Jan. 29, 2009
BERKELEY, Calif. (AP)--Ashley Walker overcame a sluggish first half to score 17 points, Devanei Hampton added 11 points and 12 rebounds and No. 7 California remained unbeaten in the Pac-10 with a 64-48 win over UCLA on Thursday night.
Natasha Vital had 16 points for the Golden Bears (17-2, 8-0), who won their ninth straight overall, one shy of the team record set in 1981-82 and matched in 1986-87. Cal, which also started 8-0 in the conference last year, has matched the best conference start in school history.
Doreena Campell scored 13 points for UCLA (14-5, 5-3). The Bruins, who were off to their best start in a decade under first-year coach Nikki Cladwell, were held to 10 points over the final 11 minutes and had their three-game win streak snapped.
