Tony Avelar/APCoach Sonny Dykes has plenty to work on with his team during spring practice after Cal went 1-11 last season.

Cobbs injured as Cal rolls past Denver

Tyrone Wallace scored 16 points and David Kravish 15 in leading Cal to a 77-50 victory over Denver on Tuesday night.

Richard Solomon had 16 rebounds, nine points and two blocks for the Bears (2-0).

Cal senior point guard Justin Cobbs scored 10 points and had six assists but left the game with 8:27 remaining after suffering an apparent injury to his left leg. Cobbs, trying to block a shot, landed awkwardly on Denver’s Cam Griffin. After being examined by Cal’s medical staff, Cobbs limped off the floor and to the locker room.

Griffin led the Pioneers (0-1) with 15 points, and Marcus Byrd added 10. Chris Udofia and Brett Olson scored eight points apiece. Cal improved to 5-0 in the series and beat Denver for the third straight season.

Kravish shot 7 for 12 from the field, mostly around the basket, while Wallace went 5 for 10.

ST. MARY’S 85, AKRON 63

Brad Waldow scored 16 points, James Walker III added 15, and St. Mary’s beat Akron in the wee hours of the night. Stephen Holt scored 14 points, shooting 12-for-12 on free throws, and Jordan Giusti had a career-high 12 points for the Gaels (2-0) in a game that started at midnight in Moraga and ended at 2:14 a.m. as part of ESPN’s college hoops tip-off marathon.
