Big blow for Cal

Cal figured to be one of the more intruiging teams in the Pac-10 this season — talented enough to beat anyone on any given night if flawed enough not to run with the elites.
But everything has changed for Cal now with the news today that center DeVon Hardin is out 8 to 12 weeks with a stress fracture in his left foot.
As this story reports, the Bears are also already without center Jordan Wilkes. Given how Washington’s big men are playing, the Bears will have obvious matchup problems when facing the Huskies.
But while the loss of Hardin might make it easier for UW to beat the Bears, I think real fans will lament not being able to watch Hardin and Spencer Hawes go at it when the teams play. Hardin doesn’t figure to be back for either game against UW as the two face off Jan. 13 in Berkeley and Feb. 8 in Seattle.
The Huskies are just wrapping up practice and we’ll have more later from out here.
