BERKELEY - California women's basketball fell to Washington, 80-53, in the Pac-12 Conference opener Friday night at Haas Pavilion. 

"I think we have a really phenomenal group of young women who are extremely coachable," head coach Charmin Smith said. "They're listening and they're trying. We just need time to get this thing working."

Sophomore guard Leilani McIntosh led Cal (0-3, 0-1 Pac-12) in scoring with 12 points, her most since Nov. 19, 2019 vs. UC Riverside and a career-high against a conference opponent. 

Freshmen made a strong impact in the game for the Bears, as both center Fatou Samb (10 points) and guard Ornela Muca (seven points) registered career highs. Guard Dalayah Daniels contributed an additional eight points and seven rebounds.

The Bears outrebounded the Huskies (3-0, 1-0 Pac-12) 34-33 in the contest. As a team, Cal has not been outrebounded this season. 

Freshman guard and reigning Pac-12 Freshman of the Week, Tameiya Sadler led the Huskies with 21 points on 8-for-11 shooting. 

With the postponement of the Bears' Sunday matchup vs. Washington State, Cal will continue their season with a non-conference game against University of San Francisco on Thursday, Dec. 10 at 6p.m. at Haas Pavilion.
