Cal's Anigwe ties mark with 29th straight double-double
SEATTLE -- Kristine Anigwe posted her 29th consecutive double-double to tie the Pac-12 record and California defeated Washington 71-65 on Friday night.
Anigwe scored 20 points and grabbed 18 rebounds to tie Jillian Alleyne's conference record that the former Oregon star set between Jan. 11, 2015 and Jan. 4, 2016. The streak is also the fourth-longest in Division I history.
The Golden Bears (17-11, 8-9) won their third straight game and fifth straight in the series. They finish the regular season on Sunday at Washington State while the Huskies (9-19, 2-14) will host No. 7 Stanford.
Cal led by two at halftime before opening the third quarter on a 16-2 run with Anigwe scoring eight points. The Huskies got within four with 2:49 left in the game but missed their next six shots and Cal built a seven-point lead with 16 seconds remaining.
Missy Peterson scored a career-high 23 points and Amber Melgoza had 22 for Washington.
