BERKELEY (CBS/AP) — Jorge Gutierrez overcame a terrible shooting night to make a key 3-pointer with 1:09 left to play as California held on to beat Cal Poly 51-41 on Saturday.

Markhuri Sanders-Frison had 15 points and 10 rebounds for his second career double-double while Gutierrez finished with 10 points on 4 of 14 shooting to help the Golden Bears snap a two-game losing streak at home. The win was also the 599th of coach Mike Montgomery’s career, sixth most among active Division I coaches.

California (6-4) shot just 38.6 percent from the field as a team but outscored Cal Poly 12-2 over the final 3 minutes.

Shawn Lewis scored 16 points for Cal Poly (3-7) and moved within 36 of becoming the 15th player in Mustangs history to reach 1,000 for his career.

The loss was the fourth in a row for Cal Poly.
