BERKELEY, Calif. — David Kravish made up for a game’s worth of offensive struggles with one big defensive play that put California right back in the Pac-12 race.

Kravish struggled with his jumper most of the afternoon but forced a key change of possession after tying up Oregon’s Tony Woods with 5.2 seconds remaining, taking away any chance the 10th-ranked Ducks had of forcing overtime and preserving the Golden Bears’ 58-54 win on Saturday.

“I didn’t have the timing to jump for it and I saw (Woods) come down, but he kind of brought the ball down,” said Kravish, who had eight points on 4-of-13 shooting. “I had my hand on it, so I knew we had the jump ball.”

It was Cal’s first win over a top-10 team in more than five years.

Allen Crabbe and Richard Solomon scored 13 points apiece and Tyrone Wallace added 12 while helping the Bears (13-8, 5-4 Pac-12) win back-to-back games for the first time since December.

The Ducks, coming off a 76-52 loss to unranked Stanford on Thursday, played their third straight game without starting point guard Dominic Artis and briefly lost his backup, Johnathan Loyd, to a right-hand injury in the first half.

Loyd returned, but it didn’t matter much. Oregon (18-4, 7-2) committed 22 turnovers and was held scoreless over the final four minutes.
