Walker's Effort Helps Lift Bears to Second Round

March 21, 2009

LOS ANGELES -- California's Ashley Walker always saves her best for the NCAA tournament, and the senior did so again.

Walker scored 21 points and Cal's defense overwhelmed Fresno State in a 70-47 first-round victory Saturday night in the Trenton Regional.

The Bears (26-6) advanced to a second-round game against either fifth-seeded Virginia or 13th-seeded Marist.

LaShay Fears tied her career-high with 18 points and Marnique Arnold grabbed 11 rebounds for the 13th-seeded Bulldogs (24-9), whose five-game winning streak ended as they went out in the first round for the second consecutive year.
