California head coach Wyking Jones hollers for a foul call during the first half against the Arizona Wildcats, Jan. 12, 2019, at Haas Pavilion in Berkeley, California.

With Haas Pavilion only about half-full Saturday, Cal did its best to make the place seem loud and crazy.

That is, it pumped in ear-splitting music over the loudspeaker and even turned up the public-address system so high that the voice was nearly distorted. Cal had a band sitting behind a basket, but it wasn’t much of a factor.
