BERKELEY, Calif. — David Kravish made up for a game's worth of offensive struggles with one big defensive play that put California right back in the Pac-12 race.

Kravish struggled with his jumper most of the afternoon but forced a key change of possession after tying up Oregon's Tony Woods with 5.2 seconds remaining, taking away any chance the 10th-ranked Ducks had of forcing overtime and preserving the Golden Bears' 58-54 win on Saturday.

"I didn't have the timing to jump for it and I saw (Woods) come down, but he kind of brought the ball down," said Kravish, who had eight points on 4-of-13 shooting. "I had my hand on it, so I knew we had the jump ball."

It was Cal's first win over a top-10 team in more than five years.

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

The Ducks, coming off a 76-52 loss to unranked Stanford on Thursday, played their third straight game without starting point guard Dominic Artis and briefly lost his backup, Johnathan Loyd, to a right-hand injury in the first half.

Loyd returned, but it didn't matter much. Oregon (18-4, 7-2) committed 22 turnovers and was held scoreless over the final four minutes.

Jason Washburn had 13 points and 11 rebounds, and Jeremy Olsen added 12 points off the bench, to lead the Utes.
