SEATTLE (AP) - Sam Singer hit a 3-pointer from the top of the key with five seconds left to lift California to a 90-88 win over Washington on Sunday.

Singer's shot came after Nigel Williams-Goss gave Washington an 88-87 lead, its first since early in the first half, with a short jumper at 19.5 seconds.

California, led by Jordan Mathews' 23 points and Tyrone Wallace's 21, had fended off the Huskies for most of the second half. Washington tied the game on four occasions before Williams-Goss' jumper.

The Huskies closed to within 87-86 with 1:18 left and forced Mathews to miss an off-balance jumper, but Mike Anderson immediately turned the ball over. Wallace was fouled on the ensuing inbounds, but missed the front end of a one-and-one, giving Williams-Goss, who had a game-high 31 points, the chance to put the Huskies in front.
