The Cal men's basketball team scored just five points in the first half in an ugly 57-44 loss to Notre Dame on Friday in the Old Spice Classic in Lake Buena Vista, Fla.
Cal coach Mike Montgomery was so furious with his team's first-half play that he scolded his players in the locker room.
"It was like the bully at lunchtime out on the playground," said Montgomery, whose team nearly matched the record for fewest points in a half since the shot-clock era began in 1986. Kansas State held Savannah State to four points in 2008.
Cal will play Boston College in a consolation game Sunday.
The Irish (6-0) took a 21-5 lead in a sloppy first half and held off the Golden Bears (3-1). Notre Dame will play Wisconsin in the final Sunday.
Cal turned the ball over repeatedly in the first half, also going 2 for 25 from the floor before the break, including 0 for 8 on 3-pointers. The teams combined for 16 turnovers and 26 points in the first half.
The Golden Bears trimmed the deficit to 10 late but never mounted a serious threat.
