Bears Get The Victory Against Vanguard In Exhibition Game

November 3, 2022

BERKELEY –  The California women’s basketball team led wire to wire in an 80-58 victory over Vanguard in its sole exhibition game of the 2022-23 season at Haas Pavilion Thursday night.

Jayda Curry was impressive all night going 10-13 from the field including 8 of 10 from three-point range on her way to a game-leading 30-point scoring night. Curry’s eight three-pointers topped her career-high of four which she had against Stanford on Jan. 21 of last season and the 30 points matches her career-high. Evelien Schipholt added 16 points on 6-11 shooting and Ugonne Onyiah was the sole player with double-figure rebounds with 10 on the night.

Cal jumped out to an early lead with an 11-0 run to start the game before finishing the half with a 12-point lead on a Curry three-pointer at the buzzer. The Bears added to their lead in the second half building its biggest lead of the game of 22 points in the third quarter fueled by four Curry three-pointers. Cal’s interior scoring was a factor as the Bears finished with a 34-12 edge in paint points.

“This team has more depth than last year,” Cal head coach Charmin Smith said. “We have some perimeter abilities that we didn’t have last year, some people that are more dynamic on the wing that we’re excited about, but we need more time to gel and get in sync. We’ll get there.”

Newcomer Kemery Martin and veteran Leilani McIntosh distributed the ball well with each going for six assists to lead all players.

Vanguard’s Halle Si'I led the team with 12 points and had two other players finish in double-figures.


Cal opens the 2022-23 regular season at home on Monday, Nov. 7 against Cal State Northridge. The contest will start at 4 p.m. PT and will be streamed through the Cal Live Stream.
