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.
Natasha Vital added 12 points and Ashley Walker had 11 for the Bears (24-5, 14-4) in their Pac-10 regular-season finale.
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.
