Berkeley, Calif. • Justin Cobbs made an 18-foot jumper with 1 minute, 35 seconds remaining then added a pair of free throws, and California hung on to beat No. 10 Oregon 58-54 on Saturday, handing the Ducks their second straight loss to an unranked team this week.

Allen Crabbe and Richard Solomon scored 13 points apiece, and Tyrone Wallace added 12 while helping the Golden Bears (13-8, 5-4 Pac-12) win back-to-back games for the first time since December.

Fans stormed center court at Haas Pavilion and surrounded Cal's players in a raucous celebration after Oregon's Johnathan Loyd's missed jumper as the buzzer sounded. It's the Bears' first win over a top 10 team in more than five years.

Tony Woods had 14 points and eight rebounds for Oregon but failed to get a potential tying shot after grabbing E.J. Singler's missed 3-pointer with 5.2 seconds left. The Ducks (18-4, 7-2) were held scoreless over the final four minutes. —
