BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) -- Ivan Rabb scored 16 points with nine rebounds in what might have been his final home game, and California beat Oregon State 76-46 on Friday night.
Charlie Moore added 11 points, five assists and six rebounds while Sam Singer scored 14 on 7-of-7 shooting as the Golden Bears (19-9, 10-6 Pac-12) snapped a three-game losing streak and strengthened their hold on fourth place.
The Bears got off to a slow start but used a 20-3 run to pull away in the first half then rode a 16-5 run early in the second half to go up 55-35 on a night when California honored its five seniors in their final regular-season home game at Haas Pavilion.
It very well might have been Rabb's last game there, too.
The 6-foot-11-inch, 220-pound sophomore is being looked at as a potential first-round pick in next year's NBA draft. Rabb has not publicly announced a decision but recently hinted that it was a good possibility that he would leave college and turn pro.
Kendal Manuel scored 14 points and Stephen Thompson Jr. added 12 for Oregon State (5-25, 1-16).
