Even after an uneven performance, Justin Cobbs got his wish.

With the score tied and time running out, Cobbs drained a long jump shot with 0.7 seconds left to send California Golden Bears past No. 23 Oregon 48-46.

The shot, which came after the California (17-9, 9-5 Pac-12) ran just about all of the final 26 seconds off the clock, hit nothing except net.

”Pure as the driven snow,” California Golden Bears coach Mike Montgomery said.

The shot was bit of redemption for Cobbs, who had a team-high 14 points towards go with 8 rebounds and 7 assists. But the junior guard also had a team-high 8 turnovers.

But with the game on the line, he asked for the ball.

Allen Crabbe, the Pac-12’s leading scorer, had 12 points on 5-of-12 shooting. Richard Solomon also had 8 points and 11 rebounds.

Arsalan Kazemi had 11 points and a season-high 18 rebounds for the Ducks (21-6, 10-4), who lost their 11th straight game to the Bears. Carlos Emory scored 13 points for Ducks, which hasn’t beaten Cal since February 9, 2008.

Ducks lost sole possession of 1st place in the Pac-12 with the loss. The Oregon is tied with Arizona.

California Golden Bears, in the meantime, continued its climb up the rankings with its 6th win in 7 games. The Bears are tied with Arizona State Sun Devils for 3rd place, one game behind the Oregon and Wildcats.

The Ducks’ season-low 27.6 % shooting led on to a season low in points. Oregon was 16 for 58 from the field, 2 for 15 from 3-point range and 12 for 20 from the free throw line. Football scores

”That’s actually a disappointing loss,” said Oregon Ducks coach Dana Altman, who was going for his 600th career win. ”The guys played terribly hard, but you’ve got to hit some shots. We had some open looks and did not knock them down.”

Ducks, which led 26-21 at halftime, was up 46-43 with 2:06 to play when Robert Thurman recorded a 3-point play for Cal on a dunk and free throw to tie it.

Oregon had possession with under a minute to play but missed on 2 shots before Cal got the rebound and called a timeout with 26.3 seconds left.

Cal trailed by 11 points in the first half but came back to tie the score 29-29 on a dunk by Thurman 4 minutes into the 2nd half.

Ducks went back up 37-33 on a free throw and 3-pointer by E.J. Singler, but the Bears followed with a 6-0 run and Cobbs hit a jumper to put them up 39-37 with 7:12 to play. It was Cal’s first lead since early in the first half.

Trailing 41-39, Oregon followed with 5 straight points to go ahead 44-41 with 3:30 to play, preparing the stage for Cal’s final heroics.

Kazemi had 14 rebounds and 6 points in the 1st half, and Emory sparked Oregon Ducks early after Cal scored the first 6 points of the game.

The senior forward came off the bench to score 9 points in a 16-2 run that put the Ducks up 16-8 at the 10:18 mark.
