CBE Classic: Cal Basketball Uses 31-4 Run To Dominate Georgia, Cruises 70-46

The California Golden Bears and the Georgia Bulldogs seemed like they were going to be in a fight early. Cal seemed to struggle to get their footing as the team struggled to convert their opportunities in the paint and turned the ball over on too many occasions. Cal was also struggling to get their talented sophomores Allen Crabbe and Richard Solomon going, and it looked as if Cal would be dogfighting it all night long.

But Cal's defense remained constant. And they eventually wore down Georgia's attack and it powered them to victory. The Golden Bears turned a 25-22 deficit into a 36-25 lead before halftime, then opened it up to 53-29. Georgia shot 33% from the field and 21% from behind the arc; Cal shot 50% and hit six of eleven threes, and outrebounded Georgia 34-27 and enjoyed a huge advantage at the free throw line.

Seniors Jorge Gutierrez and Harper Kamp were rock solid offensively. Kamp hit all six of his shots and put in 16 points to lead all scorers. Gutierrez utilized a lot of baseline and midrange jumpers to make his way to 14 points and seven rebounds. Justin Cobbs had ten points and five assists off the bench. Crabbe had three threes and six rebounds and Richard Solomon put in seven boards. Freshman David Kravish returned to the Midwest (he went to high school only miles away from the Sprint Center) and had an excellent performance with six points, eight rebounds and two blocks.
