It's almost one month until the NBA draft and it's unclear where Cal's big three will end up. Let's take a look at how they rank in the experts' projections.
The NBA Combine began this weekend in Chicago and Fran Fraschilla listed Randle among the top-five players not invited who could still make it in the NBA. He praises Randle's speed and seemingly infinite range, and says his tempo-changing quickness may help teams overlook his height.
Jay Bilas lists Randle at 60th in his top-100 NBA Draft prospects. Patrick Christopher comes in at 66th on the list.
Aran Smith of NBADraft.net calls Theo Robertson Cal's best prospect. Theo is 77th in his list of top-100 prospects. Randle is 87th and PC barely makes the cut at 100th.
After the jump Scout and ESPN praise Cal's bball recruiting class, men's golf advances to the NCAA Championships, and softball advances in the NCAA tournament while baseball puts its postseason hopes in jeopardy.
- Cal's recruiting class has risen to 21st in Scout.com's ratings. Cal is third in the Pac-10 behind Stanford (15) and UCLA (16). ESPN rates Cal's class at 24th. Again, Cal is third in the conference behind UCLA (15) and Stanford (18).
- Jolene Henderson's perfect game led softball past Bucknell in a 10-0 victory in the opening round of the NCAA tournament. The Bears posted another shutout as they defeated Ohio St 7-0. Cal advances to the Super Regional where they'll play Georgia in a three-game series.
- Men's golf advanced to the NCAA Championships for the first time since 2004 (when they won the national title).
- Baseball led 7-5 over UCLA at the top of the ninth inning, but the Bruins managed to score three runs to take an 8-7 win. Seven runs in the last two innings led UCLA to a 12-4 win over Cal. UCLA completed the sweep on Sunday with an 11-2 win. Cal has now lost seven in a row and 11 of its last 15 games.
