppg); Theo Robertson (12.8 ppg)
What to know:
- Here they are -- the most dangerous three point team in the country. Always love that stat in the context of the NCAA Tournament. Their top three scoreres in Randle, Christopher and Robertson all shoot at least 38 percent.
- The Golden Bears are 6-8 away from Haas Pavilion.
- Quietly, this team had a nice non-conference schedule, with wins over UNLV, Utah, and losses to Missouri and Florida State. In conference they swept Washington and Arizona.
- While 4-5 is games decided by five points or less isn't spectacular, the amount of those close games shows they've been placed in tight games all season.
Projected performance: One and done. I like their depth over Maryland's, but that should be a great first round game in Kansas City.
