Top-ranked Wildcats lose at Cal: may have lost Ashley for season

Posted: Updated:

BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) - Justin Cobbs hit a step-back jumper with 0.9 seconds left, and California stunned No. 1 Arizona 60-58 on Saturday night to hand the Wildcats their first loss of the season.

The big news for Arizona though came after the game when head coach Sean Miller said in a postgame interview that sophomore forward Brandon Ashley appears to have broken his right foot and could be lost for the remainder of the season.

Ashley went down in the early minutes of the game and did not return. He sat on the Wildcats bench in the second half wearing a boot.

Cobbs dribbled to his left and beat Nick Johnson, then pulled up in front of a defender to sink the winning shot that sent a raucous crowd at Haas Pavilion spilling onto the court. Cal coach Mike Montgomery and security had to usher fans away before the final play.

Gabe York's full-court pass was knocked down to give the Golden Bears (15-7, 6-3 Pac-12) their first victory over a top-ranked opponent since Jan. 30, 1994, when they beat UCLA 85-70 at the Oakland Coliseum.

Arizona (21-1, 8-1) was one of just three unbeaten teams left in Division I. Now only second-ranked Syracuse (21-0), which beat No. 17 Duke 91-89 in overtime Saturday, and No. 4 Wichita State (23-0) remain.
