BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) - Stanley Johnson had 19 points and nine rebounds, Dusan Ristic scored 12 points and No. 7 Arizona avenged last season's loss in Berkeley by crushing California 73-50 on Saturday night.

The Wildcats (18-2, 6-1 Pac-12) overcame early foul trouble to their frontcourt to finish the first half ahead by 10. They came out of the break with another big burst, going ahead by 24 points and cruising to their fourth consecutive win.

It was a small slice of redemption for Arizona after Cal upset the top-ranked and undefeated Wildcats 60-58 on Justin Cobbs' last-second shot a season ago at Haas Pavilion.

The Golden Bears (11-9, 1-6) are far from that team now. They've lost six straight and eight of nine games, falling into last place in the conference.
