BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) - Mike Montgomery is getting rather used to losing his leading scorer, then finding a reliable replacement or two to carry the load as California continues winning year after year.
This time around, the Golden Bears lost Pac-12 Player of the Year Allen Crabbe, who is now playing for the Portland Trail Blazers.
With added depth in the backcourt to complement senior point guard Justin Cobbs, Montgomery is confident Cal will have a more balanced offensive attack as it looks to return to the NCAA tournament. The Bears have played in the NCAAs in three of the past four seasons but haven't advanced to the round of 16.
