    So, with 3 matches remaining where they're probably the favorites, the Buffs start the hunt to equal their program best 11-9 Pac 12 conference record last year (they're 8-9) right now with a match in Berkeley this evening. Although Cal's having an off year, they played the Buffs VERY tough in Boulder a few weeks ago, so the Buffs had better bring their "A game" tonight on the road.

    Re Cal (From the weekend's preview article (http://www.cubuffs.com/ViewArticle.dbml?DB_OEM_ID=600&ATCLID=210510495) written a few days ago)-

    "
    Cal enters the weekend with a 9-18 overall record. The Bears are tied for 10th in the Pac-12 with a 3-13 record. The Buffs defeated Cal 3-1 (25-22, 36-34, 17-25, 25-17) in Boulder earlier this season. The all-time series is tied 5-5 as CU has taken the last four straight contests against the Bears.
    "
    Note- after the above was written, Cal lost a tough 5 setter to Utah Thursday evening.

    Phew- Buffs can't close it out immediately after holding a 24-21 lead, but survive a set point against and get the 1st set 27-25.

    Yep. Don't want to give Cal hope. (They look better to me than their record, but look sometimes like they're expecting something to go wrong.)

    Also, with a short week til end of conference season matches (Wednesday and Friday), nice if they can stay as fresh as possible.

    Was fun to watch this one. Was talking on phone with a friend who wasn't watching. I should be at Senior Day, if the flight gods are looking out for me.
