    EUGENE, Ore. -- Devanei Hampton couldn't do all it by herself for No. 22 California.

    Eleanor Haring scored 17 points, and Oregon overcame Hampton's 27 points and 13 rebounds to upset the Golden Bears 62-42 Thursday night at McArthur Court.

    Hampton, a 6-foot-3 sophomore, was 10-for-17 from the field, but the rest of the Golden Bears missed 24 of their 30 attempts.

    "We did a really good job on their guards, making them take tough shots," Oregon coach Bev Smith said. "We concentrated on making them work on the offensive end."

    Taylor Lilley added 10 points off the bench for the Ducks (15-10, 7-8 Pac-10), who have won five of their last six games. Oregon shot 61 percent from the field in the second half and 48 percent overall.

    "I definitely think we wanted it more in the second half," Lilley said.

    California (19-7, 9-6) committed 19 turnovers and shot 34 percent. The Bears were also 0-for-9 on 3-point attempts. Ashley Walker, Cal's leading scorer, had four points and five turnovers.

    "Someone had to come and help Devanei tonight, you know," Golden Bears coach Joanne Boyle said. "We had a bad practice, a bad shootaround and followed it up with a bad game. We're very complacent right now."

    Oregon led 23-20 at halftime. Hampton scored Cal's first seven points of the second half to cut the Golden Bears' deficit to 29-27.

    "She's is tough, one of the toughest post players in the Pac-10," Oregon forward Jamie Hawkins said. "She creates a lot of contact and finishes well with contact."

    But the Ducks pulled away with a 15-2 run midway through the second half, capped by Lilley's 3-pointer with 5:30 remaining. The Golden Bears were scoreless for almost 5 minutes during Oregon's run.

    Micaela Cocks hit a pair of free throws to give Oregon its largest lead, 60-38 with 1:21 left.

    "We're a team and there are just some things we need to work on together," Hampton said. "Just because our shots aren't falling on offense we still have to grind it out on defense. Tonight our defense didn't quite get it."
