  • With a game-high 19 points, Allen Crabbe moved into Cal's top 10 in single-season scoring. He is now ninth with 599 points.

  • Robert Thurman scored 12 points (6-6 FG, all dunks) and reached double digits for the first time since tallying 14 points against UC Santa Barbara on Dec. 18.
  • With his first-half three-pointer, Allen Crabbe moved up to a tie for 7th on Cal's season list (62). He holds three of the top seven positions, also making 83 (2nd) last year and 62 (T7th) as a freshman in 2011.
