Series Versus Washington State
Saturday marks the 75th time the Bears and Cougars have tangled. All-time, Cal is 48-26 against the Cougars but is currently riding a three-game losing streak against Washington State. At home, the Bears are 29-6 against the Cougars. Earlier this year, Cal fell to WSU 69-42 in Pullman, a game in which the Bears were missing three of their top-five scorers.
 
Last Time Out Versus Washington State
Missing three of its top-five scorers, including freshman Jayda Curry, the short-handed Bears struggled offensively on Dec. 31 Cal shot 28.8 percent on the evening and had just one player in double figures as they fell to host Washington State 69-42 at Beasley Coliseum.
 
The Bears were held to just 14 first-half points after going 5-for-23 from the field. Cal responded by shooting better in the second half, going 10-for-29 from the floor, including 3-for-4 from beyond the arc. But the second-half surge by the Bears could not overcome the 24-point halftime deficit.
 
Cailyn Crocker led the Bears in scoring, she finished with 11 points. WSU was led by Charlisse Leger-Walker who had a game-high 22.
