    • Kemery Martín and Peanut Tuitele had their best outings as a Bear. Martín led the team with 19 points including 3-of-6 from deep to go along with four assists and three rebounds. Tuitele was a perfect 3-for-3 from behind the arc, which marked a career-high for 3-pointers in a game, and added five assists and four rebounds.
    • Leilani McIntosh filled up the stat sheet with 12 points, six assists and a career-high nine rebounds. 
    • The Bears had five players score in double-figures for the first time this season.
    • Cal's bench outscored Idaho's 22-8. 
  • With the her 3-pointer against Idaho, Jayda Curry kept her streak of consecutive regular season games with at least one 3-pointer going at 25 games. Her streak is the longest among all active Pac-12 players. 
  • In 26 games, Curry has 467 points for her career so far, just 33 points away from the 500-point milestone. If she gets there within the next three games, she will be the second fastest in program history to reach that mark behind Kristine Anigwe who got there in 25 career games.
  • Martín is starting to find her groove offensively as she has increased her scoring in every game played this season. The three 3-pointers she hit against Idaho were the most since she went 5-for-5 against Arizona State on Jan. 24, 2021.
  • Evelien Lutje Schipholt has been a steady rock for the team so far leading the team in rebounding at 6.7 boards per game and ranking second in scoring at 12.7 points per game. More than half of her boards have come on the offensive end.
  • The Bears bench has been a solid contributing factor this season accounting for 36 percent of the team's scoring to date. Cal's bench has outscored its opponents in all three games so far this season.
    Cal's offense is coming from multiple sources this season with four Bears averaging double-figure scoring: Curry - 13.0, Lutje Schipholt - 12.7, Martín - 11.0, McIntosh - 10.7. This is a marked improvement over last season when Curry was the lone Bear to average double-figures. 
  • Curry is currently on the Naismith Trophy Women's Watch List which represents the top 50 players in the country.

The Bears will hit the road again heading down to Southern California for the LMU Thanksgiving Tournament where they will face LMU on Nov. 25 at 6:30 p.m. and then Montana on Nov. 26 at 3:30 p.m.
