BERKELEY, Calif.—Freshman Tyrone Wallace had 10 points and 10 rebounds and California held off a late run to beat UC Santa Barbara 68-59 on Tuesday night.

Robert Thurman, a walk-on two years ago, scored a season-high 14 points for the Golden Bears (7-3), who snapped a three-game losing streak. Allen Crabbe added 12 points while David Kravish scpred 10.

Cal never trailed and led by 22 midway through the second half before Santa Barbara (4-6) made a late push to pull within 68-59 with 15.8 seconds left. The Gauchos managed only one shot after that.

Kyle Boswell had 12 points for Santa Barbara.

The Bears, coming off back-to-back home losses to No. 21 UNLV and No. 17 Creighton, had no trouble with the smaller Gauchos but did most of the damage with two of their lesser-known players.

Wallace, who went into the game averaging only 6.2 points, struggled with his shot most of the night but scored all 10 of his points after halftime when Cal built a 58-36 lead. The 6-foot-4 guard also had 10 rebounds for the second consecutive game.

Thurman, a backup center who had reached double figures in points only once previously this season, had 10 points in the first half, all on second-chance opportunities. He finished 7 for 11 from the floor while helping the Bears outscore the Gauchos 40-16 in the paint.

Thurman also helped hold Santa Barbara leading scorer Alan Williams to a season-low eight points on 4-of-18 shooting.

That helped take some of the pressure off Crabbe, who was coming off the worst shooting performance of his Cal career.

Crabbe, who missed his first 12 shot attempts in the loss to Creighton, made his first bucket early against Santa Barbara and took only five shots in the second half.

The Gauchos couldn't keep up despite matching their season high of 13 3-pointers and fell to 1-5 on the road. Santa Barbara has reached double digits in 3s in its last five games.

Cal remained unbeaten in nine games against Santa Barbara in a series dating to 1948.

Thurman had eight points as part of a 12-5 run late in the first half when Cal pulled away. Crabbe, coming off a 6-for-26 performance in a 74-64 loss to Creighton, added four during the burst to help the Bears take a 32-22 halftime lead.

The 22 points are the fewest allowed in a half by Cal this season.

It could have been worse.

The Gauchos scored their first 12 points on 3-pointers and had six 3s before the break, but went just 2 for 12 inside the arc.

Cal extended its lead to 22 midway through the second half before Santa Barbara cut the gap to 67-55 on Brown's third 3-pointer with 2:15 left. Nate Garth later added a free throw and a 3-pointer before the Gauchos ran out of time.
