Jon Brockman leads the Huskies with 10 points, but his minutes were limited due to picking up two quick fouls and then his third a few minutes before the half. However, Artem Wallace has stepped up as a factor under the basket with nine points ... and yes, that odd number indicates that he even hit a foul shot.
Cal's Ryan Anderson leads all scorers with 13.
Both teams are shooting under 40 percent, so the game seems there for whichever team can manage a hot streak in the second half.
That said, the Huskies played ahead almost all of the first half and have seemed generally in control so far.
Never miss a local story.
It's a big one: the difference between 4-5 or 3-6 at the conference midpoint is significant.
