Cal loses all steam in the second half.

NCAA Basketball: Arizona at California Neville E. Guard-USA TODAY Sports

1st Half:

Cal jumped out to a double digit lead in the first half, with the Arizona contingent on-hand stunned. Cal lead 32-26 going into half time led by Jabari Bird who had 11 points on 3/6 shooting, 5/6 from the line. Jabari Bird had highlight reel alley-oops from Charlie Moore and that got Haas rocking the entire half.

2nd Half:

The Bears lost the lead about 5 minutes into the 2nd half, but at the halfway mark of the second half, Cal was down 42-43 with 10:55 left to play. The Bears could not take back the lead, and was hampered by Ivan picking up his 4th foul with under 10 minutes left to play in the game.
