BERKELEY (AP) – Keion Brooks Jr. scored 24 points and grabbed 11 rebounds and Washington earned a 65-56 victory over California on Thursday night in Haas Pavilion.

Keyon Menifield had 16 points and five assists for Washington (16-13, 8-10 Pac-12), which swept the season series. Koren Johnson added 10 points and Braxton Meah had six points to go with 10 rebounds.

Washington never trailed and had an 18-point lead with 12:03 to play. Cal used a 15-3 run to cut the deficit to 52-46 with 5:41 to go but didn't get closer. It was the Huskies fifth consecutive win in the series.

Sam Alajiki scored 13 points and Grant Newell had 12 to lead Cal (3-25, 2-15), which shot 31% overall, had 15 turnovers and lost its 12th straight game.

Washington built an early nine-point lead in the first half before Cal pulled to 22-20. The Huskies closed on a 10-2 run, capped by Cole Bajema's 3-pointer, and headed into halftime up 32-24. Brooks scored 12 points and grabbed six rebounds in the first half. Menifield added 10 points.

UP NEXT

Cal will host Washington State in its home finale at 2 p.m. PST on Saturday. Five senior student-athletes – Joel Brown, DeJuan Clayton, Jarred Hyder, Kuany Kuany and Lars Thiemann – will be recognized during a pregame ceremony taking place approximately 20 minutes before tipoff.

The story doesn't mention Monty Bowser getting 6 fouls in 11 minutes. The only other Cal player I remember getting 6 fouls was Brittany Boyd, but I'm sure that feat took more than 11 minutes. Way to rep Berkeley and Oakland!

Every year under Fox we lose our best players and reset at a lower level.

Best players now but think 2 freshmen have potential

Both need more experience and Grant needs to get stronger
