Cal Wins 3rd Straight, Beats Oregon 85-77
BERKELEY (CBS/AP) — Markhuri Sanders-Frison and Allen Crabbe scored 18 points apiece to help California win its third straight Pac-10 game and deny Oregon a rare Bay Area sweep with an 85-77 victory on Saturday.
Jorge Gutierrez added 17 points despite a 2-for-11 shooting performance, and Harper Kamp scored 13 for the Golden Bears (12-9, 5-4), who ended the first half of the conference season with a winning record by posting their longest winning streak since starting the season 3-0.
The Ducks (10-11, 3-6), fresh off their first win at Stanford in 25 years, were looking to pull off their first sweep in the Bay Area since February 1976. They got 22 points from Joevan Catron, 16 from Malcolm Armstead and 14 from Tyrone Nared, but were unable to pull off the trick, losing for the 10th time in their last 11 trips to Haas Pavilion.
