BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) - Chasity Shavers scored a career-high 32 points and made three free throws in the final 34 seconds to close out San Jose State's 68-66 upset of No. 22 California on Wednesday night.
Shavers repeatedly beat the Bears with fast-break layups and finished 11 of 19 from the field.
Alexis Gray-Lawson scored 21 points but missed on a drive to the basket with 6 seconds left. The Bears (4-4), who led by 13 in the first half, failed in their second attempt to get coach Joanne Boyle her 100th win at the school.
Samantha Marez added 13 points to help the Spartans (2-7) to their biggest win under third-year coach Pam DeCosta.
Shavers also had eight rebounds for the Spartans, who snapped a four-game losing streak.
