The Bears improve to 4-0 heading into Tuesday night’s title game vs. No. 21 Missouri, which will be a much better opponent. Tipoff is 7 p.m. on ESPN2.
Kamp had 16 points, Gutierrez 14 points and seven rebounds, Cobbs 10 points and five assists and Kravish six points, nine rebounds and three blocks in his homecoming to Kansas City. Cal had only two turnovers in the first 17 minutes of the second half, was the stronger team inside and on the perimeter and really showed its experience edge against a young Georgia (3-1) team.
4:16 2nd H: Cal leads 67-38. Montgomery has gotten many of his regulars out of the game. Gutierrez and Kamp have rested for a long spell. Could pay dividends Tuesday night against Missouri.

7:50 2nd H: Crabbe nails a 3-pointer and Cal leads 61-35. Brandon Smith also has hit a jumper and a 3-pointer against Georgia’s zone. Cal has extended the lead with Gutierrez and Kamp on the bench for a few minutes.
