NORFOLK, Va. — Layushia Clarendon scored 15 points and No. 10 California survived a scare in a very sloppy road debut, beating Old Dominion 63-47 on Friday night.
Brittany Boyd added 11 points and Gennifer Brandon had nine points and 17 rebounds for the Golden Bears (6-0), who won despite committing 25 turnovers and missing 16 of 32 free throws.
Old Dominion (4-1), which opened with four wins for the first time since the 1998-99 season, trailed almost throughout, but pulled to 51-47 on a free throw by Galaisha Goodhope with 8:26 to play. Goodhope missed the second, but the Lady Monarchs maintained possession until Clarendon stole it for Cal.
The senior made a pair of free throws at the other end, sparking a game-ending 12-0 run.
Junior college transfer Shae Kelley led Old Dominion with 21 points and seven rebounds.
NO. 13 TEXAS 79, TEXAS A&M-CC 30
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) – Nneka Enemkpali tied a Texas record with her fifth consecutive double-double Friday and the No. 13 Longhorns stifled winless Texas A&M-Corpus Christi.
Enemkpali had 11 points, 18 rebounds and three blocks for Texas (5-0) and Imani McGee-Stafford scored 20 points and grabbed 11 rebounds.
Texas held Texas A&M-Corpus Christi to just 15 percent shooting for the game, allowing just nine field goals, and led 46-9 at halftime. The nine points tied a Texas record for the fewest allowed in a half.
Enemkpali's double-double streak ties the school mark set by Tiffany Jackson in 2006.
Janae Blount led the Islanders (0-8) with 14 points, seven rebounds and four steals. She was the only Islanders player to make more than one basket.
