BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) Harper Kamp scored on a baseline layup with 49.7 seconds left, Allen Crabbe made three late free throws and California overcame one of its worst offensive performances of the season to beat Colorado 57-50 on Thursday night.
Kamp finished with 14 points and eight rebounds and Justin Cobbs added 12 points and five rebounds to help the Golden Bears (14-4, 4-1) move into a tie for the Pac-12 lead with Bay Area rival Stanford.
California did it despite an off night from its two leading scorers, Crabbe and Jorge Gutierrez, who went a combined 4 of 26 from the floor.
Andre Roberson had 11 points and 14 rebounds for Colorado (11-5, 3-1), which had won six straight overall before suffering its first Pac-12 loss.
