STANFORD, Calif. (AP) -- Gennifer Brandon had 14 points and 12 rebounds and No. 7 California snapped fifth-ranked Stanford's 81-game winning streak against conference opponents with a commanding 67-55 win Sunday in the second meeting between the Bay Area rivals in six days.

Brittany Boyd added 19 points while Layshia Clarendon had 14 to help the Golden Bears beat a top-5 opponent for the first time since a 66-52 victory against No. 2 Rutgers on Nov. 22, 2008.

Mikayla Lyles scored 11 of her career-best-matching 14 points over the final 6:04 of the first half as Cal (13-2, 3-1 Pac-12) took control on the way to snapping Stanford's 10-game winning streak in the series and three-year run of dominance against the conference.

The Bears earned just their fourth victory in the last 46 meetings with Stanford (14-2, 3-1) -- even more special now that both are among the nation's top-10.
