BERKELEY, Calif. -- It's Senior Day for Jerome Randle, Jamal Boykin, Patrick Christopher and Theo Robertson as a veteran Cal lineup has a chance to end their careers at Haas Pavilion with at least a share of the school's first regular season title in 50 years.
The storyline is there, but will the fans show?
Here's how public address announcer Eddy Kleinhans described the Cal student section in Saturday's student newspaper, the Daily Cal:
The student section is nearly empty through tip-off and our ops crew invites fans to come sit in the student section. Really? Even though we've sold almost 1,500 student tickets, we can't fill-up a 1,200 seat student section for a team that's trying to win Cal's first Pac-10 crown in 50 years? Students, where are you?
But it looks like today will feature a packed house against Arizona State. As of yesterday, the game was actually nearing a sellout.
So yeah, it's as big of a game as it can get in the Pac-10.
UPDATE: The game is indeed sold out, according to a Cal spokesman.
