California Edges USf Lady Dons, 62-61

Masa Radovic Scores Career-High 20

SAN FRANCISCO, CA --Amber Lacey's steal with 0:04 remaining sealed a wild 62-61 victory for California (3-3) over USF (2-3) at War Memorial Gym tonight. Freshman guard Masa Radovic, who also scored the eventual game-winning layup with 0:21 remaining, led the Golden Bears with a career-high 20 points.

California has now won back-to-back road games for the first time since March of 1993. USF was paced by sophomore center Denise Woods with 18 points and sophomore guard Jennifer Madkins, who scored a career-high 17 points in her first collegiate start.

Cal had taken a 60-54 lead when senior forward Amber Lacey scored with 3:42 remaining. However, Madkins would score the next five points of the game to cut the margin to 60-59. A pair of free throws by Woods with 0:33 to go closed out the 7-0 run and gave USF a 61-60 lead.

Lacey added 12 points and seven rebounds for Cal, while Paige Bowie contributed 10 points. Sarah Wanless was also in double figures for the Lady Dons with 10 points and grabbed a game-high nine rebounds.

The loss was the third straight for USF, which marks the first time the Lady Dons have lost three in a row since late in the 1993-94 campaign.

USF next travels to the Hawaii Tournament to face DePaul in a first round game on Sunday, December 7. The Golden Bears host Saint Mary's this Friday.
