Cal takes out No. 19 Kansas women's basketball

Bob Stanton-USA TODAY Sports

Kansas came up short in their bid of an upset at Cal.

The No. 19 Kansas Jayhawks went to Berkeley in search of a marquee win, but instead they left with a 88-79 loss to the No. 8 California Golden Bears. Angel Goodrich's 21 points weren't enough for the Jayhawks, who made several runs to get close to the Golden Bears in the second half, but couldn't get over the hump at Haas Pavilion.

Goodrich's 21 points led the Jayhawks, but she got plenty of help as three other Kansas players scored in double figures. Kansas shot 50 percent from the field, but that wasn't nearly enough because Cal shot 54 percent and out-rebounded the Jayhawks 40-27. The visitors also had no answer for Layshia Clarendon, who scored 28 points to lead all scorers.

Cal took a seven-point lead into halftime after a strong finish to the first period and looked like they were going to pull away in the second half, but Kansas cut the lead to two. Once they did that, the Golden Bears pulled away again. Kansas got close later in the half, but Cal had another answer. That was the nature of the game-- the Jayhawks erase the Bears' lead, but Cal pulls away.

Kansas just didn't have enough ammo to pull off the upset. Chalk it up to Clarendon, rebounding or anything else, Cal was just a little too good.
