The Golden Bears suffered a big blow with Tyrone Wallace suffering a broken hand in practice. Wallace has led the team in minutes, scoring, assists and steals this season. Now Cal has to regroup and play in a big setting despite being 0-4-1 against the spread in its last 5 on a neutral floor. Hawaii comes in 7-3 ATS in their last 10 non-conference games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 on a neutral floor.
