    Arizona 80, California 76

    BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) -- Joy Hollingsworth scored 23 points to lead Arizona to a 3-pointer-fueled second-half comeback and an 80-76 upset win over California at Haas Pavilion Sunday.

    Hollingsworth led a parade of five Arizona double-figure scorers.

    Jessica Arnold had three 3-pointers and 13 points, as the Wildcats (7-12, 3-6) , ninth in the Pac-10 in long-range shooting coming into the game, made 10 of 20 from beyond the arc to erase an 11-point second-half deficit.

    Ashley Whisonant scored 15 points and had seven assists.

    Devanei Hampton led Cal (13-6, 5-4) with 21 points, and Ashley Walker and Alexis Gray-Lawson each added 16, but the Bears were doomed by horrendous free-throw and 3-point shooting. At one point, they had missed 13 of 16 attempts from the line, and finished with 10 of 29.

    From long distance, the Bears were just two of 14, a surprising effort from the third-leading 3-point shooting team in the conference before the game.

    Cal also dominated the boards, as Walker had 15 of the teams 57 rebounds, and recorded her sixth straight double-double.

    But even though Arizona could manage just 35 rebounds, the Wildcats made enough threes -- and the Bears missed enough free throws -- to record their 20th win in their last 21 games with Cal.

    The loss also snapped a nine-game home winning streak for the Bears.
