PULLMAN — DaVonte Lacy and the Washington State tried to balance out a season’s worth of poor shooting against California, pouring in three-pointers at a rate befitting a team that was first, not last, in shooting percentage among Pac-12 teams.

But the Cougars’ abnormal long-range accuracy came against an opponent that was equally hot from outside and just a speck better on Wednesday night, beating WSU 80-76 in overtime.

“I think we competed well, we were down about 10 at one point,” Lacy said. “Fought back, took the lead ... played really well in overtime, had chances, Cal’s just a really good team. (It) beat the No. 1 team in the country and it wasn’t by accident.”

Lacy poured in 39 points, hitting 8 of 15 three-pointers despite Cal’s best efforts to blanket him. The Cougars (9-15, 2-10 Pac-12) made 9 of 13 three-pointers in the second half, storming back from a 39-30 halftime deficit through superlative outside shooting.

D.J. Shelton was again a terror on the board for WSU, collecting 19 rebounds to go with 18 points for his eighth double-double of the season.

Justin Cobbs led the Golden Bears (16-8, 7-4) with 22 points despite not taking a shot until the second half. He hit 9 of 11 free throws to keep Cal close once the Cougars regained the lead and scored the Bears’ final seven points in overtime.
