Cal point guard Tyrone Wallace injures hand in practice
SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) California point guard Tyrone Wallace injured his right hand in practice two days before the Golden Bears were set to open play in the NCAA Tournament.
A Cal spokesman said Wednesday night that Wallace is being evaluated and that more information will be available Thursday. The 23rd-ranked Bears (23-10) take on Hawaii in the first round of the tournament on Friday in Spokane.
Wallace is averaging a team-high 15.3 points and 4.4 assists per game, along with 5.4 rebounds. The senior missed five games earlier this season with a broken right hand.
Wallace is coming off one of his best games of the season when he scored 26 points in a loss to Utah in the Pac-12 semifinals last week.
