VIDEO: Busy Week for Rabb
SAN LEANDRO, Calif. -- 2015 five-star forward Ivan Rabb's line from Tuesday night's massive win over San Leandro wasn't entirely impressive – just nine points, five rebounds, two blocks and two assists – but, then again, it didn't have to be. Oakland (Calif.) Bishop O'Dowd won by more than 40 points against the overmatched Pirates, and Rabb didn't even play the fourth quarter, but in the time he was in, Rabb was typically dominant.
"We just try to do our job and get up early, so the other players can play," Rabb said. "They did a good job today of coming in and knocking down shots, playing together. We just wanted to do our job, and we ended up winning big."
Rabb – who recently named a top 12 of Arizona, California, UCLA, Duke, Georgetown, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisville, North Carolina, NC State, Ohio State and USC – said he's not focused at all on recruiting, but on the Dragons' upcoming playoff run and their season finale against Castro Valley, on Feb. 28.
"We're focused on this next game, because it's a big rivalry game," Rabb said. "We're focused on that, getting better and staying healthy, and I've got a test tomorrow, so I'm going home and studying. I want to focus on my school, and when playoffs come, we'll be prepared, because I'm going to crush that one and do a good job."
After Rabb crushes his US History test on Wednesday, he'll head straight to Berkeley to watch as the Golden Bears face off with UCLA, which had head coach Steve Alford in attendance on Tuesday night.
"It's a big game," said Rabb, who was on the floor taking apart Sacramento when Cal upset No. 1 Arizona.
Rabb said that the Bears and Bruins have been talking to him the most, recently, and the Bears actually left him a message during his game on Tuesday.
"UCLA comes down a lot for me, and Cal, I'm in contact with them, and they actually both called me today," Rabb said. "Cal called me during my game, so I'm going to reach back and call them back. I talk to them a lot. If not the head coach, then the assistant coaches at least send me a text message here and they. They always try to stay in the loop."
