Bears Finish 5-0 in Italy with 88-75 Win

Aug. 22, 2005

CASALPUSTERLENGO, Italy - Ayinde Ubaka scored 29 points and Leon Powe added 27 points and nine rebounds as California defeated Assigeco, 88-75, Monday to conclude its tour of Italy with a perfect 5-0 record.

The Bears overcame some early shooting woes to defeat what the Cal coaching staff described as 'a well-coached, sharp-shooting Assigeco team.'

In addition to Ubaka and Powe, sophomore center DeVon Hardin added 10 points and six rebounds, while senior center Rod Benson chipped in with four points and 12 boards.

Prior to the game, the team spent its final full day in Italy touring and shopping in Milan, which was much larger than the other cities the team visited earlier on its trip. The Bears, who left for Italy Aug. 12, return to Berkeley on Tuesday.
