Johnson scores 34, Corley 22 as Bears break 15-game skid 


STANFORD — Courtney Johnson scored 34 points and Kenya Corley had 22 as California snapped a 15-game losing streak against Stanford with an 82-73 victory over the Cardinal on Friday night. 

The Golden Bears (11-11 overall, 6-6 Pac-10) beat their archrivals for the first time since Feb. 12, 1993. The loss ended the Cardinal’s seven-game winning streak and knocked Stanford (14-8, 8-4) out of a first-place tie in the Pac-10. 

Cal won its fifth straight and stayed in strong contention for a postseason tournament under first-year coach Caren Horstmeyer. The Bears won at Maples Pavilion for the first time since 1986. 

Lindsey Yamasaki had 21 points and Sarah Dimson added 14 for the Cardinal, who missed 11 of their 14 3-point attempts and were outrebounded 44-34.
