Cal says anxiety could be part of Julius’ cramping issue

Julius Randle had to come out of the game with cramps again today against Vanderbilt. When asked if the cramps could be a result of tension or pressure, Cal said that’s possible:

“Could be. I don’t know. All I told him was if I don’t see you running right, I’m playing Alex. So either run right, or you’re coming out. And again, you have to understand, he’s in a dog fight. I think right now, he’s the only college player that when he catches the ball, he’s got three players on him. I don’t know if there’s another college player, you’d have to tell me who that would be. He has three guys on him when he catches it. And they’re being physical. So, he’s not just running up and down the court, he’s like in a a football game. So yeah, he’s exerting it physically, cardiovascularly, and there’s some anxiety, so that could play into it. But he’s fine.”

However, Cal does want him to dunk more: “Why didn’t you dunk them, why are you trying to lay them?”

More bananas, Julius.

    Just give Randle a 5mg of Valium and he will be okay.

    Forget Gatorade. They should only drink Pedialyte for electrolytes to prevent cramping. That’s what the military uses for soldiers in the desert.

    Agree with Dan. Can’t understand why college athletes cramp. Gatorade is junk, always has been; and it it’s widely known in the spring world?
