    Having lost three straight games entering Saturday’s home game against No. 1 Arizona, California had an opportunity to not only grab a resume-building victory but also right the ship ahead of the stretch run. And the Golden Bears did just that, with Justin Cobbs’ fadeaway with nine tenths of a second remaining giving Cal the…

    Without two key contributors in Jabari Bird and Ricky Kreklow, California was shorthanded entering its game at rival Stanford on Thursday night. But instead of worrying about what they were lacking the Golden Bears simply competed, and with three mainstays leading the way Mike Montgomery’s team picked up a much-needed 69-62 win.

    With Ricky Kreklow out after breaking his right hand California entered Sunday night’s game at Creighton shorthanded, and things would get even worse in their 68-54 loss to the Bluejays.

    Expectations were high heading into the 2013-14 season for the University of Denver.

    Credit Mike Montgomery and Cal for heading to southern California to play at UC Santa Barbara. It’s not too often that a program from a BCS conference travels to play at the gym of a mid-major team, but the Golden Bears did that tonight. Montgomery probably regrets it as Cal lost to UCSB, 72-65. While…
