BERKELEY, Calif. – The Rams were unable to overcome a quick-transitioning Cal Bears team in the first round of the Colliers International Classic Saturday. They fell 78-44 and will play the loser of No. 7/10 Texas A&M and Southern Illinois Sunday at 1 p.m. MT.
The Rams were able to keep up with the No. 19/20 Cal team in the first half. Kim Mestdagh sunk a three-pointer right before the buzzer and the Rams went into the locker down by nine.
With every basket made for the Rams, the Bears seemed to have an answer. California then began to pull away when the Rams were unable to score. CSU shot at a 26.1 percent clip from the floor compared to Cal’s 49.3 percent.
Stellar defense by Rams freshman Chantel Kennedy in the second half came all but too late for Colorado State. She set career highs with four offensive boards and six rebounds total. Sophomore Meghan Heimstra picked up her fourth double-double on the season with 11 points and 11 rebounds.
“There were a lot of positives in this game,” said Head Coach Kristen Holt. “We’re going to have to improve on a lot of other things for a quick turnaround tomorrow.”
