Five different Cal players scored at least 13 points as the Bears powered past Nevada 92-84 in a nonconference game Tuesday.
Jabari Bird and David Kravish paced Cal with 16 points apiece, while Richard Solomon and Tyrone Wallace each added 14 points. Cal jumped out to a 49-40 lead at the half and held on down the stretch.
Deonte Burton led Nevada with 26 points in the loss. Burton also added seven rebounds and five assists.
It was a much-needed win for Cal, which had dropped three of its past four games entering Tuesday, including a 72-65 loss to UC Santa Barbara on Friday.
With the win, Cal (7-3) remained perfect at home this season. All three of the Bears’ losses this season have come away from Haas Pavilion.
