Channing Frye had 18 points and eight rebounds. He was effective from long range, which really opened things up for the rest of the team. He also added three blocks.
After Cal took their first lead since the opening minute, Arizona goes on an 11-0 run that seals the game.
Arizona wore their red uniforms for the first time since 2001. That season the Cats were 1-5 in their alternate uniform that season and Lute Olson retired the look. Apparently the team talked Olson into breaking them out this season and so far, so good.
Arizona is now 13-3 in games where Frye scores 20 or more points a game.
ANOTHER GOOD SIGN
The last two games in which Salim Stoudamire has been held to one shot the Wildcats have won. He got off one shot against Utah and had the same struggle against Cal. Both games were announced by Steve Physioc on Fox Sports.
The Cats hold a 44-24 lead in the all time series. They are 20-15 in games played at Berkeley.
HERE'S THE SCORE
Five Wildcats scored in double figures and Matt Brase was the only Wildcat who played that failed to score. He played just two minutes. The Cats shot 54.4%, 60.7% in the decisive second half.
Arizona scored 87 points. The Bears had been allowing just 61.7 points a game but could not control the tempo and had no answer to Arizona's running game.
Arizona has now won nine games in a row.
