LOS ANGELES (AP) -Quincy Pondexter scored 18 points, Isaiah Thomas added 16 and Washington rallied from a late deficit to win the Pac-10 tournament with a thrilling 79-75 victory over California on Saturday.

Venoy Overton hit two free throws with 2.1 seconds left for the third-seeded Huskies (24-9), who emphatically salvaged their inconsistent regular season with seven straight wins.

Washington gets the Pac-10's automatic NCAA tournament bid with a dramatic win over the Golden Bears (23-10), who also are likely headed to the NCAAs with their first regular-season league title in a half-century.

After giving up 15 straight points to Cal, the Huskies went back ahead by six with 1:02 to play before hanging on for their second conference tournament title.
