Arizona State 30, Cal 29 at halftime

BERKELEY, Calif. -- If Arizona State is going to ruin Senior Day at Cal and take first place in the Pac-10, it's getting off to a great start.

Derek Glasser and Ty Abbott are doing an excellent job defending the perimeter and pestering Cal's Jerome Randle, who made only one of his first six field goal attempts.

Those 3-pointers from way downtown just aren't there right now.

But Randle, always difficult to stop, scored Cal's final five points of the half to cut the Sun Devil lead to a point.

He has seven on the game after getting emotional during Senior Day ceremonies, and for good reason. Check out Andy Katz's feature on the diminutive guard from Chicago.

Two other Bears seniors, Patrick Christopher and Theo Robertson, have seven points apiece as well.

The Sun Devils were led by Jerren Shipp, who had 10 points off the bench. Shipp's brother, Joe, starred at Cal, a program that desperately wants what would be a historic win.
