The California Golden Bears dominated their archrival Stanford Cardinal in their final home game at Haas Pavilion, leading for double digits most of the way and cruising to a 74-55 victory. Cal was led by Allen Crabbe, who had 24 points, nine rebounds and 5 assists; Harper Kamp had 20 points and Markhuri Sanders-Frison put up 13 points and 13 rebounds (six offensive) on Senior Day, making this Sanders-Frison’s final performance in front of the Cal faithful. Jorge Gutierrez added eight points, seven assists and four steals, and Richard Solomon chipped in six points in support.
With this performance, Cal improved to 10-8 in the Pac-10 and 17-13 after one of the most brutal schedules any major conference team has had to face. The Bears ended up locked into the #4/#5 game in the Pac-10 Tournament when Washington St. lost to UCLA, ensuring they’d play the USC Trojans in Staples Center Thursday at noon.
