Cal Shows Flashes Of Dominance In 77-62 Win Against Louisville

March 20, 2010

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -Jerome Randle and Theo Robertson scored 21 points apiece and eighth-seeded California squandered most of a seemingly comfortable lead before pulling away to 77-62 victory over ninth-seeded Louisville on Friday night in the first round of the NCAA tournament.

The Golden Bears (24-10), who played without suspended starting forward Omondi Amoke, advanced to the second round Sunday against top-seeded Duke, a 73-44 winner over 16th-seeded Arkansas-Pine Bluff on Friday night.

Cal led by as many as 18 points in the first half. Louisville trimmed the deficit to 62-58 with just over 7 minutes to go, but Robertson's 3-pointer steadied the Golden Bears and the Pac-10 champions were able to finish the job with 7-for-7 free throw shooting over the final 6 minutes.

Cal closed the game on a 15-4 run.
