Cal wins its first ever WNIT Championship!
Cal wins its first ever WNIT Championship!

Women's basketball ended the season winning 17 of its last 22 games and winning the WNIT Championship at Haas Pavilion.  This bodes well for the future of this young team.

The future certainly looks bright for coach Joanne Boyle's team after superb performances from their freshmen.

Forward DeNesha Stallworth scored 21 points and made the all-tournament team. Guard Eliza Pierra had eight points, six assists, five rebounds and three steals, and the frontcourt tandem of Talia Caldwell and Gennifer Brandon combined for 18 points and 19 rebounds.

But this was the final curtain call for fifth-year senior Gray-Lawson. The former Oakland Tech High star, who was part of Cal's four previous NCAA tournament teams, posted a career record of 103-40 and averaged 20 points in the NIT.

Despite being slowed by a hamstring pull, Gray-Lawson's first impulse afterward was to rush to her mother.

"Sometimes I don't the opportunity to thank my parents for everything," said the Bears' No. 3 all-time scorer with 1,982 points. "It was more about her than me. ... I can't believe we really won a championship."

After the jump we have more on the WNIT Champions, football's spring practice shows that the depth chart continues to be fluid on both sides of the ball, Randle and PC help lead their team to victory in the Reese's All Star Game, baseball nets an impressive sweep of Arizona, and more.
