Kristine Anigwe led the way for the Bears with 21 points and 16 rebounds, but fouled out in the 4th quarter and the Bears had to sweat out a bit of a Trojan run at the end.
USC led a furious charge back from to cut an 18 point lead to six, but it ultimately fizzled out.
Cal got solid contributions from Asha Thomas (12 points), Recee’ Caldwell and MacKenzie Forbes (9). Here’s the box score.
