Cal, which has tied for second place in the Pac-12 each of the last two seasons, is the only team in the league to have finished in the top four and win at least 10 conference games each of the last five seasons. The Golden Bears are coming off their winningest five-year stretch in more than 50 years with 109 total victories over the span.
The Bears return 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 back for sixth-year Golden Bear head coach Mike Montgomery. 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. He was Cal’s second-leading scorer last season with a 15.1 ppg. average.
In all, Cal returns 61 percent of its scoring and five of its top seven scorers along with its top-two rebounders and shot blockers from last season.
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.
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.
