Can’t deny No. 13 Washington’s 62-57 loss to Stony Brook felt a little like many UW nonconference upsets to smaller schools.

Last year the UC Irvine Anteaters knocked off the Huskies 86-72. In 2012 the Albany Great Danes came into Alaska Airlines Arena and waked away with a 63-62 win. And no one is going to forget the 92-73 beatdown administered by the South Dakota Jackrabbits in 2011.

That’s four surprising home defeats in the past four years, which indicates a disturbing pattern.

Here’s the game stories from Sunday on the Stony Brook website, the Associated Press, News Tribune and UW Daily.

And here’s the box score and updated season statistics.

MONDAY MORNING LINKS:

— Tough day for the Pac-12 Sunday. California dropped its nonconference finale 55-52 to Cal State Bakersfield in front of 6,902 fans at Haas Pavilion. The Golden Bears (10-3) had narrowly avoided losing to Fresno State, Montana, Wyoming and Princeton. They were one game away from escaping into conference play without a major blemish on their resume. That all changed with the loss to a Bakersfield team ranked No. 340 in RPI.

— Not sure why UCLA decided to play its last nonconference game at Alabama. It didn’t seem like a good idea at the start of the season and it looks even worse after a 56-50 loss to the Crimson Tide. Bryce Alford led the Bruins (8-5) with 16 points and Isaac Hamilton had 15.

— It wasn’t all doom and gloom for the Pac-12 on Sunday. Arizona State defeated Harvard 56-46 and Washington State toppled UC Davis 90-83.

— Washington 2015 signee Dejounte Murray and the Rainier Beach Vikings lost 64-62 in the Les Schwab Invitational in Hillsboro, Ore., which spoiled their chance for a repeat title. Murray finished with 19 points.

— Washington 2015 signee Matisse Thybulle led Eastside Catholic to Monday’s semifinals of the Gulfshore Holiday Hoopfest tournament in Naples, Fla. He finished with 21 points, seven rebounds and two assists during a 71-33 rout of Naples High in Sunday’s quarterfinals. Here’s video highlights.
