Healing and Growing

By Bob Holtzman - November 01, 2007

LOS ANGELES -- There's a date on California coach Ben Braun's calendar and it could be seen as an early Christmas gift.

Jamal Boykin, a former Parade All-American from Fairfax High School in Los Angeles, will be eligible to play for the Bears on Dec. 21. Boykin transferred to Berkeley after starting his college career at Duke.

Adding the 6-foot-8 Boykin gives Cal another post player, which is expected to be the team's strength.

"We were the smallest team in the league last year and now we're probably the biggest team in the league," Braun said.

On the flip side, Cal does have some injury problems to deal with, including the Bears' most experience player Theo Robertson, who is recovering from hip surgery.

"We hope he can play by the Pac-10 because he's a very valuable part of our team."
