Lindsay Gottlieb earned her 99th career coaching victory. Gottlieb is 99-51 in four and a half seasons at UC Santa Barbara and California combined.
California remains atop the Pac-12 lead at 8-1 in the conference.
California now leads the all-time series 36-28 and has won the last 13 meetings between the two schools. The 13-game winning streak against the Beavers is Cal's current longest streak against a Pac-12 opponent.
California remains undefeated in Pac-12 road games at 5-0 this season.
California has now led at the half in 17 of 20 games this season with its 27-14 lead over Oregon State, and the Bears are 16-1 in those games - the lone loss coming to Stanford at Haas. The Bears did not lead against Duke (trailed, lost) or Colorado (1st Meeting - tied, won; 2nd Meeting - trailed, won).
California started its regular lineup of Boyd, Brandon, Caldwell, Clarendon and Jemerigbe after not using the lineup against Utah last Sunday due to Brandon's injury. Reshanda Gray started in Brandon's place against Utah.
California matches its longest winning streak of the season at six game - the third time the Bears have reeled off six straight wins this year.
The Bears allowed just 14 first half Oregon State points - a season-best single-half defensive performance for Cal and season-worst single-half offensive performance for Oregon State.
Held Oregon State to 38 points - the third-best defensive performance against a Pac-12 opponent in program history. The record for points allowed was 34 set twice (last vs Washington State - Feb. 11, 2009). It was also the fewest allowed against any opponent this season, besting the 41 allowed against Saint Mary's.
