Women's Golf Cruises to Third Title of Season

The No. 11 Cal women's golf team had already won two of its first four tournaments before its trip to Kapolei, Hawaii. The Bears now have a hat trick.

In their final tournament of the fall, the Bears dominated the field at the Kent Youel Invitational, shooting a 6-over-par 870 to win by 18 shots over No. 21 UCLA.

Cal has now won three tournaments this year, a feat never before accomplished in the program's history.

The win at the par 72, 5,900-yard Kapolei Golf Course also marks the first time the Bears have won consecutive titles.

Cal used a complete team effort to blow away the rest of the field, placing all five golfers in the top 20.

Senior Ria Quiazon recorded her second top-five finish of the fall, shooting two under-par rounds on her way to a 217 total and a second-place finish.

Freshman Sophia Sheridan had her best start as a Bear, shooting a 3-over-par 216 to place fifth.

Seven of the team's 15 rounds in Kapolei were at or below par.

Two Former Bears Make NBA Rosters

While fans may not see them ever donning a Cal jersey again, Jamal Sampson and Sean Lampley have survived NBA training camp and could be wearing more professional threads soon.

Lampley, Cal's all-time leading scorer and the 2001 Pac-10 Player of the Year, made the Miami Heat's opening day roster in his second year trying. He was placed on the injured list Monday with a sprained left foot

Lampley averaged 23 minutes, 10.8 points and 3.2 rebounds in five games in the Orlando Summer League.

After being drafted by the Chicago Bulls with the 45th pick two years ago, Lampley was one of the last cuts in the Heat's camp last year. He spent the 2001-2002 season with the Rockford Lightning of the Continental Basketball Association.

Sampson, who was the 47th pick in last June's NBA draft after averaging 6.4 points and 6.5 rebounds in his only season with the Bears, will start the year with the Milwaukee Bucks. He is also on the IL with pain in his left ankle.

Sampson saw limited playing time in the Shaw Summer League with the Bucks, averaging 17 minutes, 5.5 points, six rebounds, and one block. He shot 60 percent and averaged only one turnover per 22 minutes.

His numbers compared favorably with Bucks big men Joel Pryzbilla (20 minutes, 3.8 points, 3.3 rebounds, 0.5 block) and fellow rookie and former UCLA center Dan Gadzuric (24 minutes, 8.8 points, 8.0 rebounds, 0.8 blocks).
