Chris Detrick | The Salt Lake Tribune Utah Utes guard Glen Dean (1) runs around California Golden Bears guard Tyrone Wallace (3) during the first half of the game at the Huntsman Center Thursday January 24, 2013. Cal is winning the game 32-22.

As they have so much this season, Utah tried to rally for a victory, only to come up short.

On Thursday night, California defeated the Utes 62-57 at the Huntsman Center, holding off a big Utah comeback attempt to win its third game of Pac-12 Conference play.

Jason Washburn led the Utes with 14 points. Jordan Loveridge had 12, while Glen Dean and Brandon Taylor had 10 points each.

Nobody, though, could contain Allen Crabbe, the leading scorer in the conference. He had a game-high 23 points, while Tyrone Wallace had 12.

Utah had 17 turnovers against the Bears, and just 12 assists.
