TUCSON, Ariz. – Four Arizona players scored in double-digits, but the Wildcats (4-13, 0-6) fell to No. 19 California (13-4, 5-1), 79-64 on Monday afternoon at McKale Center.

Seniors Carissa Crutchfield and Erica Barnes and freshman LaBrittney Jones all posted season-high scoring figures with 16 points.

Crutchfield's 16 marked a career-high, including 6-of-14 from the field and 3-of-6 from behind the arc. Crutchfield also added four rebounds and three assists, for her 12th game this season with three or more assists.

"We kept the game close," Crutchfield said. "We just have to figure out what to do to win these games. I would want us to take some of the things we did in this game and use them in other games."

Barnes shot 8-of-10 from the field and also posted seven rebounds for the Wildcats.

Jones' 16 also marked a career high, including a perfect 8-of-8 from the free-throw line. Jones also had a team-high eight rebounds.

"(LaBrittney is) going to give you her effort the entire game and we needed her production tonight," Arizona Head Coach Niya Butts said. "She stepped up and had big rebounds for us but also scored the basketball. She continues to get better."

Senior Kama Griffitts recorded 10 points, grabbed four rebounds and three assists.

As a team, Arizona posted 14 offensive rebounds to the Bears' 10 and scored 20 bench points to Cal's 16.

California started the game on a 12-8 surge, but back-to-back shots by Jones and Griffitts tied the game at 12. From there, the Bears went on a 10-2 run and Arizona could not close the gap going into halftime.

In the second half, the Wildcats pulled to within seven, but the Bears capitalized on free throws and finished the game, 79-64. As a team, Cal made 23-of-29 shots from the charity stripe.

Junior Brittany Boyd led the Bears with 24 points, seven assists and five rebounds.

The Wildcats will continue Pac-12 play on the road, traveling to Colorado on Friday, Jan. 24 at 7 p.m. and Utah on Sunday, Jan. 26 at 3 p.m.
