<p class="txt">While the Cal defense was able to limit the high-flying Washington offense to just 28 first-half points, unfortunately the Bears could only muster 20 of their own. The 76-58 loss to the Huskies means that Cal will almost certainly have to beat Washington State on Saturday to keep its postseason hopes alive. It also puts Cal in a likely first-round matchup with Oregon in the Pac-10 tourney.
