Women's Swimming and Diving
AUSTIN, Texas -- Three days at the Texas Diving Invitational gave the Cal diving team a chance to test itself against quality competition and the Bears responded with some encouraging results as they brought several highlights back to Berkeley after Saturday's final day of competition.
Freshman Phoebe LaMay provided a definite highlight for the three days in Austin, turning in a strong performance in the 1-meter on Friday. The native of Houston, Texas enjoyed her return to the Lone Star State, finishing second to only Texas' Meghan Houston with a score of 313.25.
Second-year head coach Brooke Eubanks recently announced the signing of 10 recruits to National Letters of Intent.
Men's Cross Country
Making its first appearance at the NCAA Championships since the 2010 season, the California men's cross country team earned the third-best finish in program history after taking 23rd as a team at the championships meet that was held at E.P. Tom Sawyer Park in Louisville, Ky.
Men's Water Polo
A late goal by Luca Cupido helped the No. 3-ranked Cal men's water polo team force overtime but two goals in extra time by No. 1 UCLA proved the difference as the Bears fell 12-11 in the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Tournament championship match at USC.
Senior opposite hitter Lara Vukasovic registered 14 kills and four blocks and fellow senior Lillian Schonewise had seven kills and three blocks but the Cal volleyball team fell to Colorado, 27-25, 25-18, 25-21 on Saturday night in the final home match of the 2015 season at Haas Pavilion.
On a day when California's item of the game was three-pointer foam fingers, women's basketball fans got plenty of use out of their giveaway gear as the Golden Bears hit a program-record 14 treys in an 82-57 rout of Cal Poly (2-2). No. 21 Cal improves to 4-0 on the season.
BERKELEY (AP) -- Freshman forward Jaylen Brown had 18 points and 11 rebounds, and Tyrone Wallace helped key a big first-half run that led No. 14 California to its fourth straight win to open the season, 89-63 over Sam Houston State on Monday night.
Jordan Mathews added 18 points and Wallace had 17 points, seven rebounds and six assists for the Golden Bears (4-0), who now prepare to get tested for the first time this season later this week.
After opening with four relatively easy opponents, the Bears will play San Diego State on Thursday night in the semifinals of the Las Vegas Invitational and then either West Virginia or Richmond on Friday. That should provide a truer test of where they stand.
