The women tipped things off at Keystone Arena with Cal escaping victorious 69-65. Advia Campbell paced the Golden Bears with a double-double (16 points, 11 rebounds).

Ryah Gadson dropped 18 points for the Vulcans, including two clutch free throws down the stretch to seal it for Cal.

Before the game, KU's Ashley Wood was honored for scoring her 1,000th career point on Sunday.

The men played in the nightcap and once again, the Vulcans won in tight fashion, 79-71.

Micah Fraction and Abdul King each registered 17 points to lead Kutztown.

California's Keith Lowe was the game's high scorer with 23 points.

The Kutztown men and women each return to action Saturday against nationally-ranked Indiana (Pa.).
