 Home Games at Haas Pavillion are in bold.

Cal will have one of the toughest non-conference schedules that its ever had, in this decade.

Here is an excerpt from calbears.com about the schedule,

The 2010-11 California men’s basketball schedule features up to eight nonconference opponents that won at least 20 games last season, all of which advanced to the postseason including Kansas, which is making its first visit to Berkeley since 1956, and the Golden Bears have 17 games inside Haas Pavilion, head coach Mike Montgomery announced on Thursday. 

First, the game against Kansas, a perennial basketball powerhouse, will be awesome for the Bears, which don’t usually get to play programs like Kansas. Although Kansas will be a tough opponent for Cal, there are many other good teams that will play the Bears this season.  In conclusion, buy your season tickets now because you don’t want to miss all the great games!
