Among the many goals that California has this season, beating San Ramon Valley was at the top of the list.
The Grizzlies – ranked seventh in the Bay Area News Group – hadn’t beaten the Wolves since 2018. Earlier in the season, California lost to the Wolves by six points in the championship game of the SRV tournament.
But Friday night, in front of a packed home crowd in San Ramon, California upset the Bay Area News Group’s No. 2 team with a 62-58 win in East Bay Athletic League play.
California improved to 14-4 overall and 2-0 in league play.
Kellen Torrey (21 points), Amari Gray (19 points) and Adam Zalami (11 points) scored in double figures for California.
“We’re going to treat each league game as if it were a championship game,” California coach Steve Ohlmeyer said. “We have to prepare for it that way. Mentally, physically and everything else, because that’s what you have to do in this league.”
Will Ambige scored 13 points and Danny Drucker had 11 points for San Ramon Valley, which fell to 15-3, 0-2.
