The California Golden Bears snuck out of the Magness Arena with a win over Denver on Friday night, coming out on top by a score of 72-61. The Bears are now 3-0 this season, and DU falls to 1-2.
Allen Crabbe led the way for Cal yet again. The junior wing had 20 points, eight rebounds and two assists. If there was a downside to Crabbe's night, he turned the ball over four times. That will need to improve once the competition improves for the Bears. Point guard Justin Cobbs had a nice night with 17 points. David Kravish recorded a double-double with 11 points and 12 rebounds.
As a team, California shot 51 percent from the field despite going 2 for 7 from behind the arc.
