Cal game thread

HUSKIES HANG ON — Huskies get a big win here to assure they will not finish the regular season with a losing record. UW is now 3-5 in Pac-10 road games. Final is UW 87, Cal 84. More later.
HELPS HAVING TWO THREE-POINT SHOOTERS — UW has made nine three-pointers, which is their second-most in Pac-10 play other than the 13 against Oregon State when Appleby made nine by himself. Wolfinger has four and Appleby four.
GAME SLOWS TO A CRAWL — Suddenly, after all that scoring, neither team can hit a bucket. At the 3:42 mark, neither team has scored in the last three-and-a-half minutes.
CAREER-HIGH FOR WOLFINGER —- He has 14 points, besting the 12 he had at Stanford the other night. He’s hit 10-15 shots in the two games (5-5 today) and 5-9 three-pointers (3-3 today).
UW UP 63-57 WITH 11:50 TO PLAY — A lot of weird numbers in this one so far and the strangest may be Brockman with just two rebounds. He’s still on the bench with four fouls having picked up two offensive fouls in the opening four minutes of the second half.
UW PILING UP THE FOULS — Huskies drew their ninth foul of the second half with more than 14 minutes to go, and fouls and free throws loom large in this one.
BROCKMAN OUT WITH FOUR FOULS — At the 16:07 mark. UW will have to get some quality minutes out of MBA and Wolfinger now. Each played well in the first half, with MBA playing good defense to help hold Ryan Anderson to just four points and only three shots. But Anderson looks more aggressive to start the second half with four points already.
UW JUST ONE TURNOVER IN FIRST HALF — Which was also a huge key to the 49 points at halftime. But UW already has three to start the second half.
UW UP 49-44 AT HALFTIME — This was old-time UW basketball in the first half as the Huskies scored 49 points, including 16 in the last 4:16. After a little drought early, UW has hit 20-37 shots, including 6-8 three-pointers. It’s the most points UW has had at the half all year, topping the 48 at Oregon State two weeks ago.
Bad news is Cal has been almost as hot, hitting 15-28 shots to stay in it.
HUSKIES FIGHT BACK — Cal led this one 22-15 and it looked like the Huskies were on their way to one of their fallback games. But then the Huskies came back, going on an 18-5 run to take the lead. Appleby hit a long three and Dentmon had five points. It’s nonw 35-29 UW with 3:30 left in the first half.
CAL OUTBOARDING HUSKIES EARLY — Bears have a 15-8 edge with nine minutes to go in the first half, which may be a bad omen for UW.
CHRISTOPHER LABORING — Patrick Christopher is trying to play for Cal but he seems noticably slowed with his hip injury suffered Thursday night. He was guarding Quincy Pondexter and QP called for the ball a few times but was only able to get off one shot against him so far, which he missed.
CAL SHOOTING WELL EARLY — Bears are 5-9 and have a 10-8 lead at the first time out.
HAWES IN THE HOUSE — Among those sitting in the UW section behind the Husky bench is Spencer Hawes, now plying his trade in nearby Sacramento.
SIVA HASN’T COMMITTED ANYWHERE — One of you asked about a report in another paper that Franklin’s Peyton Siva has committed to play Louisville. Simply put, he hasn’t. In fact, as we reported earlier this week, Siva has added Texas to the list if schools he is considering, and the Longhorns are thought to be a serious player in this.
THOMAS, BRESHERS SEASONS OVER — Start the game thread with news on two future Huskies.
First, Tyreese Breshers and Price High were hammered by Jrue Holiday and Campbell Hall in a sectional final game today. Read about it here.
Second, Isaiah Thomas and South Kent were beaten handily last night by Brewster Academy.
