CBE Classic: Cal Beats GWU 81-54 Behind Allen Crabbe, Jorge Gutierrez, Justin Cobbs

The California Golden Bears tipped off their portion of the CBE Classic in impressive fashion when they faced the George Washington Colonials, as they rode a late first half run to a smooth victory on Saturday.

GWU did give Cal early headaches as the Bears struggled with fouls and garnering rebounds, taking a 19-18 lead with around six minutes left in the first half. Cal then rolled on a 21-0 run, powered by eight points by Justin Cobbs and five points from Allen Crabbe. Crabbe then scored another eight points early in the second half, as the Bears led by as many as 28 points in this contest.

Crabbe finished with 21 points (15 of his points coming off five three point shots) and five rebounds. Cobbs put in 16 points, with eight coming at the free throw line. Jorge Gutierrez added 15 points, five assists, four rebounds and two steals in support. Cal's defense was the big constant, as George Washington shot 29.6% from the field in the first half and 37.9% from the field throughout the game.

Cal moves on to face Austin Peay on Tuesday night in their next CBE Classic matchup.
