BERKELEY, Calif. -- Allan Crabbe scored 24 of his career-high 33 points in the second half, and California overcame another rough rebounding game to beat Pepperdine 79-62 on Tuesday night.
The Golden Bears (2-0) never trailed but didn't pull away from the pesky Waves until a 14-4 run after halftime in the second meeting ever between the two teams. Crabbe, Cal's leading scorer and rebounder a year ago, had seven points in that stretch.
Justin Cobbs added 23 points, five assists and five rebounds for the Bears. In both games this season, Crabbe and Cobbs have led Cal in scoring while no other player has reached double figures.
Charles Matthews, who spent his freshman season at Kentucky, has picked Michigan as his transfer school, according to a source.
Chad Ford and Jeff Goodman offer their opinions on the surprises they're expecting at the NBA draft, with Ford believing there will be a lot of trade activity while Goodman thinks people will be surprised by potential draft spot of Marquese Chriss.
Louisville coach Rick Pitino said he doesn't "have time to figure out what" Kentucky coach John Calipari meant in recent comments that appeared to be a jab at the Cardinals' program.
