Sophomore point guard Brittany Boyd had 10 points, seven assists, four rebounds and two steals despite playing just 20 minutes due to foul trouble. Talia Caldwell added 11 points and nine rebounds.
Cal coach Lindsay Gottlieb hopes to beat opponents in different ways this season. The Bears can beat teams with athleticism and they can do the job with size. Today, Cal's post players really dominated. The Bears outscored the Mustangs 52-22 in the paint.
Gottlieb also had to be happy with the Bears' offensive efficiency. Cal had 19 assists and shot 50 percent from the floor.
Next up for the Bears: The Cal Classic by Doubletree this weekend at Haas Pavilion. The tournament features Cal, Eastern Washington, Georgetown and Cal State Fullerton. The Bears open against E. Washington on Friday at 1 p.m.
