No. 22 Washington State Handles Cal, 73-56
Jan. 12, 2007
BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) - Kyle Weaver had 14 points, a career-high 10 assists and six rebounds, and No. 22 Washington State won playing as a ranked team for the first time in nearly 24 years, beating California 73-56 on Thursday night.
Daven Harmeling had 14 points and seven rebounds and Derrick Low added 11 points and six assists - a big improvement on a season-low four-point performance in an upset of Arizona last weekend. Ivory Clark also added 14 points and Robbie Cowgill had 11 points and six boards in the Cougars' fourth straight victory and eighth in nine games.
Washington State (15-2, 4-1 Pac-10) ended a four-game losing to Cal and avenged a pair of two-point defeats last season. The Cougars hadn't won in Berkeley since a 55-50 victory on Jan. 4, 2004, which ended a 31-game losing streak at Cal and 22-game road skid in conference play.
Ryan Anderson had 17 points and eight rebounds to lead the Golden Bears (10-6, 2-2), who had won their previous two conference games after dropping their Pac-10 opener at Arizona.
