PULLMAN — Washington State put together a strong first half against No. 6 California, but the Cougars lost their shooting touch and the game in the second half.

Layshia Clarendon scored 26 points as Cal beat WSU 73-60 Thursday in women's basketball action.

"I thought we competed very, very hard," WSU coach June Daugherty said. "Our offense did some good things."

Washington State (10-18, 6-11 Pac-12) stayed even with the Golden Bears in the first half, even leading 35-33 with two minutes left, before Cal sank three late three-pointers to take a 42-35 halftime lead.

But in the second half, Washington State's shooting percentage fell from 50 percent to 30 percent.

Afure Jemerigbe added 14 points for California (26-2, 16-1).
