Not much of a pre-holiday trip to the Midwest for the Golden Bears.
Cal was routed 68-54 by Creighton at Omaha, but the impact going forward could be worse.
Junior guard Ricky Kreklow broke his right hand, Cal announced before the game, and will miss 4 to 6 weeks.
Freshman guard Jabari Bird injured his right ankle or foot with 5:02 left in the first half and was wearing a protective boot on the bench for the second half.
Cal reported afterward that Bird sustained an ankle sprain. There is no timetable yet for his return. Cal plays once more before the start of Pac-12 play, at home Saturday against Furman.
And senior forward Richard Solomon limped off the court with 3:39 left and watched the rest of the game from the sideline.
The Bears (8-4) failed to threaten the Bluejays (9-2), who got 20 points and 11 rebounds from All-American Doug McDermott and won easily. Creighton scored the final eight points of the first half for a 30-19 lead, then extended that to 20 points early in the second half.
Justin Cobbs scored 13 points to lead the Bears, but made just 2 of his first 8 shots. Tyrone Wallace added 12 points on 4 for 12 from the field, and David Kravish had 11 points.
Cal shot just 33 percent in the first half, 36.4 percent for the game.
