Bear Down on the Cal Bears Women's Basketball Team

Come out to the Haas Pavilion to see Cal Bears women's basketball team make another run for the Final Four. After firmly establishing the Bears as a PAC-12 powerhouse in just three years, head coach Lindsay Gottlieb looks to lead her players to the top of the conference and beyond. She'll have plenty of help on court as point guard Brittany Boyd dishes it out to lead scorers Reshanda Gray and Afure Jemerigbe, while they get plenty of help on the boards from forwards Courtney Range and Gennifer Brandon. The ball may go to the big scorers, but they know it's a team effort, especially on defense. It's all about the march to the month of March, where anything can happen at the NCAAs.

History of Team

Cal Bears women's basketball team started inauspiciously enough with the advent of Title IX and a perfectly even 5-5 record for 1973-1974 under coach Debbie Gebhardt. More coaching changes followed until 1979, when Gooch Foster started her run as the longest serving coach in team history. Compiling a total of 279 wins to 222 losses over 17 seasons, Foster led the Bears to their first NCAA postseason berth in 1990 and two more in 1992 and 1993. After Foster left, the team suffered a decade-long postseason drought until another NCAA berth in 2006. Under coach Joanna Boyle, they made three more NCAA appearances and won the WNIT in 2010 before handing over the reigns to Lindsay Gottlieb in 2011. Gottlieb swiftly built on that winning tradition, reaching the NCAA second round in her first year and the Final Four the year after. After 40 years of ups and downs, the golden age for Cal Bears women's basketball team has clearly arrived.

Trivia

In its history, Cal has had eight women go on to sign with the WNBA, including 2012-2013 star Layshia Clarendon, who was drafted ninth by the Indiana Fever. Playing too early for the WNBA, late '70s star Colleen Galloway remains Cal's all-time leading scorer and is the only women's player with her jersey (number 13) retired. The current team is no stranger to social media, as head coach Gottlieb can often be seen bantering on Twitter, and the team even has its own website at thisiscalbasketball.com, where webisodes and other player-made videos are featured. As for celebrity sightseeing, best-selling "Moneyball" author Michael Lewis is a fan and can occasionally be seen attending home games at Haas Pavilion. Cal is getting so big these days that they can't be contained in the United States alone. Coach Gottlieb had them travel to China on a three-city tour in August 2013 for some team bonding and a little international outreach. Maybe the Olympics are in Gottlieb's future. She's already racked up several coaching honors, including 2013's PAC-12 Coach of the Year and was named a Naismith National Coach of the Year Finalist for 2013 as well.

Spectator Experience

Haas Pavilion is a great venue for basketball. It seats a maximum of just over 10,000 but is intimate enough to give fans amazing sight lines. When the fans are into it, it's gonna get loud. If you're buying Cal Bears women's basketball tickets, you'll definitely see fans' enthusiasm matched by the team's uptempo style of play and intense, team-oriented defense. It's everything college basketball should be. It's fast, exciting and has an atmosphere you can't substitute, even with the biggest big-screen TV.
