Basketball: Crabbe, Kamp both OK

A bit weary of the questions but to the point, Cal coach Mike Montgomery opened his media session Monday by letting us know sophomore Allen Crabbe and senior Hamp Kamp are both fine, will practice and play this week when the Bears travel to USC and UCLA.

“No injury report. Nothing. I’ve got a full squad today,” Montgomery said.

I spoke briefly with Crabbe, who said his right foot is feeling good. He did not sprain an ankle, but had some soreness in his foot last week, which is gone. “I’m fine,” he said.

Unlike last week, he wore no protective boot, and was walking normally.

Kamp, who jammed or sprained a finger, also is OK.

Both had X-rays Saturday after the Arizona State game, and all was  normal.

Elsewhere . . .

   — A home loss to Arizona and home victory over lowly ASU dropped the Bears from No. 30 last week in the official NCAA RPI rankings to No. 48. Ouch. Next Pac-12 team is Arizona, which rocketed from No. 85 to 62.

   — Arizona senior guard Kyle Fogg, who scored 23 points at Cal and14 at Stanford in a pair of victories, was named Pac-12 Player of the Week,

   — The Pac-12 extended the contract of Commission Larry Scott through 2016, with options to add additional years.

    Something real cool happened this past weekend. One of the kids I coach, whom we took to the Cal / Stanford game last week (courtesy of the athletic department) came up to me and said “hey, Crabbe is hurt right?”.

    Tedford open up practices, or at least some practices so more of these kids can grow up knowing the programs.

    Not sure how many times I’ve had a kid not know Aaron Rodgers went to Cal.

    If a kid doesn’t know Rodgers went to Cal, it’s not because practices weren’t open.

    Montgomery’s practices aren’t open either. So how does this kid know about Crabbe?

  • Juancho

    Yoda, the athletic department gave us tickets to the Stanford / Cal game. That’s how.

    The football program has never donated jack to our programs. I’ll let the kid know your thoughts.
