The USC Trojans can't get over their shooting woes to knock off the California Golden Bears.

The USC Trojans lost a hard-fought game to the California Golden Bears on Saturday night, 72-64, at the Galen Center in Los Angeles.

USC couldn't stop Golden Bears guard Allen Crabbe, who put up 27 points on just 12 shots. Justin Cobbs and Tyrone Wallace each pitched in 10 points for the 9-5 Golden Bears.

The Trojans can blame their free-throw shooting for this loss, as they missed 10 of their 18 attempts, going just 3-of-8 in the second half. They had won their previous two games and were looking for their first three-game winning streak since Feb. 2011.

The Trojans put four players in double figures, led by Eric Wise's 14 points and five rebounds. Dewayne Dedmon finished with a double-double of 10 points, 11 rebounds and four blocks, while Byron Wesley (13 points) and Jio Fontan (11 points, six assists) pitched in as well.

Both teams are now 1-1 in Pac-12 play.
