BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) - Jorge Gutierrez scored 34 points, Markhuri Sanders-Frison had 12 points and California held on to beat UCLA 76-72 in overtime Sunday night to snap a four-game losing streak in thrilling fashion.
The Bears blew a 12-point lead and overcame Malcolm Lee's stunning buzzer-beater at the end of regulation to finally snap their skid. Star freshman Allen Crabbe returned after missing the last two games with a concussion to score eight points, grab seven rebounds and help Cal (14-13, 7-8 Pac-10) stay above .500.
Lee had 19 points and Tyler Honeycutt scored 14 points for the Bruins (19-8, 10-4), who saw their six-game winning streak end and Cal's home fans storm the court in celebration afterward.
