BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) Allen Crabbe had 18 points and seven rebounds and Harper Kamp scored 15 points to lead California past rival Stanford 69-59 on Sunday in front of its first home sellout in almost two years.

Jorge Gutierrez added 11 points and a career-high 12 rebounds to propel the Golden Bears (17-5, 7-2 Pac-12) to their fifth win in the last six meetings against Stanford. The announced crowd of 11,877 at rowdy Haas Pavilion cheered Cal to a perfect 14-0 start at home this season.

Stefan Nastic scored 11 points off the bench in place of foul-prone Dwight Powell, who had 11 points and four rebounds before fouling out in Stanford's fourth straight loss at Berkeley.

Josh Owens added nine points and nine rebounds for the Cardinal (15-6, 5-4), losers of a season-high three straight.
