BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) — Recee’ Caldwell scored 24 points and Kristine Anigwe recorded her 27th double-double of the season to help California rally from a 20-point, third-quarter deficit to beat Arizona 82-76 in overtime Sunday.

Anigwe made 1 of 2 free throws with three seconds left in regulation to tie it at 63-all to force overtime.

Arizona outscored Cal (16-11, 7-9 Pac-12) 17-4 in the second quarter and led 32-17 at intermission. McDonald’s 3-point play with 7:11 left in the third quarter gave Arizona (17-10, 7-9) a 39-19 lead. Arizona led 49-37 early in the fourth before Cal knotted it at 62 apiece with 17 seconds left in regulation.

The Golden Bears shot 17 of 30 from the field — including 7 of 11 from 3-point range — in the second half. Cal made all four shot attempts, including three 3s, in overtime.

McDonald led Arizona with 31 points.
