March 5, 2009
BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) - Dymond Simon had 15 points and Danielle Orsillo added 13 to help Arizona State win its school-record 15th straight game with a 63-41 victory over California on Thursday night.
In a battle for second place in the Pac-10, the Sun Devils (23-6, 15-2) went on a 15-2 run midway through the second half and limited Cal to 31 percent shooting to break a four-game losing streak against the Bears (23-5, 14-3).
The Sun Devils can share the conference title with a win at No. 2 Stanford on Saturday, their first round-robin crown since 2001.
Devanei Hampton had 14 points for Cal, which made just 14 of 44 shots and tied its season low for points.
