A few things from the post-game:
– Mike Montgomery said center Markhuri Sanders-Frison, who was going to join the team on Friday after skipping the ASU game because of ongoing back issues, won’t make the trip to Arizona, after all. Just doesn’t make sense, Monty said. He hasn’t practiced, and they want him to stay home so he can, hopefully, get healthy for next week’s trip to L.A.
– Forward Omondi Amoke, who played just 10 minutes and was scoreless, was sick, Montgomery said, adding that missed his energy.
– Cal had three players — Randle, Chistopher and Boykin — each score 20 points or more. No one was sure the last time that happened, but it hasn’t been done dating back at least through the start of the 2007-08 season.
– Cal was 14-for-14 from the FT line.
– Among the five teams that entered play on Thursday tied for second, only Arizona won. The Wildcats will be sole owners of second place Sunday when the first-place Bears visit.
