The view must be nice from the top.

Though nets were cut and confetti fell from the ceiling last week after the Cal men's basketball team topped Arizona State, the Bears had not clinched an outright conference title until they defeated rival Stanford, 71-61, on Saturday at Maples Pavilion. Two days later, senior Jerome Randle was named the Pac-10 Player of the Year, the first Cal player to win the distinguished award since Sean Lampley won it in 2001. Randle is 32 points away from breaking Lampley's school record 1,776.

As for the rest of the sports playing nearby, Kevin Miller put together arguably the best outing by any Cal pitcher this season, silencing an explosive Arkansas offense en route to a 6-0 victory. It was the Bears' only win of the three-game series. Lacrosse defeated Davidson, 14-9, for its first win of the year. Women's basketball fell to the Cardinal basketball juggernaut, 63-48. Even without star player Jayne Appel, Stanford coasted to victory against a youthful Cal squad. 27 of the 28 Cardinal victories this season have been by double digits.

The Cal women's tennis team also struggled with Stanford. The No. 5 Bears were upset, 5-2, at Hellman Tennis Complex. Though the No. 10 men's tennis team didn't play the Cardinal, they also fell to an inferior opponent. Unranked Michigan paced much of the match and defeated the Bears 5-2.
