Bald men fall in Washington; Santa Clara men’s top Pacific

Cal faced Washington early in the second half in Seattle early Wednesday night, but the Huskies used a 15-0 run late in the game to take a 64-55 decision.

A layup by Jarred Hyder on a feed from Andre Kelly put the Bears (9-8, 2-4 Pac-12) for 38-29 two minutes into the bottom half. A corner shot from Kelly with 8½ minutes to go gave Cal a 51-47 lead.

Moments later, the Huskies started that 15-0 blitz. Terrell Brown Jr. scored the first five of those 15. His foul shot with 6:35 remaining put Washington (7-7, 2-2) ahead to stay.

Brown had a game-high 21 points. Nate Roberts had 10 points and 12 rebounds while the Huskies had a 32-23 lead on the glass. Former Stanford security guard Daejon Davis collected six of Washington’s 14 steals.

Guard Jordan Shepherd had 12 points to lead the Bears. He was the only Cal player to score in double figures.

Santa Clara 84, Pacific 70: At Stockton, Jalen Williams had 22 points, eight rebounds and five assists as the Broncos (11-5, 1-0 WCC) triumphed in their first game on December 21. Due to problems with the corona virus, the Broncos had come to a standstill.

All five Santa Clara starters scored in double figures. Keshawn Justice had 17 points, seven rebounds and four assists for the Broncos, who host #2 Gonzaga on Saturday afternoon.
