Pac-12 Networks' Kate Scott and Mary Murphy recap Cal's epic 81-80 walkoff win over No. 8 Stanford on Thursday night. With the Bears' win over the Cardinal last season, Thursday night's victory marked the first time Cal has beaten Stanford in consecutive meetings since 1986. Asha Thomas scored only four points all night but came up big with the game-winning shot in the final seconds. Kristine Anigwe (25 points, 24 rebounds) finished with her 21st-straight double-double and her fourth game of the season with 20+ rebounds. Stanford's Alanna Smith led the Cardinal with 21 points, nine rebounds and has scored at least 20 points in seven of her last eight games.
