BERKELEY - Point guard Natasha Vital had consecutive 14-point games and nearly notched a triple double against Oregon as the Golden Bears advanced to the final of the Pac-10 Women's Basketball Tournament with two wins over the weekend, making the sophomore the recipient of Muscle Milk California Student-Athlete of the Week.

When the Bears took the floor at HP Pavilion in San Jose on Saturday for their quarterfinal matchup against the Ducks, Vital delivered 14 points, 9 assists, and 7 rebounds in a thrilling 67-60 win for Cal. The 5-8 playmaker from Stockton added two assists, three rebounds and one block to her next 14-point outburst Sunday, helping Cal edge Arizona State in a 65-61 nailbiter.

The two wins set up the third meeting of the season between the Bears and Stanford Cardinal, this time for the Pac-10 Championship.
