Washington 59, Arizona State 51: Jon Brockman had 16 points and 10 rebounds, and the Huskies (19-12) rallied for the win. Washington will meet rival Washington State (24-6) in the quarterfinal round tonight. Marcel Jones led the Beavers (11-21) with 21 points, their only player in double figures. They lost all three meetings with Cal, which has won 18 of its last 20 games with the Beavers. center_img 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
