No. 6 Wichita State trailed by 18 in the second half, but found a way to come back and beat Cal, 92-82, to open the Maui Invitational. Once Cal built the big lead, the Bears played nervous and were completely out of rhythm as a result of the Shockers' full-court press.

Cal is beating Wichita State. Go ahead and name a player on Cal ... In fact, most can't even name the new coach.
