SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - California point guard Tyrone Wallace suffered a broken right hand in practice two days before the Golden Bears open play in the NCAA Tournament.

California released a statement Thursday morning saying Wallace broke a bone in his right hand and is expected to miss three to five weeks. Wallace broke a different bone in the same hand earlier this season, causing the senior to miss five games.

Wallace is averaging a team-high 15.3 points and 4.4 assists per game, along with 5.4 rebounds. He is coming off one of his best games of the season when he scored 26 points in a loss to Utah in the Pac-12 semifinals last week.

The 23rd-ranked Bears (23-10) take on Hawaii in the first round of the tournament on Friday in Spokane.
