Cal Bird no look Cal win NIT first round over Utah Valley
By Greg Bridges

Berleley, Calif.  3/21/14 -- The California Golden Bears opened play in the 2014 National Invitational Tournament with a solid 77-64 victory over the Utah Valley Wolverines despite missing the impact of one of their most consistent players, 6ʼ10” senior forward Richard Solomon, who was ruled out of tonightʼs game with a concussion.

Filling the void created by Solomonʼs absence long armed 6ʼ9” junior forward David Kravish established a commanding presence for the Golden Bears (20-13), finishing the night with 5 intimidating blocks and 10 rebounds to go along with a team high 14 points on 7-of-9 shooting. After scoring Calʼs 2nd basket of the night Kravish sent the message that there would be no layups as he fouled Utah Valleyʼs Holton Hunsaker while attempting to block the 6-foot guardʼs shot on a drive to the basket.
