PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) – DJ Rodman hit four 3-pointers and finished with 14 points, Mouhamed Gueye also scored 14 points and Washington State beat California 66-51 Wednesday night.

Justin Powell added 12 points for Washington State (8-10, 3-4 Pac-12).

The Golden Bears made seven of their last 11 field-goal attempts in the first half, including 3-pointers by Grant Newell and DeJuan Clayton that trimmed their deficit to 31-30 at halftime. Kymany Houinsou made a layup 15 seconds into the second half and Rodman made three 3s in a span of 2 minutes, 12 seconds to cap a 15-2 run that made it 46-32 for WSU with 15:34 to play.

Cal (3-14, 2-4 Pac-12), which was 2-of-12 shooting to open the second half, trailed by double figures the rest of the way.

Marsalis Roberson – the lone Golden Bears player to score in double figures – had a career-high 11 points. Cal shot just 28.6% (8 of 28) and went 0-for-11 from 3-point range, in the second half. Obinna Anyanwu, Grant Newell and Kuany Kuany added seven points apiece.

The Cougars shot 46% (23-of-50) from the field and made 9-of-21 (43%) from 3-point range but hit just 11-of-20 (55%) from the free-throw line.

The Bears had won three of three of their last four games following a 15-game overall skid, including 12 straight losses to open the season.

Washington State was coming off a 74-61 win Saturday over No. 5 Arizona that snapped the Wildcats' 28-game home win streak and gave the Cougars their first road win over a top-5 opponent in the 122-year history of the program.

UP NEXT

Cal will make its way to Seattle to face the Washington Huskies at 3 p.m. PST on Saturday, Jan. 14. The contest will be televised on the Pac-12 Network.

I may have missed it but has Fox given the reason why Askew is out? I find it strange. Is it lingering effects of covid? If so, should he be traveling with team?

Also, is Celestine close to coming back?

Askew is dealing with a slight tear to the tendon in the groin/pelvic area. And trainers are stressing caution by not rushing him back to quickly. Don't know when He will be cleared. Its not a major injury, but one that still needs full recovery before going full speed.

In the UW game the broadcast said Askew was out with a foot injury? Is it groin and foot?

Its the groin per Him. Still painful and unclear when He will be back. Doing all the treatment/pool work etc, but its an area that takes extra recovery time.

As long as as Fox can hold him out he can claim the injuries for the losses.

groins are notorious for taking a long recovery, and easily reinjured ... unpredictable when he'll be back

Maybe he can find some injured students as mid-season adds as walk-one, just to boost the numbers?
