The Cal Bears men’s basketball team got off to a good start to their 2012-2013 season, easily handling the Cal State Bakersfield Roadrunners 78-65 at Haas Pavilion.
Allan Crabbe had 27 points and Justin Cobbs had 22 to lead the way for the Bears, who were never really challenged throughout the game.
Here’s more from AP:
Crabbe, Cal’s leading scorer and rebounder in 2011, had 20 points before halftime then gave the crowd at Haas Pavilion a brief scare after injuring his left ankle with 1:27 left while positioning for a rebound. Crabbe returned for the second half and fed David Kravish for an alley-oop dunk that helped push the Bears’ lead to 57-35.
Stephon Carter had 15 points and eight rebounds while Brandon Barnes scored 12 for Bakersfield.
The Bears’ next game will be against Pepperdine University on Tuesday at home.
