Sports briefs: Giants, FSN have partnership deal

The Giants and FSN Bay Area have agreed to a new long-term partnership. It was reported by a Bay Area newspaper that FSN Bay Area will be converted to Comcast SportsNet next year and the Giants will be a part-owner in the venture. However, basic programming — including Giants, A’s and Sharks games — will not change. Instead, the channel will add pre- and postgame shows and other related material.

After going on a 13-4 run to take the lead with less than 14 minutes left, the 11th-ranked Cal women’s basketball team picked the wrong time to go cold. The Golden Bears made just four of their final 18 shots in dropping a 56-51 decision to sixth-ranked Rutgers at Piscataway, N.J. Ashley Walker led Cal (6-2) with 14 points.
