Cal senior Kristine Anigwe did something Sunday that hasn't been done in 17 years.
In a Pac-12 regular season finale against Washington State, Anigwe notched an astonishing 32 points and 30 rebounds to elevate the Bears past Washington State 80-58.
Anigwe is the first DI women's basketball player to post a 30-30 game since UMass' Jennifer Butler (2002). Anigwe's performance marked her 30th consecutive double-double, a Pac-12 record. She also tied the Pac-12 record for rebounds in a single game and currently leads the nation at 15.9 per game.
Her double-double streak of 30 now ranks fourth all-time in DI history.

On Sunday, the senior scored 11 more points than any other player on the floor and outrebounded the entire Cougars team by herself, 30-22. She pulled down 10 rebounds on offense and 20 on defense.
Her performance against the Cougars adds to her already impressive basketball resume, marking her fifth 30-point performance this year. A three-time All-Pac 12 team member, Anigwe will be chasing a fourth honor later this year.

Anigwe and her California team are currently ranked outside the AP rankings but sitting in 39th on the RPI list. The Bears rank seventh in the Pac-12, but a few more performances like this from Anigwe and Cal could be a sleeper team to watch later this month.
