STANFORD -- Chasson Randle scored 17 points, Aaron Bright had 12 points and hit some big free throws in the final minute, and Stanford denied rival California a share of the Pac-12 regular-season title with a 75-70 victory on Sunday.Andrew Zimmermann added 13 points to help the Cardinal (20-10, 10-8) build a 15-point halftime lead they never surrendered. Stanford also sealed a 20-win season for the first time since coach Johnny Dawkins' opening year in 2008-09.

Allen Crabbe scored 20 points and Harper Kamp added 19 points and seven rebounds as the Bears (23-8, 13-5) fell short of sharing the conference crown with Washington and securing the top seed in the league tournament. Cal, which beat Stanford 69-59 in Berkeley on Jan. 29, has won only two of its last 11 trips to Maples Pavilion.
