Cal Defeats Oregon State, 62-57

BERKELEY, Calif. - Patrycja Czepiec led the California Golden Bears (6-8, 2-3 Pac-10) with 24 points, as they squeaked by the Oregon State Beavers, 62-57, in the third weekend of Pac-10 play in Harmon Gym.

The Oregon State Beavers (7-6, 1-3 Pac-10) opened the first half with a 13-6 run, but Cal answered with an 11-1 run, putting them on top of the Beavers, 17-14. The teams continued to battle through a very tight first half of play.

Oregon State held the lead in the second half until the midway point, when the Bears tied it at 41. Cal led 54-51, but OSU sunk two free throws to make it a one-point game with 1:13 left.

Czepiec was fouled with 1:07 remaining on the clock, sunk both free throws and eventually won the battle.

It marked the sixth time this season that Czepiec scored 20 or more points.

Tina Lelas led the Beavers with 14 points, while Cal's Paige Bowie registered 10 of her own.
