Long Beach St women edge No. 18 California in 58-56 OT upset

LONG BEACH, Calif. (AP) Devin Hudson scored 14 points, hauled in 12 rebounds and sank the game-winning bucket in overtime Saturday to lift Long Beach State to a 58-56 upset win in overtime over No. 18 California.

Long Beach State (8-1) used a 21-0 run midway through the first period to build a lead that California (7-2) whittled down in the second half. The Bears forced overtime on a Brittany Boyd jump shot that tied the game at 50 at the end of regulation, and she tied the game again at 56 in overtime before Hudson hit the game-winner at the other end with 3 seconds to go.

Boyd, who finished 21 points and 15 rebounds for California, hit a final bucket in overtime but didn't get it away before the buzzer. California played most of the game without leading scorer Reshanda Gray, who was ejected early in the first period for an intentional foul.
