Randle Hits Eight 3-Pointers To Help Beat Arizona 83-77

March 5, 2009

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP)--Jerome Randle made 8-of-11 3-pointers, 6-of-7 in the second half, for a career-high 29 points Thursday and California spoiled a night honoring Hall of Fame ex-coach Lute Olson with a 83-77 victory over Arizona.

The Bears (22-8, 11-6 Pac-10), the top 3-point shooting team in the nation, made a season-high 16 3s in 30 attempts to hand the Wildcats a loss that severely damages Arizona's hopes for a 25th consecutive NCAA tournament berth.

Chase Budinger scored a season-high 28 and Jordan Hill 24 for Arizona (18-12, 8-9) in the Wildcats' first loss at home to Cal since 1995.

Theo Robertson added 24 points for the Bears.
