COLUMBUS, Ohio(AP) -- DeNesha Stallworth scored 13 points and three teammates also hit double figures to lead No. 22 California past Southern U. 78-47 in Saturday's opening game of the Buckeye Classic.

Rachelle Federico and Layshia Clarendon each added 11 points and Gennifer Brandon had 10 for the Bears (3-1), who advance to Sunday's championship, where they'll play the winner of No. 3-ranked Ohio State vs. IUPUI.

Hannah Kador had 14 points, and Ashley Augerson added 11 for the Jaguars (3-1).

Southern was doomed by cold shooting. The Jaguars missed 14 of their first 15 shots, making three of their last six shots of the half to end up 6 for 33 (18 percent) to trail 24-16. They shot 48 percent in the second half, but Cal scored the first 13 points and never looked back.

No one has shouted yet.
Be the first!
