LOS ANGELES(AP) -- Quincy Pondexter scored 19 points and Washington defeated Stanford 79-64 in a matchup of poor shooting teams in the Pac-10 tournament semifinals Friday night.

The third-seeded Huskies (23-9) will play No. 1 seed California (23-9) in Saturday's title game, with the winner earning the league's automatic NCAA tournament bid.

Washington hasn't been to the championship game since 2005, when it beat Arizona for its lone tourney title. Cal reached its only final in 2006, losing to UCLA.

Isaiah Thomas added 17 points and Justin Holiday 11 for the Huskies, who led all the way in winning their sixth straight against Stanford - equaling their streak against the Cardinal from 1974-77.

Landry Fields led Stanford with 20 points. The seventh-seeded Cardinal (14-18) improved their shooting to 31 percent by game's end, but were just 26 percent from 3-point range.
