Justin Cobbs buried a game-winning jumper with
0.7 seconds left to lift California to a 48-46 win over 23rd-ranked Oregon on
Thursday.

Oregon’s Damyean Dotson missed a potential go-ahead jumper with 35 seconds
left and Richard Solomon grabbed the rebound and the Golden Bears called a
timeout.

Cal let the clock wind down before Cobbs took the ball on the left wing and
dribbled once to his left before pulling up and burying the go-ahead jumper
with 0.7 seconds showing on the clock, and the Ducks were unable to get a
desperation shot off.

Cobbs finished with 14 points, eight rebounds and seven assists and Allen
Crabbe scored 12 points for the Golden Bears (17-9, 9-5 Pac-12).

Carlos Emory scored 13 points and Arsalan Kazemi scored 11 points and pulled
down 18 rebounds for the Ducks (21-6, 10-4), who had a three-game winning
streak snapped.

Oregon led 46-43 with just over two minutes to go, but Robert Thurman tied the
game with a three-point play.

Crabbe stripped Dotson on the ensuing inbounds pass, but bricked a jumper at
the 1:24 mark.

Johnathan Loyd’s 3-point attempt rimmed out, but Kazemi was there to grab the
miss. Kazemi passed to Dotson, who dribbled the clock down to 35 seconds, but
couldn’t get his jumper to fall.

Oregon led 18-9 with eight minutes left in the first half before pushing its
spread to 22-11 at the 5:47 mark.

Cal used a 10-2 run to pull within 24-21 before Kazemi’s dunk with 56 seconds
left sent the Ducks into the break with a 26-21 lead.
