GAME REPORT: California 90, Washington 88.

PLAYER OF THE GAME: Despite the loss, Nigel Williams-Goss had a game for the ages. He finished with 31 points, one shy of his personal best. He converted 11 of 17 field goals, including 3 of 6 three-pointers. He was 6 of 6 on free throws. The sophomore point guard also had six rebounds, five assists and a steal without a turnover in 40 minutes. Williams-Goss put Washington ahead 88-87 with a floater in the lane with 22 seconds left and was poised to be the hero.

TURNING POINT: The game wasn’t decided until Sam Singer, perhaps the unlikeliest of heroes, drained a three-pointer from the top of the key with four seconds left. It was his first three-pointer in the past seven games for the sophomore guard who finished with 11 points.

QUOTABLE: “I was in a little bit of a slump, pretty much this whole year. But I kept working, put my head down, kept getting shots up in the morning, after practice, stuff like that. It feels great to have it all pay off and finally hit a three, especially the time that I hit it.” — Singer.

BY THE NUMBERS:

4 – Points from freshman forward Donaven Dorsey the past two games since he moved in the starting lineup.

7 – UW players who participated.

8 – Washington steals, which tied a season high. Quevyn Winters had four.

88 – Points by the Huskies, which was a season high.

UP NEXT: At Oregon (15-7, 5-4), 6 p.m. Wednesday at Matthew Knight Arena (ESPN2).
