Cal Outlasts Arizona 51-48
March 7, 2009
BERKELEY, Calif. -- Devanei Hampton scored 12 points and grabbed 10 rebounds to help No. 9 California beat Arizona 51-48 on Saturday and snap its two-game losing streak.
Ify Ibekwe led Arizona (11-18, 4-14) with 21 points and 13 rebounds. She gave the Wildcats a scare when she hit the floor in pain, clutching her left knee with 15:05 left in the game. But Ibekwe, who missed two games last week with a knee injury, stayed in the game.
Hampton and Walker, playing in the final home game of their careers, helped Cal overcome a 23-20 halftime deficit and break out of its offensive slump.
The Bears beat Arizona for the seventh straight time.
