Richard Solomon’s dunk with just 17.6 seconds remaining propelled the California Golden Bears over Oregon State Beavers on Thursday, 71-68.
There was one small historical tidbit in this exciting game—Mike Montgomery, who’s in his fifth-year at Cal, earned his 100th career victory at the school.
Montgomery’s 100th win didn’t come very easily, though. The Bears overcame a 12-point deficit over the final eight minutes thanks to Allen Crabbe and Justin Cobbs. The tandem combined to score 12 of Cal’s final 18 points.
Crabbe had 15 points and eight rebounds on the night, and Cobbs chipped in with 14 points and seven assists.
The one bright spot for the Beavers was Roberto Nelson’s 25 points. However, the opportunities they missed will be the silver-lining for Oregon State in this one.
