BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) -- Kyle Fogg hit a go-ahead 3-pointer under pressure with 1:19 to play and finished with 23 points, Jesse Perry added a key basket with 45.2 seconds left and Arizona knocked California out of the Pac-12 lead with a wild 78-74 victory Thursday night.
 
Harper Kamp scored a season-high 22 points for the Golden Bears (17-6, 7-3), who were handed their first home loss of the season at raucous Haas Pavilion a few days short of a year after the teams went to triple overtime in Arizona's 107-105 win.
 
Cal's Jorge Gutierrez, who scored 18 points, had to be held back from the Arizona bench with 4:46 remaining after landing hard trying to chase down a loose ball. Gutierrez could be seen yelling at a Wildcats assistant coach and was pushed away as Arizona players stepped in to defend their side. Both head coaches came to midcourt to speak with Gutierrez.
