Cal women stun Arizona St. 75-64 in Pac-12 quarters

SEATTLE — Pac-12 freshman of the year Kristine Anigwe scored 24 points, Asha Thomas added all 16 of her points in the second half and California stunned No. 10 Arizona State 75-64 on Friday in the Pac-12 tournament quarterfinals.

California, the No. 10 seed, knocked off Utah in overtime in the opening round on Thursday, then handed the Sun Devils their second straight loss. The only hope for the Golden Bears (15-16) to make the NCAA Tournament for a fifth straight season is to win the conference tournament after a lackluster regular season that included four- and five-game losing streaks in conference play.

The Bears will face either No. 12 UCLA or Arizona in the semifinals on Saturday.

Kelsey Brunner and Kianna Ibis led Arizona State (25-6) with 14 points each, but the Sun Devils will head into the NCAAs having lost consecutive games for the first time this season.
