SEATTLE (AP) Talia Caldwell made 10 of 11 shots and finished with 22 points, and No. 6 California claimed a share of the Pac-12 Conference regular season title for the first time in school history with a 78-50 win over Washington on Saturday afternoon.
The Golden Bears won their 15th straight and got a piece of their first conference crown along with Bay Area rival Stanford. The Cardinal defeated Washington State earlier Saturday to ensure they would at worst share the title with California.
Even though California will share the title, it's still a benchmark moment for the program and second-year coach Lindsay Gottlieb. She became just the fifth coach in conference history to win a league title in her first two years as a head coach.
Jazmine Davis returned from a one-game suspension to lead Washington (19-10, 11-7) with 19 points.
