Many are off, so it is prolly not going to be a packed DBD, but I did want to get one up, because there is a lot of Cal news to discuss every Monday morning. So, let the romance continue! What did you do for your Valentine's Day?
BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) -California took the court for the second half with an 11-point deficit and their hold on the Pac-10 lead slipping away. Jerome Randle gathered his teammates and delivered a strong message.
Randle scored 24 points and California scored the final 15 points of the game to beat Washington State 86-70 Saturday and remain in first place in the Pac-10.
"The message was this is our championship on the line," Randle said. "We came out a little sluggish. I just wanted everyone to know that if we come out the same as we did in the first half, we're going to lose this game. We have to come out with a little more energy. ... We obviously didn't want this one game to come back and haunt us. We just went out and put it all out there."
The Golden Bears (17-8, 9-4) swept a weekend series for just the second time this season to maintain their lead in the conference and move a step closer to their first Pac-10 title in 50 years.
After rolling past Washington 93-81 on Thursday night, Cal had a much more difficult time against the Cougars (15-10, 5-8), falling behind by double digits early before rallying.
