Despite a career-high tying 21 points from Andrew Andrews, Washington squandered a 12-point, first-half lead and lost 72-59 to California on Saturday. It was the first loss at Alaska Airlines Arena in Pac-12 play for the Huskies who entered the game 5-0 at home against league competition and had a 7-0 home winning streak.

Despite the loss, Washington (14-12, 6-7 Pac-12) remained in a seventh place tie with Utah in the conference standings. The Huskies have five regular-season games remaining.

Here’s UW-Cal video highlights from the Pac-12 Networks and photo galleries from Dean Rutz and the Associated Press.

And here’s the game stories in the Mercury News, AP, News Tribune, UW Daily and GoHuskies.com.

SUNDAY MORNING LINKS:

Jordan Adams scored 24 points and UCLA opened the second half with a 14-0 run on the way to an 80-66 victory over Utah. Kyle Anderson had 16 points, 10 rebounds and five assists for the Bruins (20-5, 9-3 Pac-12) and Norman Powell had 13 points before fouling out with 50 seconds remaining. The Bruins have won six of seven since Utah beat them 71-67 on Jan. 18 at the Huntsman Center.  That loss dropped the Bruins out of the AP top 25, and they haven’t been back since. Got a feeling, UCLA will return to the top 25 next week.

Delon Wright scored 16 points for Utah (17-8, 6-7), which succumbed to a 12-0 run at the start of the second half. The Utes, who came in with a 3-game winning streak, are 3-29 on the road since Larry Krystkowiak became coach in 2011-12.

Anthony Brown scored a career-high 30 points and went 10 of 11 from the free-throw line to help Stanford beat Washington State 69-56 at Beasley Coliseum. Chasson Randle scored 14 points and made 5 of 6 free throws late in the second half as Stanford (16-8, 7-5 Pac-12) rebounded from a loss Wednesday at Washington. Stanford jumped on Washington State from the opening tip and never trailed in the game. The Cardinal came out with a quick 14-3 lead. Brown lit up the Cougars for 20 first-half points and came up a perfect 6 of 6 from the field and 4 of 4 from the 3-point line. The Cardinal shot 63 percent in the half and led 39-24 at the break.

Que Johnson had 14 points and four 3-pointers and DaVonte Lacy had 13 points. Lacy was well below his scoring average of 19.8 points per game as Washington State (9-16, 2-11) dropped its fourth straight.
