The Cal men's basketball team has added a second neutral-site game to its 2002-03 docket by joining the field for the 2002 John R. Wooden Classic.

The Bears will face Georgia as part of a doubleheader to take place Dec. 7 at the Arrowhead Pond in Anaheim, Calif. Like Cal, the Bulldogs are in this year's NCAA Tournament.

USC takes on Missouri in the other game, which also features two NCAA Tournament teams.

Earlier this week, Cal added the Pete Newell Challenge in Oakland to its schedule.

The last time the Bears and Georgia played was in the 2000 Newell Challenge. Cal won the game, 85-64.

The Wooden Classic was established in 1994 in honor of legendary UCLA coach John Wooden.

Tennis Preps for Southern Methodist

The No. 10 Cal men's tennis team looks to extend its winning streak to six when it takes on Southern Methodist tomorrow in Indian Wells, Calif. The match is part of the Pacific Life Open.

Last weekend, the Bears (9-3) swept the Arizona schools at Hellman Tennis Center.

Cal had little trouble with the Wildcats and Sun Devils, defeating both 6-1.

Neither Arizona or Arizona State should feel bad about their respective fates. Cal has been on a tear.,winning seven of its last eight in dual match play.

The Mustangs (6-8) are led by Krystian Pheiffer at the No. 1 singles court with an 8-3 mark.

The Bears counter with John Paul Fruttero, who has posted eight wins in singles play, going 8-2.
