California’s Matt Bradley scored a game-high 17 points, including a 3-pointer that he banked in with six seconds left in overtime, to lift the Golden Bears to a 61-58 win over Washington in a Pac-12 game Saturday night at Berkeley, Calif.
A 3-point attempt by Washington’s Hameir Wright missed off the rim as time expired.
California (8-8, 2-1) was also led by Grant Anticevich with 13 points and seven rebounds and Paris Austin had 10 points. Austin and Bradley each had four points in overtime for Cal.
The Huskies (11-6, 1-3) shot only 29.5 percent from the field in the game and did not have a double-digit scorer until 9:19 remained in regulation.
Isaiah Stewart led Washington with 13 points and six rebounds and Jaden McDaniels added 12 points and 11 rebounds.
Bradley’s go-ahead 3-pointer was set up following a timeout after Washington’s Nahziah Carter made two free throws with 34 seconds left to tie the game at 58. The banked-in shot by Bradley came from straight away with a defender in his face.
In regulation, California called timeout with 32.2 seconds left after rebounding a miss by Carter. Anticevich missed a 3-pointer with 12 seconds remaining and Carter missed a shot beyond the arc as time expired.
The Huskies trailed 41-31 with 12:15 left in regulation before California went without a field goal made in 6:06. Washington went on a 12-2 run in that stretch with McDaniels scoring six of those points and Jamal Bey contributing four.
A reverse layup by Bey with 3:33 left gave Washington a 49-47 lead, its first advantage since 15:50 remained in the first half. Bey finished with 12 points.
Cal’s Kareem South, who is averaging 10.5 points a game, scored his first points on a layup to tie the game at 49 with 2:10 remaining in regulation. He finished with five points on 2-of-11 shooting from the field.
