BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) - Jordan Mathews scored 31 points and knocked down three of his career-high five 3-pointers in the second half, leading California to an 81-75 upset of No. 21 Washington on Friday night in the Pac-12 opener for both schools.

David Kravish had a career-high 21 points and 10 rebounds for the Golden Bears, who had lost consecutive games for the first time under new coach Cuonzo Martin.

Nigel Williams-Goss had 19 points, eight rebounds and nine assists and Robert Upshaw added 16 points, eight boards and five blocks for Lorenzo Romar's Huskies, who lost their second straight. Washington has dropped the last three against Cal (11-3, 1-0 Pac-12).

Quevyn Winters missed an open 3 with 13 seconds left that would have made it a one-possession game. The Huskies (11-2, 0-1), ranked No. 13 in the previous poll, were stunned 62-57 at home by Stony Brook last Sunday.
