Arizona vs. California final score: Golden Bears knock off No. 1 Arizona 60-58 behind game-winner from Justin Cobbs

Scott Olmos-USA TODAY Sports

Justin Cobbs hit a fadeaway jumper with less than a second remaining to help Cal upset the No. 1 team in the country.

Another unbeaten has fallen. Justin Cobbs hit a fadeaway jumper from the left baseline with 0.9 seconds left to give California a 60-58 upset win over No. 1 Arizona in Berkeley.

Immediately after Cobbs' shot fell, fans stormed the court, delaying the game for several minutes before the Golden Bears finally knocked away the Arizona inbounds pass to end the game.

This was the first loss of the season for Arizona, which now drops to 21-1. Cal improved to 15-7 and picked up its first win over a No. 1 team since the Golden Bears defeated UCLA, 85-70, on Jan. 30, 1994.

Arizona also might have lost more than just the game on Saturday. Just a few minutes in, starting forward Brandon Ashley was forced to leave the game with an apparent foot injury. The sophomore came into the game averaging 12 points and six rebounds.

Cal was out-rebounded 41-32 and Arizona shot a perfect 16-of-16 from the foul line, but the Golden Bears withstood the Wildcats behind four players in double figures. Cobbs led Cal in scoring with 19 points and seven assists. David Kravish added 14 points and 11 rebounds. Kaleb Tarczewski had 18 to lead Arizona and made 12 of the Wildcats' free throws.

With Arizona's loss, Syracuse is poised to move into the No. 1 spot after a thrilling win over Duke earlier in the night. The Orange are also undefeated, now at 21-0. No. 4 Wichita State is the nation's only other unbeaten team, also with a 21-0 mark.
