California cruises; Montgomery wins 600th game

BERKELEY, Calif. — Freshman Allen Crabbe scored 17 points on a career-high five 3-pointers, Harper Kamp had 19 points and nine rebounds and California beat Hartford 74-56 on Tuesday night to give coach Mike Montgomery his 600th career victory.

Richard Solomon added 10 points, 10 rebounds and three blocks for the Golden Bears (7-5), who led by 25 in the first meeting between the schools.

Montgomery, in his third season at Cal, became the seventh active coach in Division I to reach the milestone victory. He was subdued after the win, walking behind the bench to slap hands with his wife and daughter before exiting the court with his players.

Genesis Maciel and Joe Zeglinski scored 11 points apiece for Hartford (2-9), which dropped its fourth straight under first-year coach John Gallagher.
