Shooting a tournament-record 69 percent from the field, the 10th-seeded Cal women advanced to the semifinals of the Pac-12 tournament after scoring the biggest upset in tournament history, a 75-64 win over Arizona State on Friday at KeyArena in Seattle.
The Bears (15-16), who knocked off No. 7 seed Utah in the first round, used 24 points and 11 rebounds from freshman forward Kristine Anigwe to eliminate the second-seeded Pac-12 co-champion Sun Devils (25-6). Anigwe made 10 of 11 shots as Cal converted 29 of 42 attempts.
The Pac-12 Freshman of the Year, Anigwe recorded her 13th double-double of the season.
Penina Davidson came off the bench to score 17 points on 7-for-8 shooting and freshman guard Asha Thomas made 6 of 7 shots on the way to scoring 16 points.
Gabby Green overcame committing 11 of Cal’s 26 turnovers by contributing six points, eight assists and six rebounds.
The Bears, who play third-seeded UCLA (23-7) at 6 p.m. on Saturday, become just the second double-digit seed to advance to the tournament semifinals.
