BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) After a disappointing loss at Stanford two days earlier, Washington was looking for some energy against California on Saturday.
The Huskies got it from freshman Naz Carter, whose spectacular tomahawk dunk sparked a decisive 16-2 run in the second half and inspired his teammates in a 68-51 Pac-12 Conference victory over the last-place Bears.
"I was, `No . . . reverse it, reverse it,' " UW coach Mike Hopkins said. "Then bam! Great play. Those types of plays are energy plays. It was not normal, but he is not normal. I saw him put his head on the rim the other day."
