BERKELEY – The California men’s basketball team will host an open practice at Haas Pavilion from 3:00 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. (PT) TODAY. The event, which is open to the public and free of charge, will provide fans with their first opportunity to see the 2013-14 Golden Bears as they prepare for the upcoming season.

Fans on campus for Cal’s football game against Oregon State at 7:30 p.m. (PT) or women’s swimming & diving meet at 1:00 p.m. (PT) are encouraged to stop by Haas Pavilion and watch the men’s basketball team’s practice from a spot near the court.

Cal returns four of its five starters from a 21-win team that advanced to the third round of the NCAA Tournament a year ago. Seniors Justin Cobbs and Richard Solomon, junior David Kravish, and sophomore Tyrone Wallace lead an experienced squad that has fans ready for another exciting season in Berkeley. Cobbs, a two-time All-Pac-12 selection, enters the season as the conference’s active career leader in assists with 327 in just two seasons at Cal.

The Bears also welcome a top-20 recruiting class nationally, including McDonald’s All-American Jabari Bird and fellow former scholastic standouts Jordan Mathews, Sam Singer, Kameron Rooks and Roger Moute a Bidias.

Head coach Mike Montgomery begins his sixth season at the helm of the Golden Bears. He has guided Cal to its winningest five-year stretch (109 victories) in more than 50 years. Montgomery enters the 2013-14 season as the NCAA's ninth winningest active Division I head men's basketball coach with 656 career victories in 31 seasons of collegiate coaching. He owns 272 career Pac-12 victories and is just four wins shy of tying Oregon State's Slats Gill as the third-winningest coach in conference history.

Cal will host Humboldt State in an exhibition contest on Thursday, Oct. 31, at 7 p.m. (PT) before opening the regular season against Coppin State on Friday, Nov. 8 at 9 p.m. (PT) in Berkeley in the second game of a double-header with the women’s basketball team.
