Basketball: Saturday night wrap

Cal’s big win over New Mexico salvaged what could have been another brutal day in the Pac-10.

Here’s a look at the rest of it . . .

— Arizona State: The Sun Devils (1-1) got 19 points from Trent Lockett and 15 and the game-winning 3-pointer from Ty Abbott to beat UAB 69-66 in Tempe. ASU won despite shooting 3 for 17 from 3-point and getting outrebounded 32-25.

— Oregon: The Ducks (3-1) lost 75-72 at home to a San Jose State team that hadn’t beaten a Pac-10 opponent since 1992. Senior Joevan Catron scored 25 points, but Oregon committed 17 turnovers and was outrebounded 42-33. Point guard Malcolm Armstead had a game to forget: 1 for 10 shooting with six turnovers.

— USC: The Trojans (2-2) lost 64-63 to Bradley at the Tip-Off Classic in Springfield, Mass. All-conference forward Nikola Vucevic had 22 points and 15 rebounds, but didn’t get enough help. Guard Maurice Jones shot 0 for 10 and was scoreless.

    Hoorah for Cal Basketball. What a great coach Monty is. He knows how to use his freshman players to their potential…play good solid D and score points in transistion. Maybe we should start thinking about paying Monty the same amount as Tedfurd. At least Monty doesnt get blown out against tough opponents and games and you know Monty coaching is SO MUCH MORE EFFECTIVE than Tedfurd. Tedfurd should get a paycut for these really ridiculous embarrassing losses. Tedfurd is just not a good coach period. He has lost the players respect at this point I bet.

    Nice post Tc. I don’t like Montgomery b/c he’s a Stanfurd guy and I will never get over that. But damn he’s a good coach. He could take my high school’s current team and make them compete for the Pac-10.

    If Sandy decides to overpay him too she’ll blow it.

    Let’s enjoy bball and hope Tedford fixes things next year. Because boy oh boy have the past few football years been tough. Muy tough.

    No, Tedford has NOT lost the player’s respect, you know not what what you speak of.

    Let’s keep the basketball threads about basketball and keep the football talk in the football threads, come on guys.

    Go Cal Basketball, GO BEARS
