The Golden Bears have been tough to figure out all season. They alternately are an offensive juggernaut (40.1 ppg in their eight victories) or they can do virtually nothing right (7.5 ppg in their four losses). In fact, they've played only two games that were decided by less than eight points. They either win easily (average margin 21.5 ppg) or lose miserably (average margin 28.8 ppg).
