Osage falls at California

California jumped out to a quick 17-5 lead after the first quarter, holding Osage to just five free throws, and led 35-15 at the break.
"This was a tough first game back after such a long layoff from practices and competition. California was knocking down 3-pointers at a very high rate in the first quarter," Osage coach Scott Rowland noted. "Their defensive pressure was just too much for us."

"It was a tough game all around but we have to shake it off and get prepared for a rivalry game against a very good Eldon squad on Monday," Rowland said.
