    BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) -- Kim Butler scored 30 points to help Oregon State beat California 63-55 on Thursday night.

    Butler, the Pac-10's fourth-leading scorer at 17.9 points per game coming in, was 10-for-20 from the field and 10-for-14 from the foul line, finishing one point shy of her career high.

    Tiffany Ducker added 12 points and 10 rebounds for the Beavers (10-9, 4-7), who had lost four straight to Cal.

    Ashley Walker and Jene Morris each had 12 for the Golden Bears (14-8, 6-6), who have lost three of four games. Devanei Hampton added 11 points and 12 rebounds.

    The Beavers, whose starters played all but six minutes in the game, took control early and never trailed after the opening minutes.

    Hampton, the Bears leading scorer, struggled in the first half, committing five turnovers and two fouls, while scoring only two points in seven minutes. Butler scored 16 points in the half as the Beavers took a 37-26 lead at the break.

    Oregon State made it 41-27 early in the second half, but Cal steadily chipped away. The Bears pulled to 46-43 with 11:00 left, but the Beavers countered with five straight points to get the lead back to eight.

    Cal cut the margin to three with 57 seconds left before coach Joanne Boyle was called for a technical 6 seconds later. Oregon State shot 27 free throws to just seven for the Bears.
