SEATTLE (AP) Brittany Boyd scored 14 of her 20 points in the second half and grabbed 10 rebounds and fourth-seeded California pulled away from fifth-seeded Washington in the second half Friday night for a 69-53 win in the quarterfinals of the Pac-12 tournament.

Mercedes Jefflo added 16 points, Reshanda Gray had 13 and Courtney Range 10 for the Bears (22-8), who face ninth-seeded Colorado, which knocked off league champion Oregon State 68-65, in Saturday's semifinals.

Jazmine Davis led Washington (23-9) with 21 points and Kelsey Plum had 15.

Cal started off cold but closed the first half with a 20-4 run to take a 32-23 lead. Washington was 2 of 12 during that stretch. Gabby Green hit a 3-pointer to start a 12-0 run that included a three-point play and two free throws from Gray.

The Huskies got within two early in the second half but Boyd and Jefflo hit back-to-back 3s to start a 10-0 run and the Huskies never threatened.
