On Sunday afternoon in Haas Pavilion, the California Golden Bears (15-5, 3-5 Pac-12) defeated the Arizona Wildcats (11-8, 2-6 Pac-12) by a score of 71-60. 

Asha Thomas scored a career-high 24 points to pace the Golden Bears.

California shot 30 free throws (19-for-30) in the games compared to just ten (7-for-10) for UA.

Malena Washington led Arizona as she scored 17 points, had four rebounds and also dished out four assists. 

Washington has scored in double-figures in every game but two this season. Additionally, she has hit double-figures in 12-straight games.
