Cal Upsets No. 10 Oregon at Haas Pavilion

Oregon cannot wait to get out of the Bay Area.

After being upset by Stanford on Thursday, the Cal Bears handed them another surprising defeat by the score of 58-54.

Allen Crabbe and Richard Solomon both had 13 points to lead the way for the Bears.

Cal hung tough during the first half, and had the lead until four free throws from Tony Woods gave the Ducks a 26-24 lead at halftime.

It seemed as if the Ducks would hang on for a victory midway through the second half, as a 7-0 run put them up 50-42 with 6:30 to play.

But the Bears persisted, going on a 7-0 run of their own to take a two-point lead. Justin Cobbs scored two huge buckets during that stretch. The Ducks failed to score on their final three possessions, and the fans stormed the court as the Bears knocked off the tenth best team in the nation.
