BERKELEY, Calif. -- California sophomore center Jessica Lawson will not return to the team next season, coach Joanne Boyle announced Monday.

Lawson missed the 2005-06 season with a knee injury. She was suspended for a game for her involvement in a fight at a high school girls' game in Oakland in January.

Lawson averaged 10.6 points and 5.0 rebounds per game in 2004-05 and was picked for the Pac-10 All-Freshman team.
