Wallace, California beat USC on buzzer beater 70-69

BERKELEY — Tyrone Wallace made a deep 3-pointer at the buzzer to lift California to a 70-69 win over Southern California on Thursday night.

The Golden Bears (14-9, 4-6 Pac-12) led most of the game but trailed 66-65 with 1:04 left before rallying to win their third straight.

David Kravish scored on a short hook shot to give Cal the lead. After Katin Reinhardt's 19-foot jumper put the Trojans up 68-67, Wallace missed the front end of a one-and-one with 9.7 seconds remaining.

The Bears' leading scorer got redemption moments later after Jordan McLaughlin made one free throw for USC with 4.9 seconds left.

Cal got ball to Wallace, who rushed toward the 3-point line before pulling up and making the game-winner. That set off a frenzy near midcourt as fans and students poured out of the stands and rushed the court.
